You're exactly right. :) TPB stands for trade paperback.

Also, some TPBs have prelimary sketches or also reprint a freebie or promotional one-shot. (One of the Rogue Squadron TPBs reprints a Kelloggs giveaway, and a Boba Fett TPB reprints a Wizard promo comic.)

You also get the new cover for the TPB itself. They often include the covers from the separate issues inside, plus the cost is often less. Also, a six-issue ($2.95 each) for $17.95 saves you, uh, negative $.25. D'oh! Stupid non-math brain! :p :crazed:
