Book publishingIn book publishing, if a reprint has been revised from an earlier version, it is usually referred to as a new edition rather than a reprint.
Collectible card gamesIn collectible card games, a reprint is a card published in an earlier card set which is published again in a new card set. Often, the art on the card may be changed, or the text updated to reflect new errata.
Comic booksPublishers will reprint classic comic books from years or even decades ago, often restoring the art with newer techniques. The reprints may be standalone comic books, compilation trade paperbacks, or back-ups in other comic books.
