Nick Cardy has been a cartoonist and illustrator for over 50 years. Spanning the Golden Age to the present, Cardy's career began in 1939 with the Eisner/Iger shop, which produced the "Spirit" newspaper supplement, "Plastic Man" comic books and more. Cardy went on to illustrate newspaper strips, including "Tarzan," and enjoyed a 25 year association with DC Comics before moving on to magazine and movie poster illustration. As well as being one of DC Comics' top Batman and Superman cover artists, fans remember that in the 1960s, Nick helped define comics' Silver Age with sequential artwork on "Aquaman," "Teen Titans," and "Bat Lash." The artist's contributions to the comic book industry earned him the prestigious "Ink Pot Award" for Outstanding achievement. Cardy did occasional non-comics illustration work throughout the decades in which he focused primarily on comic books and strips. But in 1975 the artist decided to focus on illustration, particularly movie and television work. Some of the properties he worked on include "Bad News Bears," "Return of the Pink Panther," "Meatballs II," "California Suite," and even "Apocalypse Now." This volume offers an exploration of Cardy's art.

About the Author

John Coates was Sadleirian Professor of Pure Mathematics at the University of Cambridge from 1986 until 2012. Most of his research has focused on the mysterious, and still largely conjectural, connections between special values of L-functions and purely arithmetic questions, largely via the p-adic techniques of Iwasawa theory. Professor Coates was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of London in 1985, and served as President of the London Mathematical Society from 1988 to 1990. He was awarded the Senior Whitehead Prize by the London Mathematical Society in 1997.
Kurt Busiek has been writing comics professionally since three days before he graduated from college in 1982, when he sold a "Tales of the Green Lantern Corps" backup story that appeared in "Green Lantern #162." Since then, he's worked on just about everything from "Action Comics" to "Zot!," including runs on "Avengers," "Superman," "Conan" and others, and has co-created "Thunderbolts," "The Autumnlands," "Arrowsmith" and more. He's best known for his work on the multiple-award-winning "Marvels" and "Astro City."
