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 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

A paperback (also known as softback or softcover) is a type of book characterized by a thick paper or paperboard cover, and often held together with glue rather than stitches or staples. In contrast, hardcover or hardback books are bound with cardboard covered with cloth; although more expensive, hardbacks are more durable. Cheap paper, glued bindings, and the lack of a hard cover contribute to the inherent low cost of paperbacks.

Dagdalas Dagdalas
Colum is seventeen, alone in an unfamiliar city, in hospital with two broken legs, and waiting to appear in court on two charges. His lawyer tells him to write an account, in his own words, of what happened to him, so this manuscript starts to take shape. Until now Colum lived in a small, logging town in the countryside of Australia. For much of his life Colum has felt divided. On the one hand he plays football and drinks with his small-town gang of mates. On the other hand he is a loner who escapes into a secret, quiet place in the forest. This sense of division increases when conservationists turn up with the aim of shutting down the timber mill, the town's only source of employment. If the conservationists succeed the town will die, but if the loggers win the industry will soon completely destroy Colum's beloved forest. Tensions increase in Colum until they are released in just a few explosive hours.

This book is written in a very interesting style. Partly this is a 'present' account of Colum's experiences in hospital as he tries to sort through his feels about recent events, and even just get on with life. Partly this is a 'remembered' account of the events that brought Colum to the hospital. Along the way there are various newspaper reports giving an 'independent' commentary on events. Woven into the 'present' account there are quotes from poetry and prose by T.S. Elliott, James Joyce and others. The general plot and this writing style very much reminds me of Aidan Chambers' Dance on My Grave (1982), though it would be too much to say that Wheatley has simply copied from that earlier famous novel. This is certainly an independent and original novel and if you enjoyed Chambers' book you will probably enjoy this one.

On a surface level this book is about the conflict between conservation and industry. Deeper down this is a book about this cynical game of politics. But at its heart this is a novel about the conflicts, compromises and gray shading of adult life. There are no winners here, no easy answers, no simple right and wrong.

As a minor them this book is about literature and why we write. Allied to this is another minor theme of 'truth' and the text. Family conflict also plays a minor role in this book.

Nadia Wheatley has won many Australian literature awards and this book is yet another success. This is a longer, complex work, suited to mature adolescents. It would be an excellent book for a high school review.
