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!

Atomic Avenue‘s number of available unique issues remains near its highest point.

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 shows strong annual gains of over 20%.
