The Previews Exclusive, Don Newton-illustrated DC Heroes cover edition of The Overstreet Guide To Collecting Comics, which debuted in November 2012, has sold out from Diamond Comic Distributors.
Gemstone Publishing is supplying Diamond with its last two cases – they’re already in transit – and then we’re just down to a handful of copies for sale on our website. Retailers and consumers can still order the Joe Jusko-illustrated Spider-Man cover edition.
The Don Newton version will not be reprinted.
The piece, originally commissioned by Bob Overstreet for The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, had never been used. Newton, who had worked for Charlton, DC, and Marvel, and who had illustrated the first original cover for The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, passed away in 1984 at just 49 years old.
