Attn Manga fans

Hey guys I remember ages ago I read about a certain manga convention in Japan but I can't remember what it's called. I was wondering whether you could help me out.

It's basically an amateur convention where unpublished mangaka present and sell manga that they have written/drawn and gotten printed by themselves. I think a lot of it may have been fan art type stuff but there was also original work on display.

Ring a bell?

    The convention is Comiket, and the amateur manga is doujinshi. Its closest relatives in the West are zines, the occasional still-existing indie comics, and webcomics.
