On Sunday, November 3, 2013, legendary comic book artist Nick Cardy passed away at the age of 93. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Cardy at the 2013 MegaCon in Orlando, Florida. I attended his two panels, which I recorded and posted as EPISODE 218 PART IV: TITANS FOREVER! PANEL! and EPISODE 218 PART VIII: NICK CARDY: THE ARTIST AT WAR PANEL! I posted clips from his second panel, where Mr. Cardy discussed how he got started in the comic book industry with moderator and editor Renee Witterstaetter, at the beginning of this episode. Copies of his book, NICK CARDY: THE ARTIST AT WAR were still available at the time of this recording. Renee Witterstaetter’s tribute to Mr. Cardy can be found here.

Three eras of Teen Titans stories came together at MegaCon Saturday afternoon when original TEEN TITANS artist Nick Cardy was joined by George Pérez, who drew the Titans in what was probably their most popular era, and Dan Jurgens, writer and artist of the Titans during the mid to late 1990’s. The panelists shared stories about working on Titans stories and answering questions from the audience, including their views about the New 52 version of the Titans.

Thanks go out to Nick Cardy, George Pérez and Dan Jurgens for allowing me to record their panel and post it for this episode.
