* In the ComicBook/XMen comics as a whole, this happened to the character of SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}}: First, he was just a former friend who did a FaceHeelTurn and believed in [[FantasticRacism Mutant Superiority]]. Then, his backstory, especially his being a Holocaust Survivor is developed in depth and he goes from re-occurring BigBad to [[AntiVillain Anti-Villain]] who is acting preemptively because he believes that it's just a matter of time until [[HumansAreBastards mutants are rounded up into Death Camps.]]

* ''ComicBook/{{Bone}}'' does this intentionally. Over its 14-year run, it went from a cute, kid-friendly comic about sudden snowfalls, greedy relatives and stupid, stupid rat creatures to an epic fantasy saga about a rather horrific SealedEvilInACan with graphic violence and death, the threat of genocide, a ReligionOfEvil, and the aforementioned rat creatures going from harmless comic relief to a deadly threat (except for ThoseTwoBadGuys among them, who remain comedic.) However, it still managed to kick in humor every now and then, with at least one funny moment every issue. Jeff Smith apparently did this so that audiences wouldn't be "committed to an epic tale right from the start."

* This happened to ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade'', of all things. The first four issues are mostly light-hearted, but the last two reveal that [[spoiler:Mister Myxyzptlk]] has been behind everything, and may even have [[spoiler:gone back in time and ''destroyed Krypton in the first place'']] just to make sure he got everyone where he wanted them.

* ''ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'': When the series were taken over by Tabary after Goscinny's death; while the stories remained mostly comical, they started having more coherent adventures with Iznogoud occasionally switching from VillainProtagonist to AntiHero.

* The Italian demential/slapstick comic book series ''ComicBook/{{Rat-Man}}'' by Leonardo Ortolani: it started as a AffectionateParody of Marvel and DC superheroes, but after the first 10 issues, it started to develop darker and edgier stories.

** That's not even getting into ComicBook/OneMoreDay in which Spiderman makes a [[DealWithTheDevil deal with Mephisto]] to [[ResetButton undo his marriage with Mary-Jane in return to save Aunt May's life.]] [[TheyjustDidntCare A bullet wound that not even the greatest scientists or Doctors (even with magical or alien technology) in the entire Marvel Universe could heal]].

** [[UsefulNotes/BronzeAge|OfComicbooks]] was also less silly than the Silver Age, especially for DC. Topics like drug addiction, racism, and other social issues were addressed.

* Matt Fraction's ''ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}'' managed to do this in ''one panel''. First issue was sorta-slice-of-life, before delving into Hawkeye and his interactions with his neighbours, him trying to mentor [[HyperCompetentSidekick Kate Bishop]], and deal with some local criminals trying to operate in the area, with him comically repeatedly running into trouble and having to deal with it via quick wits and his impressive skills. After an issue of Clint dealing with the women in his life, including a messy breakup with his not-quite-girlfriend SpiderWoman, he talks to Grills before heading downstairs [[spoiler: then Grills gets shot and killed by 'the Clown',]] with Matt Fraction confirming the series is now going to get darker.
