* 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 the magazine size (10.5" x 8.5", as opposed to 10.25" x 7" like a regular comic) in order to publish the same sort of material while the Code was still in effect.

* 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]].

* The JusticeLeagueOfAmerica is quite open about being inspired (both in the comics and in real life) by the JusticeSocietyOfAmerica.
* JackKirby's ''NewGods'' series was heavily inspired by concepts Kirby had laid out earlier in his run on ''TheMightyThor''. In fact, as Website/{{Cracked}} points out, [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/4-unlicensed-crossovers-hidden-in-famous-comics_p2/ Kirby purposefully laid down some strong hints]] that ''New Gods'' was in fact a StealthSequel to his ''Thor'' run!
