Adam (Ish, A Gleaming) joins In This Issue... to discuss the first issue of animation legend Hayao Miyazaki's main contribution to comics, Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind—specifically the 1988 first issue, which was released in what we might call "Prestige Format" (please excuse me while I tie an onion to my belt). Lots and lots of hot takes about Miyazaki in general and Nausicaa in particular in this extra-long episode, as we're both huge fans of this work and find it impossible not to wax rhapsodic over it. We do hope you'll excuse our enthusiasm! Tune in next time for another close read with In This Issue...
