I wish the Punisher comic by Ennis/Dillon would have been reprinted in the Marvel Knights omnibus of their run. I think I left my copy in the case when I sold it.

The Maze Runner BD came with an original prequel comic
Dawn of the Dead Ultimate Edition DVD came with the first issue of the adaptation
Are we including digital copies? Like how X-Men: First Class came with a digital download of an original comic (The High Hand)

I'm torn on this. Part of me loves being able to get content that I missed; but when I go out of my way and sometimes pay a premium to get 'exclusive' content, I want it to stay exclusive and hate to see it made available later.

I know that the Best Buy version of Todd McFarlane's Spawn: 10th Anniversary Edition (the HBO animated series) included a mini-comic reprint of Spawn #1.

Turns out the Hellboy 2 minicomic consists of reprints: http://www.comicbookdb.com/issue.php?ID=148854

I forgot about that Spawn reprint. I ended up with 2 copies for some reason.

Regular release.

Bumblebee's Blu-ray release contains deleted and extended scenes, outtakes, and several featurettes. Also included is a physical glossy cover comic book entitled Sector 7 Adventures: The Battle at Half Dome.

The Collector's Edition of Once Upon a Time in America includes a little Mad Magazine comic book like the one shown on the film.

Re: List of comic books included with DVDs/BDs/etc

Thanks for the updates Red Hood . And needless to say, if anyone ever feels like selling any promo or FCBD sort of comics, those are areas where my OCD collecting will likely always continue.

My OCD is splitting me in two - Do I keep the comics with the DVD/Blu-Rays or do I put them in bag and boards and store them with my comic collection.

Re: List of comic books included with DVDs/BDs/etc

Obviously one must own two of each, one on the media shelves, and one in the comic boxes!

But more seriously, I finally decided that all promo comics get filed in their own box(es). My collection is an unorganized jumble right now, but once I’m done I figure I’ll have a couple boxes of FCBD books, one HalloweenFest, and at least one “other”. I also plan to have my signed books in a separate box, and then one box for all my high priced books. So if I had to flee in a fire or somesuch, I might be able to grab the valuable and rare stuff quickly. Or more likely, make it easy for thieves.

As long as you keep the books in an unmarked box, good chance thieves won't bother them. They are mostly looking for safe boxes, guns, prescription/illegal drugs and game consoles. Now, I probably be more afraid of them stealing my food, cleaning products and toilet paper.
