Museum of American Comic Art

Welcome! Thank you for visiting the Museum of American Comic Art!

What used to be thought of as design work for children, trash to be read once for fun and then thrown away, has become one of the finest expressions of American popular art today. Here at the Museum we work to preserve and diseminate the fine work of modern Comic Artists, and to educate the public and upcoming artists on what has become an important part of modern art.

Please enjoy your visit today as much as we enjoy providing the work for display, and be sure to stop by our Gift Shop for top quality prints of many of the works you see here, as well as many others.

On this page we display a short history of the development of the art of drawing comics in America. It starts in ernest in the early 20th century when color printing for newspapers first became widespread, and grows on its own into the amazing fantasy Fine Art that you can enjoy at our museum today.
