Sobolev orthogonal polynomials with respect to measures supported on compact subsets of the complex plane are considered. For a wide class of such Sobolev orthogonal polynomials, it is proved that their zeros are contained in a compact subset of the complex plane and their asymptotic-zero distribution is studied. We also find the nth-root asymptotic behavior of the corresponding sequence of Sobolev orthogonal polynomials.
