** Italian Disney comics regulatly do it too. In later years some writers started to use them to actually call out the reader for not remembering the story (or stories) they're calling back to, asking them to ''stop reading'' the current story until they don't finish to read the older one(s).

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/AlEwing's Marvel work is very heavy on continuity nods so his comics tend to include a [[FootnoteFever lot of editor's notes]] this was even lapmshaded in ''Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'' #12 when after one too many:
--> ** Loki already knows! See ''Comicbook/{{Angela|MarvelComics}}: Asgard's Assassin #2''! - Wil (Last one! Promise)

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/PatsyWalkerAKAHellcat'' has it frequently given its reliance on {{Continuity Nod}}s, specially to Hellcat's tenure in Comicbook/TheDefenders in the 1970s. And given it's a comedic title, more often than not the thing mentioned is so weird that it warrants a NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer.

* ''Magazine/ShonenJump'' tends to do this to explain cultural terms or Japanese writing. One issue of ''{{Ultimo}}'' got stupid with it, though, when a character said he was a bodyguard of the nobility, and the footnote explained that bodyguard meant [[ShapedLikeItself "a bodyguard of the nobility"]].

* [[http://mightygodking.com/images/Civil_War/cwp_02_10.jpg This photoshopped page]] (originally from ''Civil War'') starts off with a very good example of how editorial footnotes used to be used, and then goes on to parody Marvel's current-day reluctance to use them as fictional versions of Creator/MarkMillar and JoeQuesada enter in their own editorial boxes to try and throw StanLee's old-school notations out (and him).

Added DiffLines:

* Some non-English versions of the {{TheHitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy}} contain editorial footnotes to explain jokes that do not survive CulturalTranslation. Befitting the written style of the books, these notes are often informal and conversational in tone and wouldn't be out of place within the actual Guide.

Back in [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]], many of these footnotes in Marvel Comics would be credited to a "(Adjective that begins with 'S') Stan". This was, of course, a reference to Creator/StanLee.

* ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' and its sister series ''ComicBook/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'' do this sometimes, although only to events before they started (mostly from the previous ongoing). They aren't labeled "Ed", though.

* DC Comics blundered themselves into a minor flackstorm of criticism regarding editorial footnotes. When asked why ''[[CountdownToFinalCrisis Countdown]]'', which was absolutely dense with references to events from other comics to the point where it was pretty much unreadable on its own (okay, it was pretty much unreadable, period), had no editorial footnote boxes, DC responded that "that's what the Internet is for". The Internet was not amused. DC started putting the boxes in.
