Comic history is filled with imprints, initiatives, and small publisher avenues that were quickly completed or sometimes sidelined for other projects. They are the lost universes. Some are well known and others are more obscure, but each represents a collecting niche for completionists and fans of the more esoteric offerings.
These worlds are featured in The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide to Lost Universes, the new price guide from Gemstone Publishing. In addition to being a price guide, Lost Universes is also a Photo-Journal, meaning that all of the comics listed in the book are also pictured in full color.
Available in hardcover, soft cover, and limited, signed hardcover formats, the book features four covers, including Atlas-Seaboard’s Ironjaw by Lee Weeks, Archie’s Mighty Crusaders by Jerry Ordway, New Universe’s Star Brand by Alex Saviuk and Tom Palmer, and DEFIANT’s Dark Dominion by J.G. Jones.
Packed with articles as well as prices and comic covers, Lost Universes will open up these worlds for new fans and experienced collectors alike. It’s listed on Pages 300-301 of the September 2021 edition of PREVIEWS from Diamond Comic Distributors. This new book is presently scheduled to arrive in comic shops on Wednesday, November 10, 2021.
