Filed under: Cyberspace Comics Market Report — Doorman @ 8:55 am

I started selling comics full-time in 2010 and wanted to track my progress against the online back issue markets. Here’s a look at the current comics aftermarket and my progress in achieving my goal of becoming a prominent back issue dealer.

From October 2015 to February 2016, eBay was giving away 10,000 free listings to sellers with store accounts. Despite the elimination of this promotion, the number of listings have dipped but not dropped off sharply.

Atomic Avenue‘s total listings are continuing their slow climb out of their most recent 5-year low brought on by a combination of increased selling fees and stricter selling metrics that removed some members (other members left proactively). This month, that slow climb took a slight hit. However, more importantly, their number of unique issues continues to rise consistently – and has done so since I began tracking this data.

Comic Collector Live continues to see consistent growth in their user base.

Amazon‘s collectibles marketplace is too new to draw any conclusions – as is the recently-launched HipComic, which debuted in January 2016.

Bonanza continues to see consistent growth in the number of listings since I started tracking that data.

From October 2015 to February 2016, eBay was giving away 10,000 free listings to sellers with store accounts. It appears that many sellers did not relist those items now that they have to pay for the listings – the total number of ebay listings have begun to slip.

From October 2015 to February 2016, eBay was giving away 10,000 free listings to sellers with store accounts. This accounts for a large spike in listings but we may see the total number of listings start to decline if these listings are not renewed now that those sellers will have to pay the listing fees on them.

Atomic Avenue‘s total listings are slowly climbing out of their most recent 5-year low brought on by a combination of increased selling fees and stricter selling metrics that removed some members (other members left proactively).

Comic Collector Live continues to see consistent growth in their user base.

Amazon‘s collectibles marketplace is too new to draw any conclusions – as is the recently-launched HipComic, which was officially launched in January 2016.
