The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #48 is set to go on sale on Wednesday, July 18, 2018, and you can be part of it! Reach out to collectors, dealers and historians who know and use the Guide as a trusted resource. 

Since 1970, the Guide has been the Bible of serious comic book collectors and dealers alike. Along the way, we have seen the top prices paid for comics go from hundreds of dollars to millions. During that time comic collecting has gone from a quiet hobby to one with huge pop culture impact. With it’s proverbial Who’s Who of cover artists ‒ starting with Joe Kubert, Will Eisner, and Carl Barks, and including the likes of Mark Chiarello, Darwyn Cooke, Amanda Conner, Walter Simonson, and Joe Jusko ‒ the Guide has been there for all of it.
