eBay‘s number of listings may soon break the 6 million mark for the first time!

Atomic Avenue: Our percentage of the total number of orders has dropped off sharply since we began implementing a high-dollar minimum order. This has helped prevent “hot” issues from selling out to speculators without purchases of more common stock.

Comic Collector Live: The number of stores has dropped by nearly 50% in the past five years.

HipComic continues to prove itself to be a great up-and-coming marketplace for comics. Their number of listings have grown sharply since MHC began listing there last month.
