Description


The biggest name in Japanese science fiction—Gundam—returns with one of its creators retelling its origins 25 years after the series debuted. Caught in the crossfire of a space civil war, teenager Amuro Ray accidentally finds a new mobile weapon—the RX-78 Gundam.

In the seventh volume of Gundam: THE ORIGIN, the Zeon have begun to show their might against the Earth Federation. For the longest time there has been a belief that the Zeon have evolved into a new form of man. These Spacenoids have not been forced to the stars; they were destined to them. And while there are still Earth colonies across the solar system, the Zeon were chosen to unify them all. Ultimately, the politics of space and the oppression shown by The Confederation has driven the Zeon to make some brutal choices . . . some of them akin to genocide!
