* In the alternate history fantasy series ''ComicBook/{{Arrowsmith}}'', the protagonist is an airman, a soldier who flies by magically transferring the flight ability of a dragonet (baby dragon) into himself. Each airman has his own dragonet companion who typically rides his shoulder, and he wears strips of skin shed by the dragonet's mother to help form a bond between them.
* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': Many sizes and colors, but mostly cosmetic differences as they're pretty much all big (human to {{kaiju}} size) reptilian flyers with fire breath (except for undead ones and negation wyrms, who breathe unlife and oblivion respectively). Most are (or at least seem) sentient, though several look like they have the intelligence of a cat or chimp more than a human one.



* The titular team in the comic ''ComicBook/SouthernKnights'' included the character Dragon, who was originally conceived of as a [[ShapeShifting person who could transform into a dragon]]. It was later decided that he was a [[HumanityEnsues dragon who could transform into a human]]. Either way, he was a good guy.
* The Dragons in ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' were originally genetically engineered by a long-extinct race called the Saurians. They come in four different flavors, Iron, Copper, Gold, and Platinum, who all look like Western Dragons with Platinums being the stand-out, having magical 'vents' instead of wings. Also hatching from dragon eggs are two sub-types, Wyrms and Drakes, who look like limbless dragons and two-legged two-winged (as opposed to the normal four-legged two-winged) dragons respectively and who get little rights in draconic society. ''All'' can turn into a human form, and all full dragons (but not wyrms or drakes) can intuitively use draconic magic which not even they understand the mechanics of, just the usage. Dragons tend to be highly intelligent, but arrogant as heck. The oldest dragon Exthilion ironically looks like an oversized Wurm with a frill, but has all the talents and magics of all the true dragon varieties.

* Belloc from ''ComicBook/{{Firebreather}}'' is a {{Kaiju}} that when he's standing up, he looks more like a human, but when he bends down he looks more like a Western Dragon.

* The Dragon that Hellboy fights [[spoiler: to the death]] in The Fury is simultaneously the OneWingedAngel form of the Witch-Goddess Nimue and the unified aspect of the 7 [[EldritchAbomination Ogdu Jahad]] destined to bring the end of the world.
* Karno's ''Here They Be Dragons'' largely follows traditional Western Dragons, save they can walk on two and four legs like Gargoyles, have [[OverlyLongName Overly Long Names,]] are just as capable of and [[GeniusBruiser knolwedgeable of]] spells right down to identifying specific curses InvisibleToNormals, the females are normally flat-chested, but [[BreastExpansion grow]] NonMammalMammaries that simply gauge their sexual arousal and ''especially'' view other species as [[PunyHumans Puny Furries]] regardless of their NoNudityTaboo and [[ObfuscatingStupidity being mistaken for simple brutes by the villagers.]] A horse-man learns all this when [[CursedWithAwesome cursed a spell that gives him a Gag Penis if someone ever touches it]] ''then'' [[NoKillLikeOverkill left as living sacrifice to the local dragon for food,]] but luckily becomes FriendsWithBenefits in a win-win deal of him having casual sex with her in exchange for all the gold he can carry and a spell to make such booty calls happen instantly by teleporting him to her.
* To become the [[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]], a candidate must face Shou Lao the Undying, an Eastern dragon with a snakelike body. The mark of Shou Lao on an Iron Fist's chest has the serpentine body of an Eastern dragon plus a Western dragon's wings.



* The dragons in ''ComicBook/{{Kairos}}'' are very humanoid, being roughly the size of a human, walking on two legs and having hands, wearing human clothes, and the female dragons have NonMammalMammaries.
* One of the guardians at the gate at Dream's castle in ''ComicBook/TheSandman'' is called Wyvern. Contrary to the usual appearance of a wyvern, the guardian is wingless and quadrupedal, with a long thin tail and neck and a bloated body, somewhat like a sauropod dinosaur (see for instance Chapter 3 of ''Season of Mists''). It's probably intentional, as the guardian on his left side (our right) is called Hippogriff but [[CallAPegasusAHippogriff is really a pegasus]].
* ''ComicBook/TheSavageDragon'' is a comic hero who actually is not a dragon at all. He simply looks kinda like one, enough that it became his name.

* The dragons in ''ComicBook/{{Bone}}'' come in a variety of shapes (for example, the Great Red Dragon has rabbit-like ears and a goatee), but they're all large, intelligent fire-breathers who want what's best for the world. And then there's Mim, the Queen of the Dragons, who is part Ouroboros, part living CosmicKeystone. She's several miles long, and capable of single-handedly causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. The dragon's culture has a high level of spiritual development and grants them further supernatural powers. The Great Red Dragon alone is telepathic, can astral-project through dreams, see the future, and communicate with the dead. Essentially, the dragons serve the role of angels, but are a mix of Western & Eastern Dragons (Fire-breathing & strength like Western ones, but [[BuffySpeak mysticalness]] of Eastern dragons.
