Yasuo Ohtagaki has announced that he will resume the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Gaiden manga on February 8, 2019. The manga has been on hiatus since May 2018.
The Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Gaiden manga is a collection of short stories focusing on different mobile suits that appear in Hobby Japan’s Thunderbolt Mechanics magazine. Ohtagaki launched the manga on the eBigComic4 website in December 2015. Shogakukan published the manga’s second compiled book volume in April 2017.
Ohtagaki resumed the main Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt manga in Shogakukan’s Big Comic Superior magazine in December 2018. The manga was on hiatus since September 2018 due to tenosynovitis (inflammation surrounding the tendons).
