* Mystek of the ''[[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League Task Force]]'' was ThrownOutTheAirlock due to a tag-team combo of ExecutiveMeddling and the resulting CreatorBreakdown. [[http://lamerciepark.com/legacy/comics/taskforce.html As writer Christopher Priest explains]]:

* Creator/{{Dwayne McDuffie}}'s final ''[[ComicBook/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]]'' arc was basically a metaphor for his then-deteriorating relationship with DC Comics. Near the end of the story, most of the League's members have quit (in real life most were taken away from Dwayne due to ExecutiveMeddling) and several other members, notably ComicBook/BlackCanary, begin to question their commitment to the team and whether or not they even care enough to continue protecting the world.

* [[ComicBook/ChickTracts Jack Chick]] went through a CreatorBreakdown that, for all intents and purposes, is still going on. He suffered a stroke in '96, and his ability to draw has slowly deteriorated ever since.

** His work in Comicbook/UltimateXMen had a bit of foreshadowing to this. The book always had a cynical edge to it (even moreso than Millar's concurrent work in Comicbook/TheUltimates, which at least had BlackComedy to blunt it's sharp corners), but took a nosedive into [[CrapsackWorld [=GrimDark=]]] during the "Weapon X" story arc. To be fair, Millar was hospitalized for a debilitating illness and in chronic pain during his early tenure on the book, and he [[WordOfGod later admitted in an interview]] that he was probably projecting his own misery onto the characters.

* In-universe in ''ComicStrip/KnightsOfTheDinnerTable'': Jolly Blackburn wrote a "review" of the Gary Jackson HackMaster novel ''The Lady is a Thief''. The protagonist was based on Gary's wife Heidi, and [[CharacterDerailment becomes evil and vicious for no good reason]] at the point of the novel that was written during Gary's divorce. According to the review, the book was pulled from publication after Heidi sued for defamation, and only a few stray copies remain in circulation.

* After the death of Creator/JephLoeb's son, Sam, there was a notable change in the theme and mood of Loeb's comics writing. He used one of his scripts and created "Sam story" comics for ComicBook/SupermanBatman, and then retired from comics. Later his friends at Marvel convinced Loeb to return to the industry and work for Marvel. Since then Loeb wrote a mini-series about how several characters mourn Sam's death through the proxy that is ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, dropped a steaming load of controversial plot onto the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk series, and tore through the [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate universe]] with [[KillEmAll Tomino-like]] reckless abandon. (It takes a Wikipedia page to list all of the characters that died in his ComicBook/{{Ultimatum}} limited series) Losing a son is never easy...

* When PeterDavid started writing ''Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk'', he promised that he wouldn't kill off Betty Ross, Hulk's long-time love interest, partly because the character was one of his wife's favorites. Years later, he and his wife went through a painful divorce. Not long after ''that'', Betty Ross met a rather painful end in the comics. David has since come out and admitted that the strip was more than a little influenced by his real-life circumstances and, had things happened differently (not limited to the fact that he was soon taken off the book), he would have let Betty live.

* ''Adventures of Barry Ween'' creator Creator/JuddWinick wrote a touching graphic novel about his friendship with fellow ''MTV's Real World'' co-star Pedro Zamora and Pedro's eventual death, ''Pedro And Me''. Since then, much of Winick's work - particular at DCComics - has consisted of [[VerySpecialEpisode Very Special Issues]] involving HIV and homosexuality.
