intitle:"(comic" returns results which do not contain that phrase in the title.
I've had similar issues with the insource:"searchTerm." usually searching for either full stops or the vertical bar character |.
With insource I can work around the issue using a regex search e.g. insource:/\(comic/, but regex doesn't work with intitle (that's T156474: Add the possibility to do regex search on titles which I came here to file today and someone beat me to the punchline...).
