* LifeInHell occasionally uses these to an extreme. Matt Groening refers to these as "all those Akbar and Jeff strips where they stare at each other." Keep in mind there were often dozens of panels to a page.

** A comic strip by DavidLynch was almost entirely made up of beat panels. The [[CutAndPasteComic same ones]]. For ten years.
* ''ComicStrip/LifeInHell'' was the first comic to truly make it into an art form, almost always involving Ackbar and Jeff.

* Interestingly, ''TheFarSide'' occasionally pulled this off in a one-panel strip. The visual was some awkward situation, while the punchline came in the caption.

* During the Creator/JossWhedon run on ''[[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Astonishing X-Men]]'', the morning after Peter Rasputin and Kitty Pryde [[TheyDo finally make love]], they meet with Wolverine in the kitchen. Two beat panels follow; one where Wolverine looks at Peter, and one where he looks at Kitty. He then returns to his breakfast, muttering, "'Bout time."

* Pretty much every comic has used this at some point. It's been around since the early days of comics, but it really took off in the 60's and 70's, when a new generation of cartoonists raised on films and television sought to make their comics more cinematic. {{Doonesbury}} is often credited with popularizing the beat, and it remains one of the most frequent users of this trope.

* Creator/BrianMichaelBendis is fond of using beat panels. One example in ''Invincible Iron Man'' has Tony Stark holding out his hand for Doctor Strange to high-five him for four panels before the Sorcerer Supreme reluctantly gives in, prompting Stark to shout "Awesome facial hair bros" to Strange's dismay.

* Creator/ChristopherPriestComics might well be the TropeCodifier. QuantumAndWoody, Comicbook/BlackPanther, and pretty much everything else he wrote were rife with beat panels. The impressive thing was that as often as he used them, they never got stale or overdone; he knew exactly when and where to use them.
