* In the MarvelUniverse, there's an actual MarvelComics company that produces licensed comics based on the real-life adventures of the heroes. This started as early as ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' #10, January 1963. The ''She-Hulk'' series uses these in-universe comics in the title character's legal cases. DCComics, after abandoning [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis Earth-Prime]], took this idea into their own canon.

* The ''CaptainUnderpants'' books frequently feature comics based on the title character created by George Beard and Harold Hutchins. Almost every book begins with George and Harold presenting a comic providing exposition on the series up to that point. The ''Super Diaper Baby'' spinoff books have the ''entire books'' in the same comic format.

* In one issue of ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', Shakespeare and his actors perform ''AMidsummerNightsDream'' for Oberon, Titania, and numerous members of the fairy realm. Since, as noted above, ''A Midsummer Night's Dream'' already contains a ShowWithinAShow, this makes the play about Pyramus and Thisbe a show within a show ''within a show''.
