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.

eBay’s quantity of comic listings continues to remain near its highest point.

Atomic Avenue‘s number of available unique issues continues to climb – now surpassing 1.5M listings (the first time it’s been this high in three years).

Comic Collector Live has increased their storefronts by just 1% this month – total number of available issues has dropped by more than 6% from last year.

Amazon‘s collectibles marketplace is not reporting accurately today. They show 50,000 listings in the marketplace – I have over 100,000 listings so I know their reported numbers are inaccurate.

HipComic‘s marketplace has shown enormous gains in the past year – up over 125% now that Newkadia has joined

Bonanza‘s number of listings have shown strong gains in the past year – up over 15%.
