Sid Couchey

Sid Couchey (May 24, 1919 - March 11, 2012)

Sid Couchey got his start drawing by assisting John Lehti on the comic strips Tommy of the Big Top and Tales from the Great Book. He would go on to drawing backgrounds for books based on TV shows Lassie, Big Town and Howdy-Doody.

In the early 1950's Couchey would work as an assistant for Joe Shuster. However his big break came when Harvey Comics was looking for cartoonists. Couchey would work on Little Dot, Little Lotta and Richie Rich during the 1950s and 1960s.

Couchey was honored in 1994 with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Kansas City Comics Conventions, alongside John Byrne, George Perez and Lee Falk...
