Here’s a look back at the previous month in online comic sales.

Number of listings in eBay’s “comics” section: 1,597,133 (-.18% from last month; -8.79% from last year)
Number of those that are Cyberspace Comics listings: 7,776 (-4.51%; +9.32%)
My “market share” of comic listings on eBay: 0.48249% (-4.34%; +19.86%)

Number of eBay comic listings that are auctions: 151,241
Percentage of eBay comic listings up for auction: 9.47%

My current eBay feedback (unique): 14,062
My current eBay feedback (total): 28,270
My postive eBay feedback score: 100%

Position Dollar Sales # of Current Listings
First Marvel Comics Marvel Comics (1,313 listings)
Second Bad Girls TPBs (824 listings)
Third Movie/TV Bad Girls (802 listings)
Fourth TPBs (↑) Image Comics (709 listings)
Fifth DC Comics (↓) Other Indies (493 listings)


All through December 2011, eBay continued its incentives to encourage auction postings. At one point, there were over 270,000 comic auctions going! I expect next month’s numbers to be back down to normalized numbers – maybe even a bit lower.

Number of listings on Atomic Avenue: 1,490,220 (+0.28%; +19.33%)
Number of those that are in the Cyberspace Comics Store on Atomic Avenue: 46,188 (+2.49%; +207.00%)
My “market share” of comic listings on AtomicAvenue: 3.0994% (+3.21%; +157.28%)
My estimated “market share” of AtomicAvenue orders: 5.79% (+3.21%; +7.22%)

As you can see from these huge annual gains, my inventory on AtomicAvenue has increased greatly!

Number of members on ComicCollectorLive: 83,331 (+0.52%)
Number of listings in the Cyberspace Comics Store on CCL: 2,631 (-2.48%)
Number of unique listings in the Cyberspace Comics Store on CCL: 1,292 (-1.30%)
