The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #49, which will go on sale Wednesday, July 17, 2019, is now accepting ads.

“There’s a very good reason that next year will be the 50th anniversary of The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide: It remains one of the best ways to reach both experienced collectors and newcomers alike. Whether it’s a serious collector looking for that one key issue, someone who just moved looking for a new comic shop at which to open a pull list, or a family member looking to sell an original owner collection, the Guide is a superb way to reach out to new customers,” said J.C. Vaughn, Vice-President of Publishing for Gemstone Publishing.

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 its 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.
