* ''"Help, God! The light has got ComicBook/{{Cerebus}}!"'' To elaborate: In the final issue, Cerebus dies alone, unmourned, and unloved, just as The Judge had predicted, and left the world undoubtedly a worse place through his actions. After seeing almost every important character in what appears to be the light of Heaven, and especially his three favorite people (Bear, Jaka, and [[Creator/ErnestHemingway Ham Ernestway]]), he begins to ascend into the light. However, when he notices the absence of Rick, he suddenly suspects that the Light is actually the YHWH, the opposite of God. He tries to escape, and futilely calls to god to save him, but is ultimately dragged screaming in to the light and disappears.

* ''ComicBook/SecretSix'' ends with the entire team being taken down by an army of superheroes during their epic LastStand. Deadshot and King Shark would later appear in ''SuicideSquad'', but the fates of their teammates are (likely deliberately) left unstated, though everyone appears to at least be alive when last seen. This was the result of a ContinuityReboot of the whole DC Universe, and conversely, the fact that it even ''got'' an ending should be considered upbeat and a testament to the series's fanbase.

* ''ComicBook/KhaalTheChroniclesOfAGalacticEmperor'' ends with [[TheBadGuyWins the bad guy winning]] in the most depressing fashion, in this case its the eponymous VillainProtagonist getting everything he wants and then some. [[GalacticConqueror Khaal]] gains ultimate power, uncontested control and gets all his rivals killed by the end. He subjects his two brothers (the most sympathetic characters in the comic) to AFateWorseThanDeath to ensure his continued survival as their lifeforce is tied to his own meaning if they die, so does him. Khaal then [[TakeOverTheWorld invades planet Earth and and successfully conquers it]], becoming a GodEmperor.

* The stories in ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' usually end badly, or at least [[BittersweetEnding bittersweet]], the AlternateReality created ForWantOfANail showing that, as much as it a Marvel hero's life can downright ''suck'' sometimes, it ''could'' have been much worse.

Eventually, they manage to track down the man who purchased the daughter, only to learn he has eaten her. And then Dass Jennir the Jedi of all people kills him on the spot, alienating Bomo who would have preferred avenging her death himself.

* There were very few truly happy endings in ''ComicBook/{{Misty}}''. Usually, the best anyone could hope for was a BittersweetEnding.
