* BongoComics ''Radioactive Man'' parody of 1980s comics, ''Who Washes the Washmen's Infinite Secrets of Legendary Crossover Knight Wars'', is a shining example of how to do this. It is spot-on and obviously written and illustrated by creators who love those comics. Just as importantly, it is very funny - so funny, in fact, that you don't even have to know what they're parodying to enjoy it.

* ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' uses this as well, especially with Victor Mancha, who is programmed to worship in-universe superheroes and often plays straight man to the more GenreSavvy of the group.

** The same could be said of his run on ''{{Supreme}}'' which used many goofy Silver Age-style ideas and stories. Extra points for the fact Moore also made ''a parody of a parody'', taking the ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' Franchise/{{Superman}} parody ''Superduperman'' and writing one based on Supreme, who himself is a Superman analogue.

** ''1963'' is an AffectionateParody of the stories and characters of the SilverAge, but more of a pointed TakeThat to the creators behind them, with the letters pages implying that "Affable" Al Moore (Moore's fictionalised version of himself within the ''1963'' universe and a clear take-off of "Smilin'" Creator/StanLee) is an egotistical tyrant who shamelessly takes credit for the achievements of others.

Added DiffLines:

* Largely the point of ''Comicbook/{{Planetary}}'', in which each issue explores a skewed version of a particular pop-culture icon through the eyes of the main characters; Japanese ''kaiju'' movies one issue, 1960s super-spy thrillers another, and so on. It was often PlayedForDrama, however, in that while the writers were clearly affectionate towards many of the things they were drawing upon, they were also willing to criticise as well; to illustrate, one issue featured a group of characters clearly based on the VertigoComics characters of the 1980s and 1990s, and while one of them passionately champions their political and social relevance and edginess, another bluntly points out that when taken out of that specific set of contexts and appearing in the present day, they can't help but look a bit silly.

* [[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes Calvin's]] alter egos are often used to spoof their various genres. Tracer Bullet covers FilmNoir, Spaceman Spiff is a parody of Sci-fi adventure stuff like ''ComicStrip/FlashGordon'', and Stupendous Man... well, [[Franchise/{{Superman}} guess.]] Occasionally, the comics Calvin was actually reading would be used to give a not-so-affectionate critique of the ultraviolent [[TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks Dark Age of Comic Books]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicStrip/KnightsOfTheDinnerTable'' is essentially a good-natured sendup of tabletop gamer culture. The creators even produced their own licensed verion of the [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons 1st Edition AD&D rules,]] ''TabletopGame/{{Hackmaster}}''.
