R.I.P. Nick Cardy.

Another great comic book artist is now lost to us, with the passing of Nick Cardy, on November 03, 2013 at the age of 93. 
Cardy was best known for his years at DC Comics, where he was most closely associated with AQUAMAN and TEEN TITANS.   Below are cover examples of each series – and above is my favorite of all of Nick Cardy’s covers, the wonderful image from ACTION COMICS # 425 (July, 1973)!  ...How do you not love THAT!
Mark Evanier will tell you much more, at THIS LINK. 
AQUAMAN # 18 (1964) Click to enlarge.  Interesting to note which Justice League members can and cannot breathe underwater! 
...And poor Robin will probably have to sit at the "kids table" with Aqualad, while the adults talk shop! 
TEEN TITANS # 16 (1968) Kid Flash and Wonder Girl are probably still sore over not being invited to the Sea King's wedding! 
Thank you, Nick Cardy, for these moments -- and so many more!
