As you may know, some of here at Anno Hates You are dedicated CLAMP fanboys. CLAMP is a group of 4 women that produce a multitude of Manga (maybe Paladin can help me out on the names of the women and what each does).
My personal favorite of CLAMP's work is X/1999, the story of Kamui and his struggle to either fight or embrace his desitiny as either a Dragon of Heaven or a Dragon of Earth. This particular story has still not been finished up, but is currently at 18 Volumes, and is close to wrapping up. The plethera of characters, there are like 16-17 main characters with their own unique past and story, is one of the main draws in my opinion.
What are your favorite CLAMP stories? How do the CLAMP TV adaptations compare to the original manga? Go on, get goin...discuss!

The names of CLAMP's members are: Ageha Ohkawa, Tsubaki Nekoi, Satsuki Igarashi, and Mokona. As for what they do, it varies from project to project, but Ohkawa-san seems to be the primary writer, and Mokona seems to do a lot of the SD drawings. Again, it varies quite a bit from project-to-project.
As for my favorites, I'm giving the nod to Legend of Chun Hyang, Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, and xxxHOLiC.
I have to give a shout out to my main manju bun....Mokona Modoki! He is a great and, in my opinion, one of the best CLAMP characters. He shows up in Magic Knight Rayearth, to guide the girls to save Cephiro, but then came back in the crossover stories, xxxHolic and Tsubasa: Resevoir Chronicle, though he has more of a role in Tsubasa. He is energetic and cheerful, and provides some cute and funny moments throughout Rayearth adn Tsubasa.
As someone who admittedly doesn't read alot of manga, I'm mostly familiar with Clamp through the anime versions of their work. My particular favorite of what few I've seen is definetly the X TV series, which I almost gave no thought to after the crappiness of the movie.
