Comic Market (or Comiket) is a large Japanese doujinshi (independent fan works) convention which takes place biannually (summer and winter). The upcoming event will be Comiket 96, taking place from August 9 to August 12, 2019.
“Comiket Plus” is an official magazine prepared by the Comic market Preparation Committee designed to support the event and provide information to help people—typically new attendees—enjoy the event. Additionally, the magazine covers a variety of topics related to comics and otaku culture, which will also be of interest to experienced participants to Comiket.
Volume 12 of Comiket Plus is centered around Persona 5.
