The graphic novel Nausciaa is Hayao Miyazaki's Lord of the Rings. If you watched the old 1980's animated movie Nausicaa, and found yourself longing for more, definitely check these out. The movie is only the first volume and a half of this seven volume series. You won't be let down with this one!

Miyazaki writes an amazing fantasy tale as a manga which in my view ranks right up there with Tolkien. Nausicaa is the story of a young princess who has a powerful connection to nature and a strong belief that peace is possible in a post-apocalyptic world covered by a poisonous forest across vast reaches of radioactive wasteland. The patches of human civilization war against each other, caught up in human politics and ambition. The art is beautiful and the storytelling engaging and unexpected.

Nuasicaa is a girl in a post apocalypse world, where the forests are poison and strange and death lurks everywhere. Humanity are few and live in small enclaves like that of Nausicaa. Her home is the Valley of the Wind and war is coming. Unknown to her she is going to have a pivotal role to play in the future.I liked it, while it has some pretty vicious moments there's a sense of wonder about it that Miyazaki has in many of his other animations like My Neighbor Totoro and others.

Nausicaa is an incredible character, strong and determined but soft-hearted and hopeful and young. In vol.1, a war is starting between the outer kingdoms and the Emporer. Nausicaa goes to war, but she is fighting more foes than any, with her telepathic bond with animals, and her understanding of the monstrous forest. Nausicaa has hope for the future, and she is fierce if anything tries to stand in her way! The pictures are unconventional and well done, with the storyline complex and the characters true. MUST READ!!
