Does Clamp make incredibaly awsome manga?
I havent got around to reading any Clamp stuff, because im tied up in Love Hina at the moment.
I was wondering this because i went manga shopping, and a couple came in and bought like 10 volumes of various thing all by Clamp.
They started discussing manga and the guy said he wasnt actually into one of the series he was reading, and the girl replied but its Clamp.
Are they just heavy fans or is Clamp's stuff really that awsome?
Thx, and can you reccomend any Clamp stuff?

The arthouse Clamp aim towards as much to both genres and their artwork is really impressive which appeals from bishoujo to the unforgettable mascots.

So far, the only collection I have from Clamp are Magic knight Rayearth (a graphic novel and halfway of the second season), RG Veda (on LD) and Card Captor Sakura. There's others out there though I was too damn lazy to look into it (or buy any from Clamp for almost 2 years).

- Magic Knight Rayearth
- Card Captor Sakura
- Wish

Depends on who you ask. Personally I think that as comics their post-Card Captor Sakura material is too geared towards following trends but the work they did before that is just terrific stuff. As just plain look at it and see art they're a terrific bunch of women who draw the pants of some men in Japanese comics.
If by high art you mean it's fun to smoke pot and look at Mike Mignola's art, I'm in total agreement.

YES. 90% of my manga collection are CLAMP. the only other manga ive read that isnt CLAMP is Love Hina, Gon and GTO.

anyhow, any manga by CLAMP is better than its anime counterpart (to the titles that do have an anime counterpart). if its CLAMP, youre better off reeading the manga. anyhow, recomendation:

-Clover (my fave)
-CLAMP School Detectives

i havent finished reading all of Angelic Layer and Rayearth though
