Description:
Nick Cardy Teen Titans #28 Aqualad vs. Robin Cover Original Art (DC, 1970). Nick Cardy fans -- feast your eyes on this, the first vintage Teen Titans cover by Cardy Heritage has offered to date. Aqualad lands a right cross on Robin in this jaw-dropping cover by Cardy. The line work is powerful, while also atmospheric and sensitive, and Cardy's pencils and inks create an emotional cover hook that crackles with tension. This is truly the vision of a seasoned comics master at work. This Bronze Age blockbuster has an image area of 10" x 15", and the art is in Excellent condition. It's a "Grail piece" for a Teen Titans and/or a Nick Cardy fan.
