Comic Art Collection
The Comic Art Collection holds over 200,000 items. Most of these items are American comic books, but also included are over 1,000 books of collected newspaper comic strips, nearly 45,000 foreign comic books, and several thousand books and periodicals about comics. Although some archival materials are held, the focus of the collection is on published work, in an effort to present a complete picture of what the American comics readership has seen, especially since the middle of the twentieth century.
