This study assessed the influence of gender and trait hostility on perceptions of extremely-violent and mildly-violent comic books. Participants rated comic books on a variety of factors, including levels of violence and humor. Gender, but not trait hostility, was significantly related to the comic book ratings. The methodological and psychological implications of these findings are discussed.
