Comic Collection


The Comic Art Collection has particular strength in underground comic books, graphic novels, and published reprints of classic comic strips and cartoons. Special Collections also maintains a core reference collection on comics, including price guides, encyclopedias, and scholarly publications.

The collection contains over 4,000 catalogued comic books, journals, and monographs. Special Collections also contains several related collections in the form of the personal papers and original artwork of various cartoonists (see below).


The collection is available to all researchers. Request materials for use in the Special Collections reading room.
Comic monographs and serials are catalogued in the MERLIN library catalog. Advice on using MERLIN to search Special Collections can be found here.
