* Oddly enough, with all of the taboos SinCity deals with, swear words are usually [=PG-13=] rated and sparse. There has only been one F-bomb in the entire series: "Make a missing person's case out of this fucker!" when [[spoiler: The Colonel]] is killed.

* Leo Ortolani, author of ''ComicBook/{{Rat-Man}}'', gets a lot of mileage from his ability to [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar crap all over the radar]] without actually swearing, so Valker shouting "MA VUOI MORIRE, UNA CAZZO DI BUONA VOLTA?!" (translating more or less as "Will you die, this fucking time?!") as he killed [[spoiler:[[BigBad Topin]]]] in the last issue had this effect. Immediately {{Lampshaded}} when Rat-Man chastizes him for cussing in front of a teen (that just happens to be [[spoiler:Rat-Man's daughter, and thus Valker's granddaughter]], to boot) and Valker replies to let him do it because it was the last issue.

* Leo Ortolani, author of ''ComicBook/{{Rat-Man}}'', gets a lot of mileage from his ability to [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar crap all over the radar]] without actually swearing, swearing (even having a character who explicitely curses by saying actual swearwords with a letter altered), so Valker shouting "MA VUOI MORIRE, UNA CAZZO DI BUONA VOLTA?!" (translating more or less as "Will you die, this fucking time?!") time?!". "Cazzo" translates as "dick", and is basically the Italian language's general-purpose swearword) as he killed [[spoiler:[[BigBad Topin]]]] in the last issue had this effect.

Added DiffLines:

* Obligatory ''ComicBook/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' example where the characters are faster and looser with the foul language. Examples include Willow going on about the trauma caused by, "That fucking Warren Meers," Buffy calling out TheDragon over putting her through all this, "fucking shit," a Slayer guessing what's happening between Buffy and Angel says, "I think they're fucking," which leads into the next story's title, Kennedy calling out Buffy on how badly she, "fucked up," Buffy daring the reader not to, "say a fucking word" about one particular storyline, and Buffy ''again'' on realizing what's happened to her that she's, "a fucking robot."

* ComicBook/{{Alias}}, by Creator/BrianMichaelBendis was the first series of Marvel's mature readers MAX imprint, and indeed was part of why the imprint was formed. The word '''Fuck''' is the very first of the series, in the first panel, and is repeated twice again on page 1. The rest of the series is [[ClusterFBomb absolutely rife with swearing]], but the early introduction of the word is quite effective.

* Towards the end of ''ComicBook/{{Reyn}}'', a flashback reveals that Reyn once got impaled with a sword. This is his reaction:
--> '''Reyn''': "Well...'''fuck'''. Just how bad does this look?"

* During the "Fernus" [[ComicBook/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]] storyline. At its climax, Fernus, [[spoiler:aka the SuperpoweredEvilSide Martian Manhunter never knew he had]], uses his vast PsychicPowers to launch nukes all over the world. While the League desperately tries to prevent a nuclear cataclysm, Fernus makes the following observation:
--> They'll try to destroy them all. The JusticeLeagueOfAmerica knows exactly how the missiles work. When they actually arm, they'll know which missiles one must coddle and which one can simply obliterate. But somewhere in the world ''{{Superman}}'' has just uttered his first real swear word in ''years''. That has to count for something.
