* Before writing the ''ComicBook/MegaMan'' comic, Ian Flynn heavily researched the series, and it shows. [[http://megaman.wikia.com/wiki/Chest,_Plum_and_Ripot Chest, Plum, and Ripot]] from the obscure MascotRacer ''Battle & Chase'' appear in the first issue reporting on Light's new robots, that issue's ''Short Circuits'' has a MythologyGag to both the [[WesternAnimation/MegaMan cartoon]] and the hilariously bad American box art of the first game, and Fire Man retains his Southern accent from ''MegaManPoweredUp''.

*** Nicholas Fury describes his organization as England's "shield", a reference to his "S.H.I.E.L.D." organization in the regular comics. However, he also mentions that [[{{Spider-Man}} Peter Parquagh's]] parents used to work for him.

* ''Clan Apis''. Is a educational work that happens to also tell an interesting story. Jay Hosler is an entomologist/biologist and writes his works with education as the main point... though that's not to say that his works don't have a good narrative push. Another example of this is Optical Allusions and... well... you can tell by the title that he's done the research.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Superlopez}}'': The comic's cartoony style is combined with an astoundingly realistic attention to detail: if you want to know what a typical Spanish city looked like during TheEighties, you need only look at a Superlopez story of the period.

* LarryHama is a Vietnam veteran, military expert, and Japanophile. This is apparent in the level of detail that appears whenever he writes a comic book dealing with those topics, such as ''[[ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel G.I. Joe]]'' and ''ComicBook/NthManTheUltimateNinja''.

* Anything Pat Mills has written. So much so that the reason he quit writing ''[[ComicBook/{{Battle}} Charley's War]]'' was due to a dispute over his research budget.

* ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' couldn't possibly have been made without the most intimate understanding of every facet of the {{DCU}}.
** Creator/MarkWaid, the man who wrote it, is known as "the living, breathing DC encyclopedia" due to the insane amount of knowledge he has on TheDCU; to the point where DC sometimes holds "stump Mark Waid" contests at conventions just to find out what he ''doesn't'' know.

* Following the CosmicRetcon of ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'', the writers needed to quickly refill the cast with new characters to replace the ones that had been written out - basically, any that hadn't been created by either Sega or [=DiC=]. To do this, instead of creating an entirely supporting cast on short notice, they decided to look to the more obscure bits of Sonic's history for inspiration, ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' in particular. This resulted in re-imaginings of such characters as Breezie the Hedgehog, Wes Weaselly, and even Professor Von Schlammer from "Boogie Mania" (the "pingas" episode).

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Three}}'': Kieron Gillen did a lot of research into Spartan society to get the details right according to the most recent academic literature on the topic.
