* The ''Astonishing Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' ongoing series took full four years to complete a 25-issue storyline. As a result, [[Comicbook/KittyPryde Shadowcat]] being PutOnABus was spoiled by ''Messiah Complex'': since its events couldn't take place before it, Kitty was nowhere in sight. The series is notoriously hard to fit into Marvel continuity, as it appears to take place over at most a few weeks, but the second arc is set prior to ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'' (Xavier and Comicbook/{{Magneto}} are hanging out on the ruined Genosha) and the final arc includes a dialogue reference to ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' having happened! The series was first written by Creator/JossWhedon and then Creator/WarrenEllis continued the trend. [[AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder The reason is the same]].

* Creator/KevinSmith might as well be the trope namer. Various comics series of his have been met with ridiculous delays, with Spider-Man/Black Cat having a 40 month gap between issues 3 and 4 and Daredevil/Bullseye, having been started in 2002, remaining unfinished to this day (Ten Plus Years!). In addition the second part of the Widening Gyre has yet to come out.

* The third installment of ''ComicBook/{{Phonogram}}'', "The Immaterial Girl", was pushed back to sometime in 2013 or 2014 after its initial announcement due to Kieron Gillen and Jamie [=McKelvie=]'s growing workload with Marvel. They stated that it would be released once their workloads ease up. However, they've since began making the thematic SpiritualAntithesis ''ComicBook/TheWickedAndTheDivine'', and Gillen's afterword to [=WicDiv=] #5 strongly implies that he just doesn't feel able to write ''Phonogram'' any more due to now seeing himself as a creator rather than primarily a fan.

This was either misinterpretation or trolling, though, as ''The Immaterial Girl'' was published soon afterwards in 2015-6.

* ''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'' had an ambitious schedule of doing 8 issues between May 2015 and October 2015 to kick off the ''ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel''. Things went well until issue 4 dropped in July, then the mini-series gained a ninth issue and pushed itself all the way to January 20'''''16'''''. By this time, most of the ANAD titles have already released and the only thing we don't know is how it all ended. This had the misfortune of pushing back other titles as well with ''ComicBook/SilverSurfer''[='s=] and ''[[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel Ultimate End]]''[='s=] last issues being released in ''December'', long after all of the other titles were done and over with.

* ''{{Runaways}}'' suffered from several schedule slips during Creator/JossWhedon's run on the series. This proved to be especially disastrous after Marvel decided to reboot the series with a new creative team who began working before Whedon had finished, and thus were unaware of some of the changes that Whedon made (like Xavin becoming female.) The resulting continuity issues in the new series may have been a factor in its cancellation little over a year later.

* ''ComicBook/DangerGirl'' became somewhat infamous for this near the end of the original series, with several months passing between issues. Artist J. Scott Campbell would later take it a step further, seemingly abandoning ''{{Wildsiderz}}'', and really sequential art in general, after the second issue.
