Camera-ready comic art drawing for Out Our Way
- Description (Brief)
- This pen-and-ink drawing produced for the Out Our Way single-panel daily comic strip shows a mother’s musings about generational differences.
- Negley W. "Neg" Cochran (1913-2001) began his career in 1936 by drawing the Sunday comic pages for Bela Zaboly’s Otto Honk. After a few months Cochran left the strip to take over from Clyde Lewis on the strip titled Herky, which he drew until 1941. Beginning in 1957 Cochran worked on J. R. Williams’ Out Our Way. He drew the popular strip for the remainder of its run until 1977.
- Out Our Way (1922-1977) was a comic strip rooted in nostalgia for the small-town life that resonated with creator J. R. Williams. The daily panel had a rotating cast with no official star, and a large array of backdrops from factory floors to cattle ranches.
