Comiket is a dōjinshi fair founded in 1975 by Yoshihiro Yonezawa and friends with only around 600 attendees. That number has since grown to 550,000 people. It is held in August and January every year in Tokyo. It is a convention primarily for selling self-published works ranging from musical covers to stories to art.

Sellers are referred to as 'circles', and are listed in the convention catalogue in circle cuts.
