** The 1970s issue "Saved By The Bell" deconstructs the CelibateCouple aspect of the characters. Betty is sexually frustrated about her relationship with Archie. She doesn't trust herself around him and even remarks "Archie's touch does weird things to my body." When they are alone at Betty's house they end up kissing but are interrupted from anything further when Jughead rings the bell.

* There a famous example from ''ArchieComics'' where one of the main characters runs through a magical hole in the wall that looks exactly like a vagina. It could have been coincidence, but...

* For years (until the late 2000s) ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' enforced a "family friendly" image to the point where they banned {{fanfiction}} because of fears of Rule34 (not that the rule stopped either). Despite this, not everything they put out is squeaky clean:

** The series has ''a lot'' of {{fanservice}} involving Betty, Veronica, and Cheryl. Almost any time they appear in swimsuits they are played up in a fanservicey manner.
** One issue of ''Betty And Veronica'' had the two discussing how perfume turned them on. Reprints censored the line.

* In the recent Muppet comics, it was revealed just how adult Floyd and Janice were. In one comic that explored the question "Just what is Gonzo?" Floyd answered with "Man, he can swing any way he wants. That's cool." In the comic spoofing Robin Hood, Janice plays a character named Willa Scarlet who is an expert on herbs.

* ''ComicBook/TheBraveAndTheBold'': Issue #197, "The Autobiography of Bruce Wayne", has an image of a shoebox that says "Pedophile", meant as a pun for a foot lover. The artist admitted it was tacky, and it was removed from the collection "The Greatest Batman Stories Ever Told".

* One of the most impressive examples of this is in ''[[SheHulk The Sensational She-Hulk]]'' graphic novel, where in one specific panel where the titular character is wearing a shredded top after getting shot at by several soldiers, and [[http://www.tradereadingorder.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/The-Sensational-She-Hulk-Getting-Lucky.jpg her nipples are clearly visible,]] barely covered by what's left of the shirt. The inker revealed that he added them in without JohnByrne's approval and that deadline crunch was most likely the reason they weren't caught.

** Another ''Donald Duck'' story titled "It's A Dog's Life" have Magica [=DeSpell=] catch wind of Scrooge planning on getting a dog to guard his money. Using that as an attempt to steal his nr. 1 dime, she transforms herself into a dog and [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall tells the camera]]: "There! You may call me a bitch now, if you like!"

* ''Tomb of Dracula'' character Hannibal King has uttered some lines that suggest that he may be gay or bisexual. When rescuing Blade from death, he said "He may hate my guts 'cause I'm a stinkin' vampire, but he's dynamite to work with." And after subduing one of Deacon Frost's minions, his threat that the guy comply or else ends with "Understand, sweetie?" One could argue that it was TheSeventies and there was quite a lot of gender bending dialogue. LukeCage also called male and female alike "Sweethart". However, in TheNineties ''TOD'' followup ''Nightstalkers'', King's response to Blade's empty threats is "Smooches! Love you too, big guy". In a 1998 Blade one shot, Blade explains in narration that he has to go get King "out of the closet". Quite a double entendre, even though we know that King was sleeping in the closet in Blade's hotel room (to avoid the sunlight of day). Interestingly enough, in ''BladeTrinity'', Ryan Reynolds plays King as quite decidedly camp.

* In the original X-Men DarkPhoenixSaga, one of the first hints you have that Phoenix was really getting off from using her enormous power was subtly slipped in by artist John Byrne. During her duel with The White Queen, judging from her chestal region, she was either really turned on or it was really cold in Chicago that night. And since they had already established a few issues earlier she didn't even feel the cold anymore, well....
