The convention Rio Comicon starts today in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the exhibition CLAMP – As Rainhas do Mangá (CLAMP – The Queens of Manga) will take place until Sunday. This is the same exhibition that was originally held in Paris in 2009.
Tickets cost R$ 20,00 for each day at the event’s entrance (students pay half price). Check their official website for more info.
I will be there on Saturday, hope to meet some of you there! 😉
Kobato. licensed in Brazil:
The Kobato. manga has been licensed in Brazil by JBC. The manga will be published every 3 months starting in October. The price will be R$ 10,90 for a full tankoubon format (unlike Tsubasa and XXXHOLiC), but no color pages.
This is the 10th CLAMP title to be published in Brazil, and they remain being the only manga authors with that many titles licensed in the country.
Here’s the cover for the Brazilian edition:
Also, the Card Captor Sakura manga, which was the first CLAMP title published in Brazil, will be re-released by JBC in a special edition still this year. The new release will be in full tankoubon format (unlike the original edition) and will have color pages. Release date and price are still undecided.

It was announced in this year’s New York Anime Fest that the new Code Geass project, Code Geass GAIDEN: Boukoku no Akito, will be released next year. CLAMP is in charge of the original character concept for this project as well.
The Code Geass and R2 seasons will be re-released in a new DVD Box early next year and an exclusive promotional video of Code Geass GAIDEN: Boukoku no Akito will come with it.
The official website of BLOOD-C has the 2nd DVD and Blu-Ray cover, which was drawn by CLAMP.
