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, forewords, afterwords, galleries, and sketchbooks.

Hellboy

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 re-ordered chronologically. For a full breakdown, please see the Omnibus Editions page.

Orphaned Stories

The following stories have not yet been collected, nor are they specifically tied to any pre-existing series.

Library and Omnibus Editions

As enough material accumulates, Hellboy and its spinoffs have been recollected in omnibus editions, first available in hardcover and later paperback. Hellboy is also available in oversized hardcover volumes called library editions. Both formats frequently offer different/expanded additional materials; namely, sketchbook sections.
