The Grooviest Covers of All Time: More Comics Nick Cardy Made Me Buy!

Couldn't you just spend a weekend gazing at a gazillion Nick Cardy covers? Well, ten will have to do for now, but take your time and enjoy, Groove-ophiles...!


  1. Cannot. Ever. Go Wrong with Nick Cardy.
    Thanks. Great post. MORE.

  2. Love Cardy's art. That Batgirl/Superman cover is iconic to my young self when I first saw it.

  3. Nick Cardy covers are my "Golden Age" of comics! Thanks for a great post!

  4. I had every issue except for the Witching Hour. Superman with Batgirl is my fave. Great artist!

  5. Creamy goodness, that's how I describe the elegant beauty of a Cardy cover.

    Rip Off

  6. My brother had that Superman / Batgirl issue. Loved it back then and still think that it's the best of the bunch. I still have Superman Family #165. Another great cover but interesting that he drew Supergirl's boots with high heels.

  7. To me Nick Cardy was a such a come down from Neal Adams, who had done the bulk of DC's covers before him, that I never could really appreciate his efforts. I did like his art on Teen Titans and Aquaman, though.

  8. After looking at this I immediately went on eBay and bought that issue of Witching Hour. Loved all of DC's horror titles and had completely forgotten about this issue, thanks for the reminder!

  9. Cardy was aces, and a sweet guy to boot. Glad I got to meet him. Still, you have to wonder how far NASA would've gotten with the Titans' attitude. "Um...Houston? I seem to have lost track of astronaut Aldrin." "That's okay, how much trouble could he get into on the Moon?"
