Reservations are now being accepted for advertising in The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #54.

Scheduled to go on sale on Wednesday, July 24, 2024, we’re now hard at work on CBPG #54, and we’d love to have your ad in the book!

The Guide isn’t just used once. Its readers refer to it over and over throughout the year, meaning your ad is seen over and over again!

The Guide has stood the test of time! Since 1970, the Guide has been the Bible of serious comic book collectors and dealers alike! Seriously, we’ve been at this for more than five decades and there’s a reason we keep connecting buyers and sellers.

As with previous years, all full-page advertisers receive a complimentary Directory Listing!

And for the first time ever, all full-page advertisers will receive one complimentary copy of an exclusive Overstreet Advisors/Advertisers edition of the Guide! This cover will be announced in the near future.

The deadline for reserving and paying for your ads is Friday, March 15, 2024.
Files: The deadline for submitting your files for publication is Monday, March 25, 2024.
On Sale: CBPG #54 is scheduled to go on sale Wednesday, July 24, 2024.

Editor’s Note: For The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #54, already we’ve announced matching covers celebrating the 30th anniversaries of two indie comics icons, Lady Death and Shi. Illustrated by Billy Tucci with colors by Wes Hartman, the individual covers pair up to form one bigger image. They will be offered individually and in sets. More announcements will be forthcoming.
