* In the ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'' episode "The Day the Earth Stood Stupid," the Chief Giant Brain trapped Fry and Leela's minds into such books as ''TomSawyer'', ''Literature/MobyDick'', and ''PrideAndPrejudice''. Fry finally defeats it by trapping his mind in a book of his own writing, "a crummy world of plot holes and spelling errors."

* In the music video for Music/{{A-ha}}'s ''Take On Me'', the (handsome) lead singer who is in a comic book, invites a (very cute) woman who is reading it to join him. She does, and becomes a black-and-white drawn character. When he stands behind a mirror, on one side he (and her) are three dimensional, in color, but on the other side, they're line-drawn black and white. When some {{mook}}s start chasing them, he runs and pulls her along, then pushes her back out to the real world. Then later, she returns the favor and invites him out of the comic and into her world. The official video is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djV11Xbc914 here]].

* In the '80s, the German RPG ''Das schwarze Auge'' (VideoGame/RealmsOfArkania) had a franchise for kids, called ''Der Geheimbund des Schwarzen Auges''. In this game, you were a Guardian at 'The Library', and whenever there is something in a book that went wrong - e.g. Huckleberry Finn got lost in the cave, Long John Silver has staged another coup on Treasure island or whatever - the Guardians enter the book and its story to set it back on track.
