Captions have been used in the comics medium to convey narration, description, and setting. It has become a recent trend in Western comics, starting from approximately the DarkAge, to represent characters' thoughts with captions as opposed to {{thought bubble}}s, a comic-book equivalent of the cinematic technique of first-person narrative voice-over.

* In ''BoosterGold'' it goes a little further than just different color and font, showing a little symbol in the caption to let you know who it is. Rip Hunter's thought captions are red with a green infinity symbol while BoosterGold is yellow with a blue star.

* A rare lampshading occurs in ''AmbushBug: Year None'' where Ambush Bug mourns the loss of thought bubbles as opposed to thought captions. In one scene he wakes up to discover his thoughts are in balloons again and there is third-person omniscient narration in the captions and suspects he's in the past.
