* Creator/GregRucka's ''ComicBook/QueenAndCountry'' series is a homage/update of British spy series ''TheSandbaggers''.
** Likewise, his book ''ComicBook/{{Stumptown}}'' is supposed to be a modern day version of the ''TheRockfordFiles''.
* ComicBook/TheMetabarons is heavily inspired by and can be seen as a SpiritualSuccessor to ''{{Dune}}''. The Shabda-Oud are the Bene Gesserit devoid of any concern for humanity's growth or future, the Technopriests are the Harkonnen with heavy doses of the Tleilaxu, and the Metabarons themselves are the Atreides with even more tragedy.
* 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!
** He did it again later with the creator-owned "Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers", where the Captain's father is ''clearly'' Orion, and he fights his villainous disembodied grandfather [[Comicbook/{{Darkseid}} Blackmass.]]
* Johnathan Hickman's ''ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}'' picks up on a lot of the similar thematic elements that were explored in WarrenEllis' ''{{Planetary}}''.
* ComicBook/SecretSix to the ComicBook/SuicideSquad. After DC Reboot, the ComicBook/SuicideSquad reboot replaced the ComicBook/SecretSix, making this go full circle.
* 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]].
** Worth noting that [[WhatCouldHaveBeen origianlly it was supposed to]] be successor to [[XForce X-Statix]]. While the plans changed, the influence is still there.
** It also draws some of its tone, and a couple characters, from Creator/JoeCasey's ''Vengeance''.
* ''ComicBook/{{Tintin}}'': Its style was widely imitated in the European comic strips scene. Especially the work of Edgar P. Jacobs (ComicBook/BlakeAndMortimer) and Bob De Moor show this. Not surprisingly, both artists worked as assistants to Hergé.
* A lot of comic strip authors for the Belgian comics magazine "Spirou" had a very similar looking style, inspired by Creator/AndreFranquin. They were even nicknamed "The School of Marcinelle".
* ''ComicBook/SuskeEnWiske'': In terms of commercial success, comedy and word play ''ComicStrip/DeKiekeboes'' is probably the closest.
* ComicStrip/{{Nero}}: In terms of drawing style, black comedy and surrealistic stories in a Flemish setting ''ComicBook/{{Urbanus}}'' is the spiritual successor.
* Bryan Lee O'Malley's ''ComicBook/{{Seconds}}'' is one for his previous book, ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'', with the emphasis on zany humor and characters and a very {{Animesque}} art style.
* 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.
