* Murata's adaptaion of ''Webcomic/OnePunchMan'' occasionally spends entire chapters' worth of gorgeously detailed pages on single events, for example Sonic {{flash step}}ping around Saitama in the forest, Metal Knight arriving in Z-City (this one is in colour to boot!) or the whole training battle between Genos and Saitama. Fans have taken to putting the panels into animated gifs and the end results look no worse than the actual anime adaptation of the comic.

Added DiffLines:

* Jim Steranko's run on the ComicBook/NickFury section of ''Strange Tales'' occurred during a time when comics typically were one-shot or two-part stories. His Yellow Claw Saga was ran for ''nine issues.''

to:

* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' comics published by Creator/MarvelComics since 2015 can run into this, by virtue of trying to evoke the grand, cinematic feeling of the films. Entire pages are often dedicated to ships floating through space, people running down halls, and Darth Vader standing around looking cool.

to:

* Some of the Franchise/{{Godzilla}} comics published by IDW are hit by this problem badly, particularly ''ComicBook/GodzillaKingdomOfMonsters'' and ''Godzilla: Oblivion'', both of which make use of very frequent (and rarely necessary) splash and double-splash pages, enormous panels containing nothing but character closeups and one-word speech bubbles, and pages dominated by huge patches of literal white space.

When used well, decompression is a useful tool that can not only give artists a chance to stretch their wings but also alter the pace of the issue in order to tell the story more successfully. Of course, like any tool it can be used poorly. Some writers (including, arguably, Ellis himself in later years) used it to pad out thin plots or to blindly mimic then-fashionable trends. Such writers were often accused of WritingForTheTrade.

WritingForTheTrade. Ellis would respond to that by writing several comics that are decompressed, but still manage to wrap up every story in one issue, thus proving that you can write in this style without writing for the trade.

** The most annoying example would be Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}}'s ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion'', wherein a few hours of comic-book time were stretched out over almost a ''year''.
