Since we’ve entered 2021 (such as it may be) and we’re still celebrating the Guide's 50th anniversary as we enter its sixth decade, this seems like a good time to remind you that Overstreet @ 50: Five Decades of the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide is still available in both hardcover and soft cover from our web store (and is still available in soft cover to retailers served by Diamond Comic Distributors.
Since it arrived in comic shops on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 and the feedback has been almost unanimous in its praise. The Guide’s 50-year history as the bible for comic collectors is celebrated in this lush volume. It is part loving tribute and part celebration of everything Bob Overstreet has accomplished with The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide across 50 years.
It includes commentaries about the Guide by former DC Comics President and Publisher Paul Levitz, former CBG Editor Maggie Thompson, pioneering comics dealer David T. Alexander and Buddy Saunders, acclaimed cover artist Joe Jusko, Wynonna Earp creator Beau Smith, CGC Primary Grader Matt Nelson, CBCS Primary Grader Steve Borock, and Torpedo Comics’ Steven Houston.
The book also includes Bob Overstreet’s top five favorite Guide articles from the book’s first five decades.
“This book is a wonderful highlight reel of what makes the Guide so important to comic collecting. Many industry professionals share profound insight into the Guide and its relationship to the hobby, the cover gallery is a timeline of the Guide’s progression, the Hall of Fame entries celebrate some of the greatest creators in our field, and learning about the Guide’s roots from Bob himself is truly illuminating,” said Associate Editor Amanda Sheriff.
It’s available in better comic shops or from our website. Overstreet @ 50 clocks in at 336 pages. It features an Incredible Hulk cover by Joe Jusko, and it will be available in hardcover ($30) and soft cover ($20) versions (plus shipping and handling).
