The appearance of health-related topics in selected comic strips, how often they appeared, and in which comic strips health-related topics appeared most often were examined in this study. Sunday comic strips from the 1956, 1968, 1972, and 1980 editions of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat and St. Louis Post-Dispatch comprised the study data base. Data recorded from the comic strips included name of strip, author, frequency and percentage of health-related categories, comic strip type, demographics of comic strip characters, and setting and situation of health-related topics. A total of 9,871 comic strips was analyzed. The Illness, Gender Roles, and Safety categories contained the most comic strips with health-related topics. Male characters appeared twice as often as females. Adults appeared more often than teens and children; the home was the most common setting.
