US state unveils largest cartoon museum

Ohio State University's Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum exhibits nearly 300,000 original works.

    The world's biggest collection of cartoons has gone on show at a new museum in the United States. Rare comics are being treated as a serious artform.

    Now cartoonists everywhere know that they can give their collections of papers and art to Ohio State and they will be exhibited, preserved and accessible to researchers.
