Pricing is poor here, too much inventory & not enough traffic. Back when it only took 5000 books to reach page 1 it was awesome, I sat & picked off deals on Ebay & listed them here for double. Now I do the exact opposite. I have a lot of regulars here & am not leaving anytime soon but it would serve CCL well to fix some bugs & maybe find some ways to speed things up. Comics are hot & they're kind of missing the boat.


A lot is happening behind the scenes...stay tuned. Angel


Now that's what I like to hear.

I've definitely seen an uptake in the number of orders I've had in the last few months. IDK if it's because a few of the larger stores are vacating or what, but I certainly need to start looking for some more inventory soon to keep this ball rolling.....

I believe you Jim, it's been quiet upstairs for a while now so something must be coming. The million $ question is what are we getting. Hopefully we can do well & have it be because we're stealing business from other sites & not dividing up the sales of departed sellers. The demand is definitely out there for CCL to grab.

All I can really say is that it'll all come together nicely by the end of the year. I don't think you'll be disappointed because believe me, the stuff you guys want to see put in is all the same stuff I want and since I get to help design it...well you know.

Yea it doesn't change the fact for the past 2 years we've been waiting for some updates. I can say we have seen some changes since you join the team but like I said every year someone post big changes coming either at the start or end of the year in nothing happens.

Actually I beleive Jim. He has been straight up with me, and actually quite helpful.

I know the site wasn't set to scale as it could have but we all get to badger them for the features we want, even if it takes a long time to impliment. They (CCL) LISTEN to us. It is more than I can say for Feebay, Amazon, Etc.

I may not always agree, but I think they are pretty solid about it.

Please don't get me wrong Jim is a nice guy. Heck at one time I had a monthly pull from him before he stopped doing it. I also have no reason not to beleive Jim, but when CCL first starter you always saw Joe on the boards & then its like he vanished. Then we started to see Steve around the forums in now you really don't see him anymore. To me it just seems more & more people are leaving the site & stores are closing. I'll keep my fingers crossed & hope for the best.

Currently there are 141 stores open. Ever since I first started on CCL, that number has always hovered between 135 and 150. It's true that a couple high-profile stores have closed, but the user base/membership is always increasing. I'm constantly filling orders from and communicating with brand new members.

Well I hope it comes sooner then the end of the year, if I dont make enough sales to cover the monthly cost, I will close my store as well. Traffic is the only thing I think is really lacking on this site, around 90k users/sellers/members to me is way to low especially since theres how many people on the planet with internet lol.

I've been noticing the same thing, and to be honest have started to get a little worried lately.

For now, CCL is still the best place to get comics online, and it still has a great community. However, that stock of comics and that community seems to be getting smaller and smaller and I'm starting to wonder if it's only a matter of time now.

I really hope not. And for now, I'm having faith because this truly has been (not just sucking up here, truth) the best comic buying site and best comic community on the web for me.
