Original Drawings From Marmaduke Comic Strips Now Residing at Ohio State’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum
The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum has acquired more than 16,000 Marmaduke cartoons from 1954 to 2010. The cartoons are part of a collection that includes strip’s creator Brad Anderson’s original art, correspondence, fan mail, memorabilia and more.
The library is working to catalog and digitize the collection — a process that could take a year or more, [curator Jenny] Robb said. Once that is complete, she said, the museum might display some of the work in a gallery.
In the meantime, Robb said, the public, upon request, can view any part of the collection in the library’s reading room. Some of it is already available as part of the Billy Ireland’s digital collection.
