Added DiffLines:

* DarkHorseComics has ''ComicBook/ResidentAlien'', which stars Harry Vanderspeigle, an alien stranded on Earth that takes the persona of a medical doctor. Harry is a resident alien (as in a person living in a foreign country) on Earth while literally being an extraterrestrial alien. Bonus points for how "resident" can also refer to a stage in graduate medical training.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Commando}}'' is not beyond doing this. One such example is "Czech Mate". Set during UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo, it involves a young Czech and his friends fleeing the Nazi occupation of their homeland in order to join Britain's RAF.

Added DiffLines:

* The {{Deadpool}} storyline "Enema of the State" was named in parody of the then-recent "Enemy of the State" storyline in {{Wolverine}}'s book.
* DCComics seems to like to make use of the title "Apokolips Now" (a pun on the movie ''Film/ApocalypseNow'') for stories involving Darkseid/Apokolips.
* DC also seems to like making pun-titles involving Batman's nicknames "The Bat" or "The Dark Knight" (the latter itself already a pun).
* ECComics had several particularly cringeworthy titles. Two of the worst were "Fare Tonight, with Increasing Clottyness" and "Horror We? How's Bayou?"
