Part of my long-running series of calling out TV Tropes.

The TV Tropes page Recursive Canon says this:

At various times, Captain America has been the artist for the in-universe Captain America comics. No, really.

Is this true? Has the 616 universe version of Steve Rogers ever been shown illustrating his own, or anyone else's comics?

    Your series complements mine of calling out Wikipedia (here and here). – Praxis Jul 24 '16 at 18:18

    @Praxis I'm all for calling out Wikipedia. – Rogue Jedi Jul 24 '16 at 18:25

    Skeptics are an endangered resource in a world that desperately needs them. And I mean real skeptics - people who ask the questions because they're interested in the truth, not people who ask the questions because they want to prove their enemy wrong. It's the most valuable thing sites like StackExchange bring to the world. – corsiKa Jul 25 '16 at 15:20

Yes, in Captain America #311, Steve Rogers quits working as an advertising exec (his secret identity) and goes to work for Marvel. They put him to work illustrating Captain America comics.

    If you had told me there was a property that was further up its own back end than Leisure Suit Larry 3 this morning, I wouldn't have believed you. – GGMG-he-him Jul 24 '16 at 18:55

    So did Steve Rogers draw this page? – Anton Sherwood Jul 24 '16 at 23:47

    No. At this time Steve Rogers was temporarily illustrating the in-universe Captain Rogers magazine. – Vince O'Sullivan Jul 25 '16 at 11:26
  • And this issue of the in-universe magazine has him illustrating Captain America #311. It's the kinda thing that gives the Watcher a headache. – candied_orange Jul 25 '16 at 18:15
