* ''[[Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures DMFA]]'' has the Demonology 101 pages, which give details about Furrae and its races (some of which aren't even ''mentioned'' in the actual comic). In the Hybrid Genetics 101 pages, the creator's assistant, [[SnarkyNonHumanSidekick Fluffy]], expresses disdain for giving so much information about stuff who will probably never make to the comic.

* While not strictly essential, you'll have a much clearer idea about what is going on in ''SailorSun'' if you read the supplementary sections of the website. In particular the FanFic section which is where the story started.

* ''{{Webcomic/Sire}}'' uses vote incentives for those who click the Topwebcomics link. These feature profiles of the characters and have informed of who the Sire/Dam of certain characters are before being revealed in the comic. Some of these profiles are still available on the author's DeviantArt page. The biggest pieces of information given so far are that Johanna is the Mrs. Lovett-Child and that Emile's inherited skill from Jarvert is ImprobableAimingSkills.

* ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'' If you really want to understand how the [[CelestialBureaucracy Celestial Depository]] works and the effects of reversing the [[RetGone misfile]], and find out just how Tempest has such a cool mountain racetrack you need to have read the "about" section on the website, read the [[FourthWallMailSlot Ask Ash column]], and ordered the print books so you could read the liner notes.

* A decent amount of the ''{{Lackadaisy}}'' characters' backstories, quirks and previous relationships are explained through the [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/characters.php character page]] and by the author herself [[http://lackadaisycats.tumblr.com/ answering reader questions.]]

* ''SupernormalStep'' has all the main characters' full names, heights, weights, etc. revealed in the author's reference sheets.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has a couple of prequel books that explain a few of the more obscure points in the story. The first book, ''On the Origin of [=PCs=]'', details what the various characters were doing before they all met, and other details, such as where the name "Order of the Stick" comes from ([[spoiler:because there's a stick on the ground]]). The second prequel book, ''StartOfDarkness'' (which is the TropeNamer, incidentally), gives a lot of exposition on the villains of the story, such as why Redcloak despises the paladins so very much, or how they met the Monster in the Darkness.

* Inversion: Early on, ''{{Erfworld}}'' inserts explanatory material from Parson Gotti's website ''between its conventional story pages''. "Parson's Klog" functions identically to the supplemental online sources that other users of this trope provide, giving needed information about the rules of the game-cum-world Parson finds himself trapped in ... except, in this case, it only ''looks'' like a separate web source. In short, this time The Manual Is All In There.
* ''SamuraiPrincess'' has some smaller info like character ages that are not mentioned in story on the cast page.

* ''FetchQuestSagaOfTheTwelveArtifacts'' has the Historical Codex of Bideogamu, which has enough information to understand the plot in a more in-depth point of view. One should read it to see why, for instance, demons are AlwaysChaoticEvil in this world.

* [[AMagicalRoommate Emily Martha Sorenson]] provides a running commentary alongside the strip, which explores character's psyches, the cultures of various races, and some incidents from her own life in any sort of way. A straighter example of this would be the forum, where fans often point out possibilities and she either [[WordOfGod expands on them,]] [[AscendedFanon agrees with them,]] or [[{{Jossed}} josses them.]]

* The about page for {{Shadownova}} shows several characters' full names and other extra details about them. It also reveals several plot points which the actual storyline (It's still fairly new) [[FirstEpisodeSpoiler hasn't addressed yet.]]
* ''ATaleOfFiction'' makes use of one of the characters' laptops as an in-universe depository of lore, maps and other data relevant to the story, as well as another in-universe webcomic and blog. More content is added as the characters restore more of the damaged hard drive or stumble across new websites.
* Due to the [[SpeakingSimlish lack]] of [[RebusBubble text]] in ''{{Fite}}'', most of the characters' names are only on the Cast Page.

* The KevinAndKell =FAQ= answers many questions about the comics, including about a few developments that occurred before the strip began, such as Rudy taking on his mother's last name on her suggestion after his father died.
* One of the authors of ''ComicShorts'' has set up a [[http://comicshorts.wikia.com/wiki/Comic_Shorts_Wiki Wiki]] to keep track of background story details as it gets expanded on. Most of the information on it has yet to be brought up any of the comics.
* The history of the Blackridge family (as well as the roots of their feud with the Cunninghams) in TruLifeAdventures were provided in a posting to the strip's MessageBoard. Said message did not survive the transition to a different board platform.
* ''QuestionableContent'' author Jeph Jacques has constantly put in bits and pieces about how the AI's in the comic ([=AnthroPC's=], etc.) function, and after 8 years, finally gave a full rundown in the commentary section of [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1996 this comic.]]
* ''AdventureDennis'' has its final chapter devoted to an "information booklet" that reveals some information about the story and specifically acts like an old game manual.
* MaggotBoy has a [[http://maggot-boy.com/extra.html written version]] that goes into a lot more detail than the comic. Sketches on the artist's deviantart page also give information on some of the characters before the events of the comic.
* Webcomic/UniversalCompass has a lot of this in the comments below the webcomic page due to the complexity of the plot.
