Abstract

The Center for Health Communication Studies, Faculty of Communication Sciences, University of Padjadjaran produced a comic entitled "Sehat Ceria di Masa Pandemi." This comic is intended as a medium for socializing health protocols for classroom learning preparation for elementary school students in Sumedang Regency, West Java. The comic media was deliberately chosen, because it has advantages in terms of visuals and stories that are easy to understand. In this study, comics are seen as educational media which are analyzed using a qualitative narrative method from Walter R. Fisher. This study focuses on analyzing the narrative concept and narrative rationality concept in the comic. Data was collected through text and visual depictions in comics and assisted by structured interviews with the comic production team. The first result of this research is the narrative concept in the comic displayed through visual elements, stories, and dialogues between characters. Second, the narrative rationality concept in the comic already includes two principles, coherence and truth. Coherence is shown in the plot structure while the principle of truth is displayed through health protocol information that is inserted in the dialogue between characters.
