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 significantly. The comics market is extremely hot on eBay and sellers are having a hard time creating more listings than are selling.

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

Comic Collector Live: This one is very surprising. Given the heat that the online comic market is currently experiencing, I’m shocked to see that the number of sellers on CCL continues to decline.

HipComic shed over 5% of their listings from last year. This is similar to eBay, where stuff is selling faster than it can be listed.

Bonanza‘s number of listings have risen sharply in the past month.

Ebid‘s number of listings have leveled off.
