After being forced to leave its old home following a massive rent hike in 2015, the Cartoon Art Museum is back and better than ever in its new SoMa location. The space is dedicated to cartoon art and animation including editorial cartoons, Sunday funnies, graphic novels and moving animation. The camera used to create television’s first animation, Crusader Rabbit (1949-1951), stands sentinel over the museum’s lobby. In their bookstore, ‘zines, periodicals and coffee table books feature an eclectic mix of this versatile art form.
