Called "a cornerstone of anime SF," Japan's Gundam franchise begun in 1979 now boasts a worldwide cult of devotees. In the Gundam universe, the Earth Federation battle rebellious off-world colonies, and "Newtype" warriors with evolved mentality pilot gargantuan suits of high-tech armor.
This novelization presents creator Yoshiyuki Tomino's unvarnished vision for his own core series, with richer characterizations and a shocking ending. Controversial when it first appeared in English in 1990, the trilogy is being brought to fans in a single, re-edited volume, with a new introduction by Gundam expert Mark Simmons.
Written by Yoshiyuki Tomino.
