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 climb to new heights – it has surpassed the 4M mark!

Atomic Avenue‘s number of available unique issues corrected from last month’s small dip.

Comic Collector Live is treading water – no major gains.

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.

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

Bonanza‘s number of listings show moderate gains at 25% over the past year.
