Diamond Comic Distributors


Diamond Comic Distributors was established in 1982 to provide comic book specialty retailers with wholesale, non-returnable comic books and related merchandise.

After more than 20 years of service, Diamond has emerged as the world's largest distributor of English-language comics, graphic novels, and related pop-culture merchandise, with a network of strategically-located Distribution Centers throughout the world.

Our Founder and President, Steve Geppi, doesn't believe in second-place efforts. He knows that Diamond's success comes from offering retail customers the best — in products, in discounts, and in personalized customer service. That's why we bring our customers the merchandise they want at a fair price, and deliver it to them quickly, accurately, and reliably.

Above all, Diamond treats its customers with one important thing: respect.

Gemstone Publishing


Best known as the home of The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, Gemstone Publishing was formed by Diamond Comic Distributors President and Chief Executive Officer Stephen A. Geppi as a conduit for his efforts in preserving and promoting the history of the comics medium.

In the early 1990s, Gemstone separately acquired Russ Cochran Publisher and Overstreet Publications, which brought with them The Complete EC Library and the noted line of price guides, respectively. As a result, Gemstone also publishes The Overstreet Comic Book Grading Guide, The Big Big Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, Hake's Price Guide to Character Toys, and The Overstreet Toy Ring Price Guide, and co-published Tales of Terror! - The EC Companion with Fantagraphics Books. Gemstone has also published to date 13 hardcover volumes in the EC Archives series, reprinting the original EC Comics from the 1950s in chronological sequence in a high-quality format.

Hake's Americana & Collectibles


Hake's Americana & Collectibles is widely known as the nation's premier pop culture collectible mail-, Internet-, and phone-bid auction house. In 1965, while still a college student, Founder Ted Hake began to issue carbon copy sales lists consisting of political pinback buttons. Customer reaction was beyond all expectations, with many customers disappointed to learn that an item of interest had been sold a day or two before they could place an order. To address this problem, Hake decided to conduct his sales in auction format. Over the years, Hake has authored 15 collectibles price guides on subjects ranging all the way from presidential campaign artifacts to television collectibles. Diamond International Galleries acquired Hake’s Americana & Collectibles in March 2004.
