Explanation:

Album

Nowadays most published comics are published in albums, which are a bit larger than a comic and have a cardboard (or better) or cover. Unlike comics albums are more seen as equivalents of books, rather than magazines, they have no cover date and are often reprinted. It is very well possible that this format is a direct import from Belgium.

Comic Magazines

Dutch comics magazines use(d) to have a cover of the same paper as the rest of the magazine, they tended to be rather anthology like, with several short stories and/or episodes from long ones. Many of those stories were collected and reprinted in the *album format.* It is/was rather common for the magazines to contain a mix of Dutch made and imported stories.
