Ohio State University’s Cartoon Research Library is just a wonderful place!
I first discovered it attending the Festival of Cartoon Art a few years ago.
They describe their mission as developing “a comprehensive research collection of materials documenting American printed cartoon art (editorial cartoons, comic strips, comic books, graphic novels, sports cartoons, and magazine cartoons) and to provide access to these collections.”
Do yourself a favor and visit, if not in person, at least online!
Maybe I’ll see you at the next Festival!
