Dark Horse Comics announced it would be publishing a new original manga with the minds and talents behind CLAMP.
If you are like me and don’t know what the hell CLAMP is, it is comprised of Satsuki Igarashi, Mokona, Tsubaki Nekoi and Ageha Ohkawa.—the manga-ka all-female supergroup known to their millions of fans worldwide.
The new manga from CLAMP will be launched in the US, Japan, and Korea at the same time.
The story will come out in a small digest consisting of about eighty pages each, which will then be collected into trade paperbacks with bonus material. CLAMP and Dark Horse are coining the bilingual term Mangettes to describe this innovative new format for manga distribution. This digest format, or Mangette, signifies CLAMP’s personal wish to reach their large international readership by now speaking to them directly as artists through Dark Horse, and on a basis of equality with their Japanese fans.
More word on this series as information becomes available from Dark Horse.
