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 sold listings is back to normal so it’ll look like some major swings have happened (when, in reality, they haven’t).

Atomic Avenue: The number of unique issues available on this marketplace in the past five years has grown by just 2%. This is a consistently stable marketplace.

Comic Collector Live: The number of registered users has increased by nearly 10% in the past year. But the number of open storefronts there has dropped by nearly half in five years.

HipComic continues to prove itself to be a great up-and-coming marketplace for comics. Their number of listings have seen impressive growth over the past five years.
