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.

This is the research journal of Nele Noppe. Besides the occasional squee about A:tLA, I mostly talk about the cultural economy of fanwork, comparative research on Japanese dojinshi and English-language fanwork, and legal, economic and cultural policy issues related to dojinshi and to fanwork in general. Anything too short or incoherent to post here goes into Twitter or the notes and quotes book.
