Trade paperback

A trade paperback (TPB or simply trade) specifically refers to a collection of stories originally published in comic books reprinted in book format, usually capturing one story arc from a single title or a series of stories with a connected story arc or common theme from one or more titles. Traditionally, a trade paperback will reproduce the stories at the same size as they were originally presented in comic book format; recently, however, certain trades have been published in a smaller, "digest"-sized format, similar in size to a paperback novel. This smaller size is intended to appeal to newer generations of American readers whose first exposure to a comic book format was the English-translated reprints of digest-sized Japanese comics, also known as manga. The term graphic novel is sometimes used interchangeably, but many people maintain that the terms are distinct.

A trade paperback or TPB is a collection of various comic issues into a single volume.

Issues that are collected into a trade paperback are: part of a larger story arc within an ongoing comic title; a collection of issues from a limited series or crossover event; or smaller story arcs within a title mixed with a few stand alone issues that fit with the theme of the trade paperback.
