JLA and The Champions / Superman and the FF / JSA and The Hulk



Another hundred milestone deserves another 100-Page Giant! Nick Cardy was far and away my favorite DC cover artist and he really got a chance to show his skills on the various over-sized comics.  Cardy would present multiple adventures on a single cover, sometimes having to sell a story with a two-square inch image... and he always pulled it off!  I remember seeing ads for some of those comics and promising myself I would track them down.  It was always a great feeling when I finally got hold of one of those issues and discovered the stories within.

Wow! That is an awesome cover!

I'd kinda forgotten who The Champions were.

I would love to see Mike Parobeck's JSA with The Hulk. I was hooked on his work in the '90's. JSA, The Batman Adventures, The Fly. He did an issue of Superboy that was a Superboy Adventures that was pretty fun. What a loss that he isn't with us.

Congratulations on the milestone! It would be great if the comics industry actually brought these characters together. It would be must-read comics!

This definitely looks like it would be an epic issue, and one to attract buyers in the 60s and 70s. I'd sure buy it!

And speaking of the Champions, is there any chance of teaming them up with the Champions? That is, putting Marvel's team of that name together with the eponymous team from the superhero RPG?

I don't know much about that RPG - I was more of a D&D kid.

The Champions RPG did have a comic, though I don't know anything about it beyond its existence. Might be worth researching someday, just for the namesake.

Congrats on another milestone! Here's to many more!

What an awesome cover...! I had all of these originals and you used them well here. I was never a HULK fan so the JSA-Hulk story would be the one I would read last. :-)

Cardy has become one of my favorites, too. I didn't know his name until I read the DC Showcase on Bat Last and volume 2 of Brave and the Bold (this despite I own a lot of those old titles). I just recently found an old magazine titled Comic Book Artist from the late 90s. They interview many then-veteran artists and writers. There's a cover story on Cardy.
