* The [[PettingZooPeople people]] of ''Webcomic/{{Cloudscratcher}}'' all live on tall plateaus. The land in between is completely covered in [[spoiler:at least two layers of]] clouds, and is extremely dangerous (although it's possible to turn a big profit by going down there to scavenge wrecked aircraft).

* ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons'' has Throne, the hub of Creation, which [[http://killsixbilliondemons.com/comic/844/ floats]] in an infinite black emptiness. Oddly, there is also the {{Void|BetweenTheWorlds}} outside all of the setting's universes, but [[http://killsixbilliondemons.tumblr.com/post/152038960200/whats-outside-throne-it-kind-looks-like-theyre nobody knows]] whether it's the same thing or not.
