I got a postcard from Russ Cochran’s Comic Art Auction announcing the end of their printed auction catalogs, and the move on-line to www.russcochran.com. If you’re not familiar with Russ, he’s the “Godfather” of comic book original art auctions. His mail-bid format auctions sold the EC comics original art archives “back in the day”, and were surely the inspiration for modern comic art auctions like those by Sotheby’s (R.I.P.), Heritage or Comiclink. While I love printed art auction catalogs, in my humble opinion this change was long overdue. Welcome to the 21st century, Russ!
