Re: List of Comics Included with DVDs

I'm pretty sure my copy of Event Horizon came with a promotional Iron Man comic for some reason.

Re: List of Comics Included with DVDs

Not sure if it is a "comic" but the fantastic 4 had a book packaged with it. I got it at wal-marts black friday sale a few years back.

Re: List of Comics Included with DVDs

When the original Indiana Jones movies received individual releases not too long ago Best Buy had three different Indiana Jones comics with each.

Hellboy 2: The Golden Army came with a comic (forget which story) as a Target exclusive.

Great idea! I'm sure I have many more to add, will try to dig them out someday.

All of them will be listed in the weekly exclusive posts if you want to search through those.

Help fill in the question marks!
I finally checked our stock over here on this one. The version of Event Horizon we had came with a "Marvel Adventures" comic featuring Iron Man. Comic is written by Fred Van Lente and penciled by James Cordeiro. Title of story is "Heart of Steel".

It was actually included under the shrinkwrap.

Re: List of Comics Included with DVDs

Updated as of 8/2. Note: I have become aware that Spider-Man 2, Fantastic Four and Sin City came with 32-page comics at Best Buy, but they were included separately from the package and were left out in the open at the store. As such, I chose not to include them in the list, but if people know of any others I could make a list to the side if anyone wanted.
