If you are at all interested in Japanese comics, perhaps you’ve heard of the Comic Market, or Comike (I’m not sure where they got that abbreviation, either). For three days, twice a year, thousands and thousands of geeks converge on the Tokyo Big Site convention center to buy and sell homemade comic books of surprisingly high quality. This is a tiny, tiny fraction of the people in attendance, at the cosplay square. It was a truly overwhelmingly geeky experience.
