eBay’s quantity of comic listings continues to climb to new highs.

Atomic Avenue‘s number of available unique issues continues to climb, remaining above 1,500,000.

Comic Collector Live has suffered a big loss in storefronts – down over 20% in the past 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 continues to show strong gains – up over 150% in the past year.

Bonanza‘s number of listings continues its moderate growth – up over 15% in the past year.
