Peter David once commented that he doesn't get paid for trade paperback collections of his comic book work on Incredible Hulk.
I think what you really mean is "he doesn't get paid AGAIN for trade paperback collections..."
He was compensated -- probably handsomely -- when he did the work originally, in a contract that likely stipulates that the publisher gets to reprint/republish the work without additional compensation.
You're right, that's exactly what I meant. By specifying trade paperback collections, I meant that he got paid for doing the initial monthly comic book, but does not receive any residuals for any additional reprints.
