* ''StringsofFate'' was a fantastic little webcomic by Jen Wang (artist of ''Koko Be Good'') featuring the EasternZodiac and TheFourGods (and then some) which was unfortunately abandoned just as things were getting exciting in the sequel. And then the archives went down. If you dig around, you can find zip files of it a couple of chapters into the sequel, though.

* Another UnCancelled example is ''Webcomic/DungeonsAndDenizens'', which was on hiatus for more than a year, with just a few forum posts as indications of life. Then the series returned and kept a fairly regular schedule for a while, before Real Life again interfered and the updates schedule became ''very'' irregular. The comic ended, AndTheAdvenureContinues style, in 2014.

** Update: The original ''Dreamwalk Journal'' site went offline, but not before Kline and Danielle began a series of spinoff stories, eventually titled ''Nightshade the Merry Widow''. They have also announced that the original series will be rehomed and eventually continued. As of mid-August 2012 the powers that be have not decided whether or not ''Nightshade's'' sexual content render it unsafe for a TVTropes article.

* ''The N-Fans'' is an unfortunate blend of both this trope ''and'' AuthorExistenceFailure. The comic was about the original creator and illustrator, Webster Swenson, and several of his friends going into the world of video games a la ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster''. Sadly, Webster passed away unexpectedly in 2007 due to complications from diabetes. His friends who inspired the other characters made a few attempts to keep the website alive and continue the comic, but to no avail; the site has stagnated since 2008.

* ''Cosmobear'' was a project by Clay Yount while he was still initially working on ''RobAndElliot''. Due to the commitment required for two strips, he even dropped ''RobAndElliot'' down to one day a week to manage both strips. However, ''Cosmobear'' rather quickly fell into a non-updating hole in which weeks and months would go between strips. An update in June 2008 promised "Updates next Friday" for ''years'', before the site was quietly killed and the comic vanished. All the while, ''RobAndElliot'' became a victim of ScheduleSlip before it actually got a simple conclusion.

In 2012 the comic was rebooted on [[http://blacktapestries.com/ its own site]], but only 3 pages were posted in 6 months. In winter of 2014 the author decided to [[UnCancelled continue the original incarnation]] despite inconsistencies that kept accumulating as explained [[http://blacktapestries.comicgenesis.com/d/20140210.html here]]. As of May 2014 she managed to update 2-4 times per month.

* The last strip of ''Powerup Adventure'', a {{Spinoff}} of ''PowerupComics'', is from July 30, 2008, with the author's comment saying he's excited about what's coming up. Given that the original was a StealthParody, this was probably done intentionally as a parody of this trope.
