I have read the Kodansha's manga of "Gundam 0080". The
story was drawn in typical Japanese manga style (i.e.,
graphically striking w/o regards of proportion), so if
you are looking for OVA-style illustration on this
"0080" manga, you will be disappointed. Yet, it has
some additional segments exclusive to this book, such
as Lt. Col. Killing's fleet was wiped out by a wave of
Federal Force's MS, including FA-78-1 "Full Armored
Gundam" that does not appear on the OVA. At the end of
the book also includes a short segment of 0080's MS
spec. My verdict for this book: stay away if you are
not a manga fan.
