Looking for sister series that are comic and dramatic, respectively.

Portal and Half Life take place in the same creative universe, with Portal taking on a more humorous tone, while Half Life is more like an action movie. I really like this approach to a creative universe. Are there any other pairs/groups of media that take two different tones around one world?

I'm looking for stories with a somewhat consistent canon (IE one media acknowledges major events in the other), but it doesn't need to be super-strict.
Another example I can think of other than Portal/Half Life is Doctor Who/Torchwood (I don't really like Torchwood, though).
I'm guessing this probably exists in a lot of comic book universes, but I never really read many things in that medium other than graphic novels that were more like memoirs, like Persepolis and Same Difference.
