About 1,000 cartoon-related items have been added to the Oklahoma Cartoonists Collection, which is located in the Toy and Action Figure Museum, Pauls Valley, Okla.
The items include the work of Dan Piraro (“Bizarro”/King Features Syndicate), editorial cartoonist Doug Marlette (Tulsa World/Tribune Media Services), Jack and Carole Bender (“Alley Oop”/United Media), the late editorial cartoonist Bill Mauldin, the late Al Capp (“L’il Abner”), the late Zack Mosley (“Buck Rogers”), and others.
Most of the materials were donated by former university librarian Jon Suter and Tulsa comic strip/book writer Michael Vance, according to a story in today’s Joplin (Mo.) Independent.
