* British comic strip ''School Belle'', which was part of the ''Buster'' weekly, had one story where the titular Belle was playing snooker. The boys at the club start taking bets on colours, which Belle takes to be which ball she hits first. Too late, she realises that they're actually waiting for her to bend over [[MaleGaze so they can see what colour her underwear is]].

* ''ComicBook/{{Superlopez}}'': The cubifier gun from ''Los Alienígenas'', a weapon that turns its target into [[http://blogs.elpais.com/.a/6a00d8341bfb1653ef01a3fcfb8cc9970b-320wi a pile of little cubes.]] Harmless enough... except that there's no known way to revert its effects, making the target [[FridgeHorror as good as dead.]]
** Carapincho DOES reappear after being cubified, and to become a series regular, no less. Although he's admittedly rendered unable to say anything else other than grunts...

** That's nothing. Blatant bondage scenes on the ''cover'' have been known to slip past the [[UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode Comics Code Authority]] in the ''Silver Age''.

* And then there's [[http://www.superdickery.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=30%3Aframes-and-panels-index&id=808%3Ajimmy-rides-a-giant-hot-dog-i-dont-get-it-either&Itemid=38 this]], which appears to date from the age of UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode...
** Wait, does that mean you can figure that one out? Then please, tell the rest of us. We're so confused! (Maybe "A stud with a big weiner"?) (It's "horse wiener".)
*** "I could eat a hotdog the size of a horse"? Others include [[spoiler: "I want a wiener so big I could ride it"]] and [[spoiler: "I wanna ride a giant wiener." Or more likely "I want a wiener like a horse."]]
** [[spoiler: It's actually: "I'm so hungry I could eat a wiener the size of a horse!", [[LiteralGenie carefully misheard.]] Still doesn't make it better.]]

* ''ComicBook/PS238'' has the school's janitor/super tech genius install a chip in a ranting kid's brain that replaces curse words with random non-curse words, and "entire tirades of profanity with showtunes" "Mostly written by Rogers and Hammerstein" [[http://nodwick.humor.gamespy.com/ps238/comics/index.php?date=2006-12-31 see it to believe it]]

* Though most often booed for their horrible puns, the host-characters of horror comics like ''TalesFromTheCrypt'' or ''ComicBook/HouseOfMystery'' often threw in a DoubleEntendre during various stories' introductions and denouments. Having previously been driven underground by UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode, graphic writers of horror tend to see GettingCrapPastTheRadar as a badge of honor, if not a moral duty. The Cryptkeeper from the televised ''Tales From The Crypt'' continued this envelope--pushing tradition, with punning references to bondage, masturbation, S&M and the like, taking full advantage of the looser standards applied to pay cable programming.

** 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.
