MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM ORIGIN GN VOL 1: ACTIVATION

(W) Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, Yoshiyuki Tomino  (A) Hajime Yatate

In a civil war, half of humanity is wiped out, and Zeon's army of Zaku mobile units is the decisive weapon. With the Federation's first Gundam out of action, Amuro miraculously stumbles on a second unit. Now, in control of a machine with unparalleled destructive power, will Amuro's actions save the colony's survivors - or destroy them? The biggest name in Japanese science-fiction - Gundam - returns with one of its creators retelling its origins 25 years after the series debuted. To honor this modern classic, Gundam: The Origin will be pulbished as a set of hardcovers featuring dozens of color pages and essays from the biggest names of Japanese animation and manga.

Gundam. A robot. A genre. A legacy. Like the Velvet Underground, Kirby's Fourth World and Blade Runner, the impact of this work is not able to be accurately measured until one steps back, looks at it through the decades and sees the raw power of such and original and unique idea that has permeated into the very being of a whole generation of creators. Reading Gundam for the first time is like listening to Muddy Waters after hearing nothing but Rolling Stones and coming to that shocking realization that what you thought was so primal, so powerful, was nothing more than a watered downed version of a true original.
