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 hit a major snag this month. It dropped over 15% from last month.

Comic Collector Live is treading water – no major gains. Their number of stores has showed strong gains from last month, though. This is a promising sign for that marketplace.

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. I have removed them from my monthly reports now.

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%.
