Overstreet Guide to Collecting Comics in stores today

by John Jackson Miller

Reference work plug: Just a note that your archivist is among many comics collectors and creators profiled in the new Overstreet Guide to Collecting Comics, available today from your local comics shop, as well as from Gemstone Publishing. (See my excerpt here.) A full color, 336-page, comic book-size trade paperback, the book is a fun read and a useful reference tool to collection care, storage, and the purchase of classic comics.

The book is available in two softcover editions: one has a new Spider-Man cover by Joe Jusko, and another features the previously unpublished DC Heroes cover by the late Don Newton. Both editions are available for ordering on the Gemstone Publishing site and are also available today from your local comics shop or online retailer.

And also in the plug department, but related to the activities here — today's Bart Simpson #77 from Bongo Comics contains a tip of the hat to one of the main obsessions of this site and yours truly (who authored the tale). I figured if Comic Book Guy was going to tell a Statement of Ownership joke, I'd have to write it!
