Shown Their Work / Newspaper Comics

  • Garry Trudeau did this in Doonesbury, using Toggle's story to show exactly how wounded soldiers are cared for. He even tried to get permission to travel on an Air Evac.
  • Prince Valiant went back and forth on this. King Arthur is often shown in plate armor (which didn't exist at the time period), but many other elements of the time period, from geography, politics, and day-to-day life are very accurate.
  • FoxTrot is full of this regarding Computer Programming and Video Game/Nerd references. It's to be expected, as Bill Amend was a physics major and a genuine nerd.
  • Pearls Before Swine makes several references to animal characteristics.
