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 has dropped for two months in a row. A rarity, these days! Possibly spurred by the $600 stimulus checks that went out causing increased sales on this marketplace (and thus resulting in fewer listings).

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 10% in the past year.

HipComic shed over 15% of their listings from last month.

Bonanza‘s number of listings have fallen slightly in the past year.

Ebid‘s number of listings have leveled off.
