** ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'' had its own comic book tie-in.



** EDC once had a comic based around a Bruce Timm-inspired animated world with its own version of Superman, Justice League, etc. This was before [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Superman]] or ''Justice League Unlimited'' but seemingly taking place in the world of WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries. So it was a comic series based on a cartoon that would later have its own [[Franchise/{{DCAU}} cartoon equivalent]].
