Description

Kazuhiko is a young, but already deeply wounded black ops agent of a baroque, retro-tech future-pulled out of retirement to escort Sue, a mysterious waif, to a destination she alone knows. Sue and Kazuhiko have never met . . . yet she knows him, having grown up since the age of four with her only human contact two distant voices: that of her elderly "grandma," General Ko, and of Kazuhiko's dead girlfriend, Ora. And Sue has been kept in that cage all these years because of what she is, and what the Clover Leaf Project found her to be-a military top secret, and the most dangerous person in the world.

Clover is a long-out-of-print classic from Japan's shojo artist supergroup CLAMP!

Never before available in its original Japanese right-to-left reading orientation, Dark Horse not only brings Clover into English for the first time, but also collects all four of the original volumes into one reasonably priced omnibus, with a brand-new cover design especially for this edition!

"Kort, maar krachtig" by Marvin Liu (Netherlands) on Sep 16, 2011

Clover is kort verhaal, maar zeer uniek verteld met mooie, diepliggende en artistieke plaatjes. Dit is 1 van CLAMP's beste werken, jammer genoeg is het verhaal (nog) niet compleet
In Clover wordt de eerste 2 chapters de hoofdpunten van het verhaal beschreven, de laatste 2 chapters vult, met flashbacks, het verhaal helemaal aan.
Clover is iets dat iedereen gelezen moet hebben!

"wonderfully confusing" by ElenoreLoretje (Belgium) on Aug 19, 2011

As the other comments stated, this manga is a little bit confusing at times. And the storytelling is a bit different from your average manga, but it's worth while. I enjoyed it a lot though i think it's a personal matter. It's different, but different doesnt have to be bad does it ;)
see for yourself whether you like it ^^ you get a big lump of a book for this price and either way, the art is gorgeous :D

"Get your thinking cap out!" by Kitty Ocean (Netherlands) on Mar 29, 2010

I don't have any trouble with reading a volume 6 first, followed by a volume 3, volume 7, volume 2 etc.... But Clover honestly made me re-read the story over and over again! I've read this omnibus from front to back and back again, and only after the 4th time I fully understood the story... as far as you can understand this story, with the last volumes missing...
The art is beautiful, the story is touching and I got to admit... the crazy use of panels is refreshing. I so wished they would have included the ending in this big bundle, so I hope they will one day finish the story for those who can't read Japanese!

"Leuk voor Clamp-fans" by Taarz (Netherlands) on Mar 17, 2010

Clover is een minder bekende, maar daardoor niet minder goede serie van supergroep Clamp. Alleen jammer dat het verhaal met 4 delen nog niet is afgerond, het is te hopen dat de laatste twee delen binnenkort naar het Engels vertaald worden. Een ander klein minpuntje is dat het verhaal wel erg snel tussen verschillende perspectieven wisselt, maar dit komt waarschijnlijk door de korte hoofdstukken waaruit de serie opgebouwd is.
Verder zijn er genoeg positieve punten te noemen, zoals de gedetailleerde tekenstijl die we van Clamp gewend zijn, de psychologische en emotionele lading en het mysterie rond Sue.

De verhalen staan in niet-chronologische volgorde, dus je zal het verhaal wel meerdere keren moeten lezen om het te snappen. Een aanrader voor degenen die al bekend zijn met Clamp, voor beginners is het waarschijnlijk te moeilijk om te volgen.
