Humanity must rally together to save the Earth when its existence is threatened by the violent death throes of the sun. Cixin Liu's 'The Wandering Earth' is now realised as a graphic novel for the first time. 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. 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. How to reach our new solar system is more difficult. Spaceships stand no chance in open space, and the nearest inhabitable planet lies hundreds of thousands of years away. If humanity leaves Earth behind, our continued existence is impossible. The only way to survive is to find a way to propel Earth out of its orbit. But how?

Reviews for Cixin Lius The Wandering Earth Graphic Novel

'The whole project offers a fascinating insight to a 'new' author, with the graphic novels serving as a gateway drug to a traditionally inaccessible voice in the realm of SFF' * SciFiNow * 'The graphic novel format enables both ends of the spectrum to be demonstrated wonderfully, with crisp, clear artwork from Stefano Raffaele that fairly glows on the page. Scene-setting panels that break across the top of a double page give voice to fabulous vistas of future cities, scenes of natural disasters, epic sunrises and large-scale technological installations. They are panels that draw in the eye and that you can spend quite some time absorbing ... This is a thoroughly enjoyable and engrossing graphic novel that has whetted my appetite further for the forthcoming editions in the series' * SF Crowsnest * 'A unique blend of scientific and philosophical speculation, politics and history, conspiracy theory and cosmology' -- George R.R. Martin 'Wildly imaginative, really interesting ... The scope of it was immense' -- Barack Obama 'A milestone in Chinese science fiction' * New York Times * 'A marvellous melange of awe-inspiring scientific concepts, clever plotting and quirky yet plausible characters ... Exhilarating, mind-stretching' * TLS * 'China's answer to Arthur C. Clarke' * The New Yorker *
