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

Collected Trade PaperbacksEdit

These trade paperbacks are known to 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.

Original Graphic NovelsEdit

These original stories are released in hardcover trades. These trades contain none of the special features usually associated with Hellboy trades (no author's notes, no sketchbook/gallery). Considering this, it is likely they will be collected in some other format at a later date, but no such announcement/confirmation has been made by Dark Horse.
