Great Covers

Throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s, Nick Cardy was virtually DC’s go-to cover artist, and he produced dozens of memorable, well-designed covers. Often he’d work off of sketches by cover editor and eventual publisher and president Carmine Infantino.

This cover to BAT-LASH #2 is a great example. The white border perfectly frames the action, and the dark gravestone also frames both Lash and the girl, giving a sense of claustrophobia to the situation. That beautiful deep blue snowy sky also aids in mood and atmosphere.
