You can add also that the Underworld 2 disc Unrated Special Edition has a reprint mini comic of the Underworld graphic novel

The Death of Superman Best Buy exclusive includes a small hardcover comic book called Death of Superman: The Wake. I believe it is original stories by Louise Simonson drawn by the same artists from the Death of Superman storyarc.

The Best Buy exclusive of Reign of Supermen includes a full size hardcover Death of Superman trade.

The Target exclusive of Spider-Man: Far From Home includes a blu-ray case sized book called Peter Parker's Travel Journal

Deadpool 2 Super Duper Cut Target exclusive includes a Deadpool 2 (Not Suitable For) Children's Book

It's from a digital comic that was released the same time as the Blu-Ray. It's 96 pages and not even the complete story! They printed up to where the digital comic was current. I believe there were two more installments afterwards.

Hard to say because I regularly visited Best Buy around that time and don't remember seeing any of them. I would have definitely come across them if they had been widespread promos. Best Buy and Circuit City before them always had a tough time actively handling these kind of promotional items. Usually they'd end up in a pile by the register with no one, including employees, knowing what they were for.

I don’t remember them either, but with my memory and hoarding, I might have dozens in storage.

Flipping through the book I found in the center that these inserted with specially marked DVDs at Best Buy. There are 8 different covers and they are about the size of the comic books that came with cereals like 4 years ago, not regular sized at all. I learned about this when a friend from my LCS gave me the one with the Jim Lee cover. That one reprints Man of Steel 1 by John Byrne and has a misprint inside saying that the cover is by Alex Ross. The last page has a 800 number to call to find the closes LCS and the back cover promotes the then released Superman DVD releases.

I just realized you don't have any of the Arrow LEs that come with comics:
  • Re-Animator (collection of the 1991 Re-Animator adaptation)
  • Society (collection of the 2003 comic sequel Society: Party Animal)
  • Creepshow 2 (a new comic adaptation of the unfilmed Pinfall sequence)

^ Happy to see it reprinted (from 2020's Blu-Ray release). I believe only the first run got the comic. Same with the Bumblebee release.

Can't believe I forgot to mention this one - The 50th Anniversary Doctor Who Limited Edition Blu-Ray Gift Set came with an IDW comic book created especially for the set.

Just checked my Bumblebee BD+DVD+DC w/ slipcover, it did not have the comic, so only the first run...
