The Hellboy series and its spin-off comics have been collected in over seventy trade paperbacks. They usually include extensive special features, such as additional story material, galleries, and sketchbooks.

HellboyEdit

Hellboy trade paperbacks occasionally contain additional story material not previously published; sometimes this is the presence of a new short story, a new epilogue, or a few new pages in a story. Trades always contain additional art, either in the form of a gallery or a sketchbook. Usually, each story is collected with a short text introduction containing background information on its creation.

These stories have also been collected in omnibus editions in which the stories were placed in chronological order. For a full breakdown, please see the Omnibus Editions page.
