When I see this cover, I remember 40 years ago, trudging through a numbing blizzard, at night, to a drug store (on Colfax Avenue), to buy some medicine for my mom who was ill in bed. Passing the comic spinner, I remember doing a classic double take when this comic caught my eye. I bought it and a few other DCs (that I don't remember at all) and made my way back home, chilled to the bone. After attending to my mom's needs, I settled down to the comics, saving this one for the last. Now cozy and comfortable, this cover and its situation seemed all the more chilling, having just come in from the cold, thankful I didn't have to hide from passing warriors.

My Favorite Nick Cardy Cover
It's amazing how comic book covers have memories embedded within them. That is to say, seeing a certain comic cover will trigger a specific memory, usually of the first time I saw it.
