What is the Comic Market ?

The Comic Market is an event with
more than 30 years of history and 
boasts 35,000 dojinshi publishing 
circles and 500,000 general attendees.
Dojinshi circles come seeking to
distribute their creations to oth-
ers who share their interests.
The corporate dealers' area include 
corporations which understand
and support the ideals of the Comiket.
Most dojinshi circles do not aim to 
make a profit from their activities.
Their aim is to interact and communi-
cate with fellow participants
through their own creations.
Communication encourages creation 
though inspiration and thereby lays
the groundwork for even greater works
to come into being.This is 
the paramount ideal of the Comic
Market. The Comic Market Committee,
a non-profit organization,was
created for the specific purpose
of running these colossal market-
The Comic Market International
Desk is here to provide overseas
attendees with information and
answer any questions that might
arise. Please feel free to come
and ask for our help. We welcome
everyone who shares our enthusiasm
and interest in the dojinshi cul-
ture. All of us on the Comiket
staff hope you will enjoy your
visit to the Comic Market.
