This was the final panel I attended at MegaCon 2012! Moderator Renee Witterstaetter interviewed Mr. Cardy about his artwork, which was done during his Army service in Europe during World War II. Nick shared both humorous and grim stories about military life back then, as well as touching on his development as an artist and his comic book career.

NICK CARDY: THE ARTIST AT WAR had a limited press run, so to check on the availability of copies of the book, send an e-mail to evaink@aol.com.
