Overview

Hayao Miyazaki was a budding filmmaker in 1982 when he agreed to collaborate on a project with the popular Japanese anime magazine Animage. This was Nausicaa, which would make Miyazaki's reputation as much as his 11 films and TV shows. Set in the far future, Nausicaa visualizes an Earth radically changed by ecological disaster. Strange human kingdoms survive at the edge of the Sea of Corruption, a poisonous fungal forest. Nausicaa, a gentle young princess, has a telepathic bond with the giant mutated insects of this dystopia. Her task is to negotiate peace between kingdoms battling over the last of the world's precious natural resources. Nausicaa took Miyazaki 12 years to create, in part because he worked with few or no assistants, doing both the writing and drawing using a meticulously detailed style that critics have compared to the work of the French artist Moebius.

    An incredible peice of literature

    Nausicaä is one of the few things that truly deserves to be called a graphic novel. By the japanese master of animation Hayao Miyazaki, this story transcends all of the stereotypes of manga and american comics to bring a poignant, epic, and beatifully crafted story. It is the tale of a young girl, Nausicaä, the princess of a small settlement known as The Valley Of The Wind in a postapocalyptic world where the greatest commodity is old-world technology and poisonous miasma spreads across the world threatening the survival of teh remnants of mankind. While many stories will have a false ending and then continue on simply to drag it on for a few more issues, while you wish it would just end. Nausicaä is not liek this at all. When one problem is solved, it leads to many more, and a deeper insite into the wolrd and it's characters, culminating in a breathtaking climax that will literally blow you away. Miyazaki has the incredible talent to not make 'good guys and bad guys', and simply two equally valid sides of a conflict, something much harder to do than it sounds. While a war story on the exterior, Nausicaa is reallly a story about the birth of a pascifist, and the rebirth of mankind. Absolutely outstanding, this ranks up there with many of the greatest books of our time despite being in 'comic book' form. Something everyone should read at least once in their life.

    Don't be an enemy of hope, read this series.

    A decade of work Miyazaki put into this tale of a girl who tries to save man from himself. In any time or location, Miyazaki's philosophical message challenges others to look at themselves, their beliefs, and their place in the world. The setting, however, a decaying post-apocalyptic world where man faces extinction every day, is so finely detailed and crafted, it is as much a main character as Nausicaa herself. I cannot think of a finer peice of comic literature. This one will leave you altered.
