* In the ''ComicBook/DarkHorseMonsters'' story "Mike and Viv Go to Vegas!", a bickering married couple [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin on their way to Las Vegas]] suddenly find themselves transported through time to the Cretaceous Period. Their forward momentum is halted when Viv, who is driving, hits a ''Triceratops''. Neither she nor her husband seem to care about it ''or'' the ''Velociraptors'' and other dinosaurs who immediately begin feasting on its carcass, even though they have a front seat of the animals through their windshield. Instead, they content themselves with arguing over whose fault it is that they haven't gotten to Vegas yet. It takes the sudden appears of two ''Tyrannosaurs'' to finally make them react in any meaningful way, but even then, after their initial shock at the sight of two huge predators, Mike and Viv immediately return to arguing and ignoring everything around them.

* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' and ''NinjaHighSchool'' exist in a shared universe where weirdness tends to be... concentrated. In Quagmire and the Digger's home towns, werecheetahs, aliens, magic, and other such phenomena get brushed off as completely normal. A police officer reacting in shock is normally brushed off as 'heh, newbies'. Being more circumspect is required more elsewhere in the world, not everyone's as blase about nonhumans and powers as those in the WeirdnessMagnet towns, but even elsewhere a flying car tends to not be as big a deal as you'd expect.

* A gag in ''Los Ladrones de Coches'' has [[MortadeloYFilemon Mortadelo]] leaning on a wall and watching bored how several persons who look like thugs carry away automobile parts [[spoiler:he was tasked with guarding the car of the ''Súper'' against thieves, and since they did not steal it Mortadelo did nothing. Later we see the car reduced to just a bare bodywork, those thieves having stripped it of everything. A chase of Mortadelo by both Filemón and el Súper, and a few vignettes, later ''even the bodywork has been stolen'']]

* In ''ComicBook/PsychoMan'' God grants the main character Kevin superpowers in order to jumpstart the human race. Whenever Kevin uses his powers, no one thinks it's odd in the slightest, much to the frustration of Linkara. Kevin smashes a brick wall with his bare hands? A cop tries to arrest him for destroying public property. Kevin flies around to impress a girl? She calls him a freak and runs away. Kevin flies off after having a fight with his parents? His mom wonders how he's doing that, but his dad dismisses it as one of his 'tricks'.

* In ''ComicBook/HouseOfMystery'' various people from different realities and worlds come to an inn where they pay for their drinks in stories. One patron from an alternate [[BigApplesauce New York City]] tells the story of [[ShaggyDogStory that one time he was late for work and got there and found out he left his work boots at home and then went home and got them and he was still on time]]. While the people in the inn are bored to tears, the audience sees the story unfold with his dull, droning narration, and we learn that his roommate was eaten by a giant spider on the ceiling, he got attacked by flying vampiric cats on the subway, and got accosted by [[OurZombiesAreDifferent undead homeless people]] begging for spare brains. Virtually every panel contains at least one [[FunnyBackgroundEvent completely insane background event]]. Thing is, he considers all this fairly normal aspects of his everyday life, so he didn't think any of it worth mentioning. Oh, and when he says he works in pest control, he really means [[BadassNormal he spends all day killing 12-foot monster bugs in a quarantine zone with an assault rifle]].

* Most people in ''ComicBook/CerebusTheAardvark'' either don't seem to even notice that the protagonist isn't human, are too polite to comment on it, or misinterpret what they're seeing. (Elrod, for example, thinks he is just a "kid in a bunny suit".)
