* Warren Publishing's 1960s horror comics such as ''Magazine/CreepyMagazine'', ''Eerie Magazine,'' and ''ComicBook/{{Vampirella}}'' were spiritual successors to the horror comics produced by Creator/ECComics in the late '40s and early '50s like ''Tales From the Crypt'' and ''The Haunt of Fear''. The [=EC=] comics had vanished in 1954 due to UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode banning all violent imagery and macabre themes from comic books; Warren exploited a loophole by publishing its comics in magazine size (10.5" x 8.5", as opposed to 10.25" x 7" like a regular comic) in order to feature mature content while the Code was still in effect.

* Creator/{{Christopher Priest|Comics}}'s ''Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}}'' run is a tonal and stylistic successor to his seminal ''Comicbook/BlackPanther'' run. It could best be described as "Black Panther [[XMeetsY if]] it had a VillainProtagonist."

* PeterDavid's ''Comicbook/FallenAngel'' is one for his ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' run, so much so that the heroine was initially hinted to be Linda Danvers (Supergirl's civilian identity) under an assumed name. This connection was abandoned when the series changed publishers.

** Worth noting that [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally it was supposed to]] be successor to [[XForce X-Statix]]. While the plans changed, the influence is still there.

* ''ComicBook/SuskeEnWiske'': In terms of commercial success, comedy and word play ''ComicStrip/DeKiekeboes'' is probably the closest.

* When comparing the initial premises, you can see that second volume of ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers'' is one for ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' - in both we have group of superpowered teenagers on the run, who cannot count on help from their parents (in Runaways because [[spoiler: their parents are the bad guys]] and in Young Avengers because [[spoiler: TheBigBad can easily mind control adults to kill them]]) and both series explore relationships between kids in their late teens. Also, in both groups one of the kids [[spoiler: is secretly evil]].
