MangaBlog's Brigid Alverson (this time reporting at Robot6): the CLAMP "Mangettes" project Gate 7, an attempt to create a new, internationally-released work by one of the top names in Japan, are officially on hold for the time being, according to the publisher behind the project: Dark Horse.
The CLAMP mangettes were originally announced back at Comic-Con International in 2007 as a project to be released multinationally, in more than just Japan and the US. It was going to be released in monthly chunks of 80 pages; the title was a pun-- "ettes" being a suffix for small, and "getsu" meaning "montH" in Japan.
Details trickled out very, VERY slowly, and just over a year ago the title (Gate 7) and cover were released on Amazon. Unfortunately, word is now that the Mangettes are on hold as far as Dark Horse is concerned-- they're working on their CLAMP omnibuses first --and the listing originally on Amazon.co.jp is now gone.
This is really a shame; I was looking forward to CLAMP being simul-released, and in print rather than online-- although online would have been better than not at all. On the other hand, some of the framework is still here, so perhaps the work will come out somehow, somewhen.
