Bat Lash TPB cover inks over Nick Cardy

It's possible I've already posted this one, but for the life of me, I can't find it anywhere. My apologies if this is another accidental rerun.

Nick Cardy was one of my favorite artists when I was growing up in the '60's. From Teen Titans, through Brave and the Bold, Aquaman and the series that I would consider his masterpiece, Bat Lash.

He's a gifted storyteller on paper and in person and this was the one time we got to work together; a cover for the trade paperback collection of the 2008 series. Nick wanted to hang on to his pencils if possible so I told him I'd be more than happy to ink a blueline print and return his pencils to him untouched. He drew the cover so tight that my inks weren't really needed, but it was a genuine thrill to do this job so I'm glad that DC didn't feel the same way.


  1. LOL....will you please just go draw an issue of Jonah Hex?

  2. I'm working on something you'll like waaaay more than that.
