“We are happy to announce that we will be releasing Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood OVA and Digital Comic in the UK as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack in October. Aiming for 22-Oct street date. Will be online to pre-order by end of May we hopefully. This is the same release as the Funimation version in the US. Includes 2-discs, 4 x OVAs and the entire digital comic series.”
The digital comic is otherwise known as ‘four panel theatre’ of which there are 16 total. Scenes such as these usually appear at the end of a manga chapter where they may delve more into a character or even just be a comedy short.

The Sacred Star of Milos movie will be released on DVD & Blu-Ray on September 3rd and now the OVA collection is being released on October 22nd.
