Wham! Pow! The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum houses the world’s largest collection of cartoon art (3 million pieces). This includes Dick Tracy creator Chester Gould's entire collection—more than 850 pieces of original cartoon art. This brand new, purpose-built museum space houses editorial cartoons, comic strips, comic books, graphic novels, sports cartoons and magazine cartoons. The tour will be lively, interactive and fun and will include a behind-the-scenes look in the stacks, where visitors will gain insights and historical context to this unique medium.
