I would have given this guide 5 stars if it wasn't so hard to use at times. Some comics are listed by publisher while others are listed by name. Over a quarter of this book is ads and I did feel slightly cheated that this was the case when there are so many independant comics I can't find listed. There are no prices given in case of signatures on the comics, which makes pricing them difficult. We have comics signed by the writers and artists as well as the creators of the characters. Not knowing what the signatures are worth is frustrating. Otherwise, this guide has been very useful in cataloging our collection.

I got my first Overstreet in 1978 and have been an avid fan since then of Bob Overstreet's wonderful guide to comics. Basically, this book is like the textbook of Comics 101 and you should study it cover to cover, every day for 365 days (or until the next volume comes out) and you will ALWAYS find something to learn. Covering comics in all forms from the Victorian Age to the Modern Age, the guide puts the most amount of info on each page so as to be informative but not confusing. My one qualm - the paper tends to tear if you grip it to strongly, but that doesn't happen often. You would do well to purchase this for the wonderful guide to understanding comic fandom as well as the variants that are out there in the comic world. GREAT STUFF!!

The summary pages from the different comic dealers are very helpful each year. I especially enjoyed and learned from the section at the end of the guide also, which was a very detailed report about the many variant comics that are around.Jon Martin McClure updated his earlier research in an efficient, informative,and enjoyable writing style.This,for me, was one of the best guides ever.
