Gundam: The Origin, Volume 3 by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko
In this third installment of the popular manga series, the ambushed rookie crew of the Federation's newest ship White Base must defend themselves against one of Zeon's greatest fighters the Red Comet, Char Aznable! Does Amuro have what it takes to protect his forces from this menace? When he and the Gundam return to White Base exhausted, and the bullets start to fly, will these rookies keep their cool and achieve victory? Animerica's "Best of the Best" issue chose Yasuhiko as the "animator most deserving of wider recognition."
