* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' is quite notable in the sense that each story arc is a self-contained story in an overarching continuity, which helps prevent ContinuityLockout in this rather [[LongRunner lengthy]] series. The arcs are: Phantom Blood (5 volumes; 9 episodes), Battle Tendency (8 volumes; 17 episodes), Stardust Crusaders (17 volumes; 48 episodes), Diamond is Unbreakable (19 volumes; anime currently ongoing, 39 episodes and an OVA planned), Vento Aureo (17 volumes), Stone Ocean (17 volumes), Steel Ball Run (24 volumes, currently the longest in the series), and [=JoJolion=] (ongoing).

* Each series in ''Literature/WarriorCats'' is its own story arc that contributes to the overall MythArc (although series 3+4 were really one long arc, and series 5 was a prequel): the first series followed Firestar's rise to leadership and defeat of villain Tigerstar, the second series was about the forest's destruction and the Clans finding a new home, as well as Hawkfrost's attempt at following in Tigerstar's pawsteps, the third and fourth series dealt with three cats discovering that they have special powers and the [[{{Hell}} Dark Forest]]'s attempt to destroy the Clans, and the sixth series is about the discovery of the modern remnants of [=SkyClan=].

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' stories generally come in two different modes. The one-shot comics are "Day in the life" stuff and are generally more [[BlackComedy darkly comedic]] in tone, with Dredd often showing him much of a zero-tolerance asshole he can be. The so-called Mega-Epics are huge story lines that generally last about half a year to a year, are more serious in tone and tend to make several changes to the status quo.

** Season 20 is an attack on the NostalgiaFilter trope and presents the destructive effects of unchecked nostalgia (referencing both and the backwards-facing fervor that fueled Donald Trump's presidential campaign and [[CreativeSterility overabundance of sequels and reboots]] in TheNewTens).
