Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Manga to Go on Hiatus Due to Artist’s Health

This year’s 19th issue of Shogakukan’s Big Comic Superior magazine has announced that Yasuo Ohtagaki is putting his Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt manga on hiatus due tenosynovitis (inflaming surrounding the tendons). The magazine will announce later when the manga will return.

The manga’s story is set in the same One Year War in UC 0079 as the first Mobile Suit Gundam anime series. It begins with the battles between two ace pilots of the Principality of Zeon and the Earth Federation at the “Thunderbolt Sector,” a shoal zone with numerous wrecks of space colonies and warships.

Ohtagaki launched the manga in Big Comic Superior in March 2012, and Shogakukan published the 12th compiled book volume on July 30, 2018. VIZ Media published the manga’s eighth volume in English in August 2018.
