"An unprecedented epic!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Hayao Miyazaki had written (and drawn) an epic tale of a dark future of decay and how one young women and her friends try too find the light in the midst of war and hatered plaguing a world polluted by the super weapons remembered asĀ gods.

Description

An epic fantasy tale written and illustrated by the legendary director Hayao Miyazaki! In a long-ago war, humankind set off a devastating ecological disaster. Thriving indistrial societies disappeared. The earth is slowly submerging beneath the expanding Sea of Corruption, an enormous toxic forest that creates mutant insects and releases a miasma of poisonous spores into the air.At the periphery of the sea, tiny kingdoms are scattered on tiny parcels of land. Here lies the Valley of the Wind, a kingdom of barely 500 citizens; a nation given fragile protection from the decaying sea's poisons by the ocean breezes; and home to Nausicaa. Nausicaa, a young princess, has an empathic bond with the giant Ohmu insects and animals of every creed. She fights to create tolerance, understanding and patience among empires that are fighting over the world's remaining precious natural resources.
