The Overstreet Guide To Grading Comics – Sixth Edition is on the schedule for an April 7, 2021 debut, this time with its first art cover (Miss Fury illustrated by Billy Tucci) and offered for the first time with a hardcover option.

Grading is often a key factor in real collectability. While The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide provides a massive insight into comic values, The Overstreet Guide To Grading Comics does the same for the importance of condition and accuracy. Even if you’re going to use an independent, third-party grading service, isn’t it better to have a solid idea of what grades you’ll receive from them when you submit your comics?

The Overstreet Guide To Grading Comics includes the 10-point grading system, as well as exhaustive descriptions of Primary and Split Grades. It spotlights each grade with more than 200 full-color images in all, as well as articles on storage, preservation, and restoration, a look at the independent, third-party grading companies, and much more!

Next to the Guide itself, The Overstreet Guide To Grading Comics has always been our best seller. We had originally intended to do this book in the fall of 2021, but demand has increased over the last few months, so it has moved up on the schedule,” said J.C. Vaughn, Vice-President of Publishing for Gemstone Publishing. “And after years of input from retailers and fans, this will be the first edition that offers a hardcover version.”

Advertising information will be available shortly.

The hardcover has a cover price of $34.95 and the the soft cover will retail for $24.95.
