Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum Tour


As posted yesterday, we’re just back from our family’s summer vacation, and one of our favorite stops was the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum in Columbus, Ohio.

Everyone really enjoyed the Children and Comics and Little Nemo exhibits, but by far the best part was the terrific behind-the-scenes archives tour given to us by program assistant, Amy Chalmers.

I’ve taken the tour before at previous festivals, so I knew a little bit of what was in store, but with rest of the family loved learning about Bill Blackbeard‘s six truckloads of comics, seeing Milton Caniff’s creepy life mask, and being in the presence of original art from Schulz, Watterson, and more.

Here’s just a few pics from our tour:





Thanks so much, Amy, for showing us around. It was a true highlight of our entire vacation!!
