A modern science fiction classic, Larry Niven's Ringworld won the Hugo and Nebula Awards for best novel in 1970. Now this SF classic is adapted into a thrilling manga adventure by Robert Mandell and Sean Lam.

In Ringworld: The Graphic Novel, Part One, two-hundred-year-old human Louis Wu is recruited by a two-headed alien named Nessus to join him, a catlike warrior alien named Speaker, and the infinitely lucky human Teela Brown to explore an alien artifact.

They find a Ringworld, a ribbon millions of miles long built around a distant sun. The civilization has fallen into savagery, though, and after crashing into the Ringworld, Louis must come up with a clever plan to get back to known space, hundreds of light years away.

    Kind of an interesting story, and it does leave on a cliffhanger because it's only Part 1 of the first book. I found the story getting more exciting along the way, although I mostly couldn't stand the...
