Comic Market, more commonly known as Comiket, is a semiannual doujinshi convention, usually held at Tokyo Big Sight in Japan in August and December every year.
A grassroots market focused on the sale of doujin (self-published) works, Comiket is a not-for-profit fan convention administered by the volunteer-run Comic Market Preparatory Committee (ComiketPC). Inaugurated on 21 December 1975 with an estimated 700 attendees, Comiket has since grown to become the largest fan convention in the world.
