* MarvelComics published an adaptation of the original ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}} '' TV movie, and then (unusually for most comics based on TV series) went on to adapt some of the early episodes as well before branching into original stories (the comic ran for nearly two years, outliving the TV series). Dynamite Comics later published comics based on the classic series alongside its adaptations of the remake.

* Writer/artist Benimaru Itoh made an [[ComicStrip/StarFox official comic]] based on the original ''VideoGame/StarFox'' game than ran in ''Magazine/NintendoPower'' for several issues. It was released before the game was available anywhere in the world, making it the first introduction to the Lylat System, ever. It follows the game's plot exactly, even going so far as using the hidden elements in the game as plot devices, and introduced many elements that were later altered and used in the franchise reboot, ''Videogame/StarFox64''.

* Throughout the full span of its run, Franchise/{{BIONICLE}} was accompanied by a comic series published by Creator/DCComics. It was initially virtually the sole storytelling source for the series, and arguably remained the primary one throughout its run. Its successor line, ''HeroFactory'', also has one; however, its distribution is limited to LEGO's magazine and the internet, instead of being a standalone comic book. Other Franchise/{{LEGO}} lines have received smaller, lower-key comic adaptations on occasion as well, such as ''Toys/LEGOExoForce''.

* In addition to the above, it should be noted that the now-defunct publishers Creator/DellComics, Creator/GoldKeyComics, and Creator/CharltonComics published dozens upon dozens of comic books based upon TV series of the day, from westerns and sci-fi, to straight dramas. Some, like Gold Key's version of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'', ran for decades ''after'' the original series ended. Many others ran for only one or two issues. One of the best examples of "keeping it alive" was a comic based upon a short-lived Creator/BorisKarloff series entitled ''Thriller''. After the series was cancelled after one season, Gold Key, rather than cancelling the comic book version, renamed it ''Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery'' and kept it going for 20 years after the series ended and more than 10 years after Karloff himself died.

* There have been a number of attempts to create comics based on ''Franchise/PowerRangers''. Gladstone did two mini-series based off of season 2. Marvel did an adaptation of ''Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie'' along with two series based off of season 3, one of them with back-up stories featuring ''Series/VRTroopers''. Image attempted to do one for ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'', but it ended up ceasing after its first issue. Acclaim Comics released a few comics based on ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'', including a crossover with the Beetleborgs. TokyoPop did a series of ''Cine-Manga'' for ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'' and ''Magazine/DisneyAdventures'' did a series of comics based off of ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' With the exception of the movie and the SPD series, they were all Type 2s.

* In a recursive example ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' (itself based on the comic book ''ComicBook/GreenArrow'') has a comic book adaptation published by DCComics (the same company that publishes ''Comicbook/GreenArrow''). The comic fills in parts of the backstory, and deals with what happens between episodes of the TV series. The ''[[Series/TheFlash2014 Flash]]'' adaptation comic starts ''before'' the series, as "[[EpisodeZeroTheBeginning Season Zero]]" (the ''Arrow'' comics are "Season x.5").

** ''ComicBook/ROMSpaceKnight'' was another adaptation by Bill Mantlo, this time based on a ''single action figure'' rather than a full toy line. Like ''Micronauts'', [=ROM=] was also a part of the Marvel Universe. While this license has also expired, the only thing they can't use is Rom himself - specifically, his name and Spaceknight body. But, since Rom retired at the end of his series and returned to [[HumanAlien human]] form, he's made a few unnamed cameos.

*** The ''Transformers'' comic license has gone through several companies since, as well as various manga adaptations in Japan (though those are usually closely tied to their related anime series). Dreamwave revived the ''[[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 Generation 1]]'' franchise and provided its own adaptation of the Anime/UnicronTrilogy, at least until the company went bankrupt. Creator/IDWPublishing has had the license since 2007, creating its own G1 universe, as well as tie-ins to the [[Film/{{Transformers}} live-action film series]] and [[Franchise/TransformersAlignedUniverse Aligned Universe]]. Fun Publications, meanwhile, produces comics based on the Collector's Club and [[FanConvention BotCon]] exclusive toys, and have published ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' and ''WesternAnimation/BeastMachines'' stories as well.

* Due to the [[LongRunner long-running status]] of ''Comicbook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'', it is the only thing left that tries to keep the Western continuity (Robotnik, Mobius, etc.) It was originally a spin-off inspired by the [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM Saturday morning TV show's]] proposal.
