Renowned commercial illustrator, designer and comicbook artist Nick Cardy, now in his 90s, has been drawing all his life. And thank goodness for that, as these recently unearthed sketches contribute not to our pop culture history – as do his other works – but to our history.

Before beginning his career in comics, Nick was one of the young Americans shipped overseas to fight in World War II. He proceeded to do what he did best – carry a sketchbook and document his time in the conflict from beginning to end. From his basic training in the US, Cardy was deployed with the 3rd Armored ‘Spearhead’ Division, and fought through Europe (receiving two Purple Hearts on the way), ending up in Paris after VE Day. His sketches – in pencil, pen and watercolor – are extraordinarily vivid, and capture not only the humor and camaraderie, but also the horror of war.

Nick Cardy: The Artist At War presents the entire contents of Cardy’s wartime sketchbook, alongside his own commentary. It’s a chronicle of one man’s journey, but one that speaks for millions.
