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.

    Al Jazeera's John Hendren reports from Ohio.
