* ''ComicBook/TheNewTeenTitans'' #8 had an early such story called "A Day in the Life of..." where each team member had some personal matters to deal with: Raven, after thwarting a terrorist attack with her soul self being kept outside her body for too, had to deal with the arduous consequences and came out better than she hoped. Starfire helps Donna Troy who was dealing with a demanding client by instantly landing a modeling job with him. Cyborg is rejected by his girlfriend for his implants, but soon finds new friends with Sarah Simms and the kids prothestics support group she's supervising.


** ''Studio Danse'': Slice of ballerina life.

* ''Film/GhostWorld'' follows around a graduating teenage girl in a summer as she tries to decide what she's going to do with her life. The subplot about her trying to act as a ManicPixieDreamGirl for a 40-something man is only one of the many things she tries.


** ''Shanda the Panda'', the SpiritualSuccessor to ''Omaha'', has a similar tone, but confines the sex scenes to their own title.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/StrangersInParadise'' was largely SliceOfLife, but had a rather incongruous thriller subplot involving a conspiracy to take over the government.
* ''ComicBook/LoveAndRockets'' by Los Bros Hernandez started off as grab-bag of surrealism, SliceOfLife and MagicalRealism. With time, the SliceOfLife elements predominate.
* ''ComicBook/OmahaTheCatDancer'' combines the SliceOfLife and UsefulNotes/{{Furr|yFandom}}ies. Oh yeah, and [[{{Yiff}} explicit sex scenes]].
** ''Shanda the Panda'', the SpiritualSuccessor to ''Omaha'', has a similar tone, but confines the sex scenes to their own title.
* Most issues of ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' were actually SliceOfLife pieces, with the heroes and villains taking a back seat to the ordinary citizens just trying to keep their lives together in a world where superpowered beings attempt to save-and/or-destroy the world on a regular basis.
* ''ComicBook/AmericanSplendor.''
* In ''ComicBook/SpiderManLovesMaryJane'' superheroics become a background detail to Mary Jane's crush on the popular superhero Spider-Man.
* Some of Creator/RobertCrumb's autobiographical works, like ''Self Loathing Comics'' which was an autobiographical collaboration with him and his wife Aline.
* Roberta Gregory's ''Naughty Bits'', for the most part.
* ''ComicBook/ArchieComics'' follows a group of fifties-esque teenagers about their daily lives.
* ''[[Franchise/TheFlash Impulse]]'' was intended to be this by Creator/MarkWaid, the character's creator (ie. primarily SliceOfLife with a dash of superhero). It worked, at first - some very memorable moments include Bart [[ItAmusedMe not-so-indirectly starting a massive schoolfight]] in #3, and [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/1609089.html this]] story from #6 - but along the way it somehow mutated into primarily superhero with a [[IncrediblyLamePun dash of life]].
* Swedish indie comic writer Coco Moodysson's autobiographic comic book ''Coco Platina Titan Total'': several slices of teenage and early-20s life.
* ''Film/GhostWorld'' follows around a graduating teenage girl in a summer as she tries to decide what she's going to do with her life. The subplot about her trying to act as a ManicPixieDreamGirl for a 40-something man is only one of the many things she tries.
* It can be argued that ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' both subverts and plays this straight. While the world they live in is clearly a weird video gamed based society where everyone at the least has the potential for super powers, in their world, that is considered the norm. The main plot is essentially the lives and dynamic between all of the characters. When they aren't fighting, everything is actually quite normal, and is almost like a Canadian hipster version of ''Series/{{Friends}}''.
* ''ComicBook/{{Zot}}'':
** One issue was called "Jenny's Day", and was just that: it showed Jenny get up in the morning, go to school, and showed an ordinary day in her life. It was made interesting by seeing her thoughts and how much she hated her life and would rather be living on Zot's world.
** Later issues of ''Zot!'', titled "The Earth Stories" did this, focusing on just one minor character and showing a sample of their life.
* The ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational'' series by Keith Giffen and J. M. [=DeMatteis=] had plots that dealt with its superheroes in these situations in a comedic way, such as [[Franchise/GreenLantern Guy Gardner]] and Ice having a date at an ice show or the team going to a French language school.
* ''The Alcoholic''
* ''ComicBook/SunnyvilleStories'' is basically about the daily adventures of its two protagonists, Rusty and Sam. They have many daily adventures in their CloseKnitCommunity that usually are quite mundane and related to everyday life.
* ''{{ComicBook/Circles}}'' is a Slice of life {{Dramedy}} FurryComic that focuses on the lives of six gay men living in the same residence and how their lives are individually and collectively affected throughout the seasons with each chapter being a season of the year. e.g. Spring 2001 ==> Summer 2001, etc.
* The Franco-Belgian comics imprint ''Bamboo Édition'' specializes in doing these. To wit, among many others:
** ''Les Pompiers'': Slice of firefighter life.
** ''Les Gendarmes '': Slice of policeman life.
** ''Les Toubibs'': Slice of medical doctor life.
** ''Les Profs'': Slice of schoolteacher life.
** ''Studio Danse'': Slice of ballerina life.
** ''Les Petits Mythos'': Slice of Greek mythology figure kid life ([[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer yes, really]]).
** ''Les Cop's'': Slice of social media teen life.
** ''Les Musicos'' (AKA ''Rob, Web & C.''): Slice of up-and-coming rock band life.
** ''ComicBook/LesSisters'': Slice of, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin you know]].
