Sid Couchey wove the North Country into comic book history

Listen to this story
Tonight at the Wadhams Library in Essex County, North Country comic book illustrator Sid Couchey will give a talk and answer questions about his life.

Couchey, who is 91 years old, was a so-called "factory artist" for decades. He drew characters like Richie Rich and Little Lotta for Harvey Comics.

When Brian Mann first profiled Couchey six years ago, he found that the artist often worked North Country scenes into his art.
