Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin, Vol. 3-Ramba Ral




This is just a reminder that the third book in the excellent Mobile Suit Gundam The Origin series is to be released in less than a week! I strongly recommend per-ordering the books now as the prices of the first two increased $5 each after the initial release!


 
If you're new to this series here's what you need to know. 'The Origin' is a graphic novel retelling of the original 0079 saga. Two books have currently been released with another three confirmed titles (up to book 5) in the coming months. 'The Origin' series was written by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, Yoshiyuki Tomino and Hajime Yatate (The pseudonym for the entire Sunrise staff); and mechanical design by Kumo Okawara.

There have been some slight changes to the 0079 story, but overall it's very faithful to the original series. Each book is roughly 400-450 pages and each covers 4-5 episodes of the original series. 

The books are filled absolutely stunning artwork. 



You can still pick up the first and second books on amazon!


 
Gundam the Origin is a fantastic story with amazing art work, and by purchasing a copy it encourages Bandai, Sunrise and all the other companies to continue bringing, Gundam and Gunpla to the US!
