This is the first month since January 2018 where the number of eBay’s comic listings was lower than the previous month. Much of this drop is attributed to MHC shedding over 100,000 listings.

Atomic Avenue‘s number of available unique issues has leveled out after a large drop which was noted last month.

Comic Collector Live is treading water – no major gains.

HipComic‘s marketplace is showing over 100% gains in listings in the past year.

Bonanza‘s number of listings took a hit this month – down 8% from last month.

eBay’s quantity of comic listings continues to climb to new heights!

Atomic Avenue‘s number of available unique issues hit a major snag this month. It dropped over 15% from last month.

Comic Collector Live is treading water – no major gains. Their number of stores has showed strong gains from last month, though. This is a promising sign for that marketplace.

Amazon‘s collectibles marketplace is not reporting accurately still. They show 50,000 listings in the marketplace – I have over 100,000 listings so I know their reported numbers are inaccurate. I have removed them from my monthly reports now.

HipComic‘s marketplace is showing over 100% gains in listings in the past year.

Bonanza‘s number of listings shows strong annual gains of over 20%.
