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 number of listings continues to hit all-new highs. It’s worth noting that the percentage of sold listings vs active listings continues to decline.

Atomic Avenue: This marketplace is still struggling to reclaim the number of listings it had seven years ago.

Comic Collector Live: Membership is up over 13% in the past year.

HipComic‘s number of listings have flatlined again. No major growth from last month.

Bonanza‘s number of listings have fallen over 10% in the past year.

Ebid‘s number of listings took another jump this month. Perhaps some other sellers have jumped on board or others are ramping up their offerings.
