Abstract:Comic books can potentially be a useful tool for education in public health crisis, especially in areas with high rates of illiteracy. This research presents the results of a quantitative survey of public health comics, from the 1940's to the present. The data shows how the form and function of these comics has changed. The results show that one of the top challenges to public health professionals interested in using comic books to solve a health crisis in in locating them, as a significant amount of this material is produced and distributed in channels outside of traditional archiving and cataloging.
