* Todd [=McFarlane=] returned to write his creator-owned ''{{Spawn}}'' with #185, and wrote it until #200, after which another writer named "[[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir Will Carlton]]" took over the writing for the next 19 issues. Then [=McFarlane=] revealed that it was actually himself, and from #220 onward he was once more using his real name.
* DarkHorseComics editor Randy Stradley has written many ''StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' comics: sometimes as himself, and sometimes as either "Mick Harrison" or "Welles Hartley". The three personas would on occasion co-operate to work on the same title and even take over ongoing series from one another. Apparently, his comics would generate more fan-mail when not written by the main editor of the entire publishing line. Stradley eventually came out after too many people became aware of the secret and it was about to be leaked on the Internet anyway.

* Daniel Handler has written some rather explicit novels under his own name, and ''Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' as LemonySnicket-- although the latter also involves an elaborate LiteraryAgentHypothesis played out to some degree both in the books and in RealLife (with Handler presented as Snicket's representative).

* Creator/EdwardGorey frequently used anagrams of his name (Ogdred Weary, Dogear Wryde, Mrs. Regera Dowdy, etc.) as pseudonyms, though given his distinctive artistic style these were probably more for Gorey's amusement than actual disguise.

* Creator/StephenKing published five books as "Richard Bachman", because he wanted to see whether his success "was due to talent or luck". Some years later, he revived the Bachman name for ''Literature/TheRegulators'', an AlternateContinuity version of sorts to his simultaneously released ''Literature/{{Desperation}}''. One famous review of ''Thinner'' said that [[HilariousInHindsight "This is the kind of book Stephen King would write if he could write."]]
