* An extremely fast one in ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound'', which introduced a parody of Music/MichaelJackson with a CreepyChild servant just a couple weeks before his death. The author commented:
-->'''John Allison:''' The last thing anyone expects, when they have introduced a character who is a kind of grotesque version of a world superstar, is for that superstar to die. It is entirely possible that Michael Jackson sat down to read ''Scary Go Round'' yesterday, began to turn slowly purple at what he saw, and collapsed clutching his arm. Actually I know that isn't true. Jackson was on record (citation needed) as more of a ''Webcomic/DresdenCodak'' man.
* In ''Webcomic/CuantaVida'': "If I killed 'em, they'ed replace 'em with someone faster." [[spoiler:Poor, poor Liam.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'': The mouseover text for [[http://xkcd.com/625/ strip #625, "Collections"]], reads: "You know what really helps an existential crisis? Wondering how much shelf space to leave for a Creator/TerryPratchett collection."
* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'':
** [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=858 The last panel of this]] strip, in which Dora freaks out about possibly sabotaging her relationship with Marten, has this effect if you've read through the rest of the series.
** It gets worse -- Jeph Jacques has admitted to a dependence on alcohol and a series of mental issues, so the dozens of strips about depressive people drinking heavily to unwind gets a bit uncomfortable.
* ''Webcomic/TheEasyBreather'': Two British news reports are related to the DVD WebOriginal/JennyEverywhere and Samantha Lewis watched:
** Sometime in 2010, ITN reported on an Indonesian boy, then 2 years old, who started smoking at the age of 18 months.
** In July 2013, [=ParentDish=] UK had an article headlined "Parents who smoke 'deprive their kids of food, clothes and presents to fund habit'".
* ''Webcomic/VGCats'' had a small gag, in its 26th comic, about [[Series/SesameStreet Elmo]] getting caught in a sex scandal. Years later, it turned out that Elmo's puppeteer, who had the job when the strip was published and ultimately had it for over 30 years, might have been a statutory rapist and had to resign.
* ''Webcomic/{{Mulberry}}'' had a 2015 ''BANG! Magazine''-exclusive story, "My Fat Lady", that comes off as this after the release of ''Film/Ghostbusters2016''. The comic ends with the less crude Creator/MelissaMcCarthy helping the movie earn a reception as glowing as that of ''Film/Ghostbusters1984''. The hopes that ''Ghostbusters'' would boast one of [=McCarthy=]'s least crude performances would eventually come true, but it would only earn a SoOkayItsAverage critical reception and box office performance[[note]]a 73% Website/RottenTomatoes score vs. the original's 97%, and a worldwide gross that covered the production budget, but not advertising[[/note]].
