* Comics written by Allan Heinberg tended to be ''horribly'' delayed.

* Creator/JonFavreau's ''Comicbook/IronMan: Viva Las Vegas'' series began around the time the first ''Film/{{Iron Man|1}}'' movie came back in 2008. As of 2015, it still isn't finished.

* ''Creator/SergioAragones Funnies'' had a 17-month gap between issues 7 (January 2012) and 8 (June 2013). This was due to Sergio Aragones needing an operation, which set everything back. Also for said health reasons, when it came back from the hiatus, the publisher switched the release schedule from monthly to bimonthly.

* 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.
