The Library of Congress has several cartoon and comics exhibits up now. Here's a quick overview.
You can buy District Comics in their gift shop in the Jefferson Building. My story on the Army Medical Museum is around page 90, wink, wink.

This artwork isn't on exhibit, but you can make an appointment to view it.
