[removed] [removed] Russ Cochran's Live Comic Art Auction October 14th, 2008

Post Office Box 469
West Plains, MO 65775
(417) 256-2224

For the past 30 years Russ Cochran has been collecting and publishing comic art. Russ Cochran was born in West Plains, Missouri. Without television in the 1940s, Russ developed a passion for comic books. In 1964 Russ earned his Ph.D. in Physics and became the Chairman of the Drake University Physics Department in Des Moines, Iowa. As time passed, Russ felt the desire to become a collector of the comic books he had always enjoyed in his youth. The hobby brought him to his first comic book convention in 1965. Russ pursued a collector's connection with Bill Gaines, publisher of EC Comics and MAD Magazine. Bill Gaines and Russ Cochran shared a mutual enthusiasm which led to a great friendship. Their relationship inspired Russ Cochran to republish the entire collection of EC comics. In 1975 Russ followed his dream by moving back to West Plains, Missouri while devoting all of his energy toward publishing. Today Russ Cochran's Auction offers select comic art for those collectors who share his appreciation and nostalgia.
