The Sun is dying. Helium will soon permeate its core, triggering a violent explosion, and its burning-hot diameter will increase until it has consumed everything that stands in its way.
As long as we remain in its path, humanity stands no chance.
Interstellar emigration is the only way out. Reaching a consensus on a destination has been easy: the only viable target is Proxima Centauri. It is the star closest to our own, a mere 4.3 light-years away.
Thats at least the short description of this book.
Head of Zeus Ltd. is the English publisher of this Graphic novel “the wandering earth”. After I do watched the movie and also know some of those Model Kits, I was thinking that I do have to read the Graphic novel, too.
An international collaboration involving 26 writers and illustrators from 14 different countries have transformed 15 of Cixin Liu’s – ‘China’s answer to Arthur C. Clarke’ (New Yorker) – award-winning stories into graphic novels and that’s the first I have read.
Those who know the movie may wonder. Both are starting at the same time as the earth was already moving. Nevertheless, those events are within this Graphic novel more within the background and are referring more to another topic, which I will not tell you, to avoid Spoiler.
Sure the omnipresent Dangerous situation for the earth is always available, but it is not the storyline I was expecting.
The German Publisher Splitter was delivering a brilliant hardcover and it is similar to other Hardcover books
as Head of Zeus Ltd. has not published the book now, I simply know that it will be a Trade paperback and it should be around 15$/GBP.
within the German version, the pictures are always fully colored and I do expect the same for the English version. IF the English version has those 2 double pages as well is totally unknown at this time.
All things considered a wonderful book and for every SciFi Fan a MUST HAVE.
Even some known Authors and other VIPS have commented on the original book.
Barack Obama – ‘Wildly imaginative, really interesting … The scope of it was immense!” ,
George R.R. Martin was mentioning “A unique blend of scientific and philosophical speculation, politics and history, conspiracy theory and cosmology”
As the Author is of the Book Cixin Liu will be more often Read within my Page for a review of his book, the G-Novel or the Movie itself or Model-Kits, i do decided to add an own category for him and publish it at the end of this post.
