One of the fun parts of this project is scouring over covers from every era of comics for images to use. There are definitely some artists who really stand out at the top of the field for me when it comes to cover images that are both beautiful to look at and which really sell the story being told inside. In my opinion, Marvel's greatest cover artist was Gil Kane, while the DC title easily goes to Nick Cardy, whose work I used here. Whether it was a Superhero, Horror, Western or even Romance title, Cardy was always able to capture a pivotal moment from the issue and present it in a very enticing way. I would see those covers and just had to find out what happened inside. It's no wonder DC utilized him as their main cover artist for so many titles.
