Bill & Ted's Excellent Comic Book was a comic series in the Bill and Ted franchise that ran for 12 issues from December 1991 to November 1992.

Tropes used in Bill & Ted's Excellent Comic Book include:

  • Comic Book Adaptation: Marvel Comics did one of these for the second movie, which was followed by its own ongoing title, "Bill and Ted's Excellent Comic Book". They were written and drawn by Evan Dorkin; the comic ran for twelve issues and was nominated for an Eisner Award.
    • The entire run (except for issue #8) was finally collected in two trade paperbacks in 2005.
  • Death by Adaptation: De Nomolos in the Marvel Comics adaptation. This is because the comic was based off an early draft of the script that was rewritten before they started filming.
  • Death Takes a Holiday: Issue #2 of the comic is "Death Takes a Most Heinous Holiday".
  • Did Not Do the Research: In the forward to Volume 1, Dorkin mentions that he's never seen the first movie.
  • Expanded Universe: The comic book series, which downplayed the time-travelling aspect of the movies and turned its attention to zombies, aliens, assassins, super-heroes, theme parks, and record industry executives.
  • He Also Did: Aside from Evan Dorkin, the comic featured inks from Marie Severin (of Doctor Strange and Not Brand Echh! fame) and (for one page) David Mazzucchelli.
  • Kid From the Future: Done in the final issue, where the two main characters are visited by their grown-up children from the future.
  • Late Arrival Spoiler: Done in issue #11 of the comic, when the boys finally find out that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. Hilarity Ensues when they rescue him, then again when they try to send Abe back...
  • May-December Romance: In a play on the original from the first movie, in the comic book Bill's father (originally the "December" part) marries Mother Nature.
  • Subbing for Santa: The Grim Reaper is replaced in issue #9 of the comic.
  • Time Crash: Occurs in issues #5-7 of the comic.
  • Time Police: The Chronological Order and Time Thumb, from the comic book.
