Seven Seas describes them

Devilman: The Classic Collection is the original manga by Go Nagai first published in 1972, a dark tale following Akira Fudo as he harnesses the power of the demon Amon and transforms into the powerful Devilman. Devilman VS. Hades is a stand-alone sequel, continuing from the end of the original manga and following Akira’s new quest in hell–with a surprise showdown between Devilman and the legendary mecha Mazinger Z! Both series will be translated by acclaimed manga classics expert Zack Davisson.

“It’s an incredible honor to bring Go Nagai’s original Devilman to North America in special deluxe hardcover editions,” says Seven Seas editor-in-chief Adam Arnold. “And of all the Devilman spin-offs and sequels over the years, Devilman VS. Hades is an especially great one with amazing art and tons of Go Nagai bang for your buck. These two series are the perfect combination of timeless classic and modern continuation.”
