About Robert M. Overstreet and
The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide
Author and Publisher Robert M. Overstreet launched The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide (CBPG) in 1970 after years of research and consultation with prominent dealers and collectors. Demand for the publication was so strong that he had go to back to press – with corrections, changes, and additions – with a second printing in 1971.
Every year since then, based on information supplied by an network of Overstreet Advisors, as well as auction results, catalog sales, and other transactions, a new edition of the Guide has been produced with updated prices, market reports, and other data.
Early in its run, the Guide become known as The Bible of the comic industry. What’s more, starting with Don Newton (CBPG #4), Joe Kubert (#5), Will Eisner (#6), and Carl Barks (#7), a veritable Who’s Who of the top cover artists across its more than five decades has provided cover art for the Guide and made doing an Overstreet cover a bucket list item for professionals.
In 1994, Overstreet sold his company to Geppi Family Enterprises Chairman and President Steve Geppi’s Gemstone Publishing, where he has continued to work on the Guide ever since.
Carrying Bob Overstreet’s relentless dedication to listening to all serious parties in the marketplace, as well as comic book historians, Overstreet Access is a vehicle for delivering updated prices to collectors and dealers alike, along with top level collection management tools and more.
