Some well known comics in the comics page is Garfield, The very first superman comics, and classics such as peanuts. The comic page was also used occasionally used to spread propaganda such as Korea My Home
Many issues such as sex, narcotics and terrorism cannot or can very rarely be openly discussed in strips, although there are exceptions, usually for satire, as in Bloom County. This led some cartoonists to resort to double entendre or dialogue children do not understand, as in Greg Evans' Luann. Young cartoonists have claimed commonplace words, images and issues should be allowed in the comics. Some of the taboo words and topics are mentioned daily on television and other forms of visual media. Web comics and comics distributed primarily to college newspapers are much freer in this respect.
Violence on the comics page is generally kept to a fantasy level. While black eyes and bandages covering wounds can be shown, the shedding of blood itself is prohibited in North American comic strips. Only the aftermath of spousal abuse is shown; the violent act itself is never shown on the comics pages. Most comics are episodic; with each storyline lasting for 3-5 days before being dropped in favor of a new storyline.
