It's never too early to talk about Comiket 89. Anyone going? Has anyone bought their plane tickets yet?
Never been to Comiket, but I want to skip Christmas and go to Japan instead. Been to Japan before to meet the Touhou Grand Wizard.
I still can't find some albums from C88 and there is already thread dedicated to C89
Anybody got a dump of the print?

First time going there this year and looking at the catalog is really overwhelming. I can't decide anything based on these tinny pictures and I doubt I can just freely move around and look at stuff when I'm there.
I guess I have two dozen artists marked on the map, but they all make porn. Getting animator doujins and artbooks would be nice too.
Unless you're into gay stuff, you can use the first day to figure out the layout and location of Big Sight, pick up company merch, and accommodate yourself to the environment to path better on the days that have bigger name circles.
And unless you're taking a group, don't expect to get much of what you want unless you hit up places like Mandarake, Lashinban or K-books with an aftermarket premium.
I did C87 as my first and going to C89 this year.
>Mandarake, Lashinban or K-books
I am confused. I only occasionally use Mandarake for digital products. Otherwise, I use Toranoana or Melonbooks, with Suruga-ya for old (2+ years) items.
How do they all compare?
They're all stores with secondhand sections in Akiba and they all get packed with event shit the day of or day after. They're the stores you want to hit up after the day's Comiket if you missed out on anything.
In my experience, they all price differently with Lashinban pricing the cheapest with least stock while Mandarake has more expensive big name artist stuff. K-books had more individual doujins.
I wish he toned down the prolapse a bit, though.
