Comic Market – better known as "Comiket" – is the Japanese bi-annual 3-day indie manga event. Not only is there plenty of manga, but there's cosplay, too. Lots of it.
This past weekend in Japan was the 86th official Comic Market, better known as Comiket. You don't hold an event 86 times without some strange urban legends cropping up.
Comic Market, aka Comiket is a bi-annual 3-day indie manga event. But it's not just about manga. As the biggest and most famous indie manga event in Japan, cosplayers come out in droves. And this year's winter Comiket 85 was no different.

Comic Market, or Comiket, is a twice yearly event that showcases self-published comics. In the past, it's also showcased obscene amounts of flesh. Real flesh.
Last weekend, the Comic Market (Comiket) roared through Tokyo. Held since 1975, the bi-annual Comiket is the world's largest DIY-self-published comic book fair.
