Written and illustrated doubly

I'd like examples of a certain kind of work, which surely must exist: a nonfiction narrative, either typeset or handlettered in columns, set against, or surrounded by, artwork in the margins which tells a parallel story (not the same) in graphic-narrative fashion. The closest thing I can think of is Lynda Barry's What It Is.

I ask because I'd like to write and design something like this, and I'm sure it's been done before, so I'd like to check that out.

There's a fair bit of this in Dave Sim's graphic novel series Cerebus (well, fake nonfiction). If I recall correctly, Jaka's Story has a lot of it.
