Comiket as a market for fanworks

Introductory post about Comiket, written for TWC's Symposium blog. Since most people have at least some idea of what generally happens at cons, I decided to skip descriptions of the cosplay and such in favor of focusing on how fanworks are sold at Comiket and how Japanese dojinshi fans relate to rights holders. That should be a bit more interesting. I got some numbers out of the Comiket catalog about what people earn by producing and selling their dojinshi (in short, the majority lose money), which I'll talk about in more detail over here in a week or so.
