* And in Aaron Williams' earlier comic work ''{{Nodwick}}'', there was a short story arc about marketing the hottest new swear word - KRUTZ! [[spoiler:It's because two necromancers need a word of power said more times than they can hope to themselves in any reasonable amount of time.]]

** ''ComicBook/SpiderMan2099'' writer PeterDavid said he had considered introducing "shuck" as another futuristic epithet, on the grounds that it was a combination of "shit" and "fuck".

* Genis, the title character of PeterDavid's ''ComicBook/CaptainMarVell'' series, used the expletive "grozit". This must be PeterDavid's personal favorite: it's also used by Catalina (who is from Saturn's moon Titan, just like Genis) in the kid's show ''Series/SpaceCases'', which David co created, and by Mackenzie Calhoun from his ''StarTrekNewFrontier'' book series.
** In a PeterDavid-penned Hulk series, "flark" was used as a FutureSlang f-bomb; later, Genis's own circle of friends began using it in the present as alien slang.

* ''ComicStrip/StrontiumDog'' initially used ''Dok'' for {{God}}. When is moved over to ''2000 AD'', it started using the same curses as ''Judge Dredd''. With one notable exception--''StrontiumDog'' has "Sneck" as its "Fuck" Equivalent. For the inhabitants of Mega-City One it's "drokk".

* In Spain, these are known as "Bruguera insults", a reference to the children's comic book publisher Bruguera, which essentially owned the Spanish market between 1940 and late 1980. The fact that they spent the majority of those years under Francoist rule meant that there always was a censor looking at every single word waiting to be printed, and for them, even GoshDangItToHeck was over the line. Since Spaniards are known for loving their profanities, the writers had to resort to making up words that would pass the filters but would kind of sound like actual insults and curses. "Que me aspen", "retruécanos", "merluzo", "percebe", "batracio", "botarate", "tontaina" and a ridiculously long list were used for those 40+ years, until the company filed for bankrupcy (and still are used in their two surviving series, ''MortadeloYFilemon'' and ''ComicBook/{{Superlopez}}'', as an homage to their roots, despite publishers nowadays being fine with anything short of a ClusterFBomb).
