* WebComic/SchlockMercenary: Parodied (or something like parodied) in the ''70 Maxims of Maximally Effective Mercenaries'' book, offered in two editions: "Pristine" (just what it sounds like) and "Defaced":
--> "...the pristine version is one of the thousands of copies of the Seventy Maxims book that the average connoisseur of 31st century printed collectibles might find themselves fortunate enough to acquire; the defaced version is the copy that CDS Sergeant Edwards handed to Private Karl Tagon on March 1st, 3035.\\
Karl’s book has some mileage on it. He made notes on the pages, and on January 28th, 3093, handed it off to his son, Captain Kaff Tagon, who had it for six years, making his own notes. He gifted it to Captain Alexia Murtaugh in 3099, and she added her notes. When Murtaugh was injured in early 3100 Sergeant Schlock went through her stuff, and borrowed the book. He found a felt-tip pen, too, and treated the existing notes as permission to deploy it.

* The printed collections of ''PennyArcade'' have text commentary.
* ''{{Narbonic}}'' is a special case, in that it's available in a ''separate'' annotated edition, which came after the "vanilla" release was completed.

* ''The Annotated Literature/SherlockHolmes'' is a two volume omnibus of all of Creator/ArthurConanDoyle's Holmes stories, in best-guess chronological order, with lots of annotations. Following the tradition of Holmsian scholarship, the annotations are notable in assuming that the stories are non-fiction and that Holmes and Watson are real people. The annotators have a tendency to chide Dr. Watson every times he makes a "continuity error" or "misremembers something" in his writings.

** The Baring-Gould edition has been replaced since the 2000's by ''The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes'' with annotations done by Leslie S. Klinger. This addition is done in three volumes. The first two volumes cover the short stories, while the third volume covers the four novels.

Also common with certain classic works of {{Literature}}, especially those with a reputation for being "dense." ''Literature/FinnegansWake'' and ''{{Ulysses}}'' by Creator/JamesJoyce can be nearly impenetrable without annotation.

* Jess Nevins has a cottage industry annotating Creator/AlanMoore's ''LeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen''. An interesting variation in that his annotations are not published WITH the books, but first on the web, and, at least for Vols. I and II, in book form separately (''Heroes And Monsters'' and ''The Blazing World''). Moore has said that the existence of these annotations meant that "we could be as obscure and far-reaching as we wanted".

* Neil Gaiman's ''ComicBook/{{The Sandman}}'' is being released in an annotated four-volume set. An interesting variation here, as the annotated version has reprinted the entire series without colour, using the original black-and-white line-art, as opposed to being a strict reprint with added footnotes.
