What runs through my mind is, in the 45 years since its first publication, this drek is the best they could come up with?

Having read Ringworld and the three sequels many years ago and many times since, I was quite excited to see this (and part 1). Oh, how disappointing it was. There was an amazing opportunity here to visualise the Ringworld in a graphic novel format and really bring to life the vast expanse and almost infinite vistas of the Ringworld.
Unfortunately, the artwork is shockingly poor - Nessus looks like two childish socks, and the humans look like really poor Anime characters. Additionally, none of the descriptive prose is carried through as boxouts or additional dialogue. This really spoils the substance of the story.
The final straw, in volume two, was the introductory summary, stating that the Ringworld was a few hundred times the area of the surface of the Earth. Clearly, the author/editor had not actually proof-read properly, despite the dimensions of Ringworld being given already.
All in all, if you have read Ringworld already, avoid this. If you have NOT read Ringworld, and are considering reading these first - DON'T. Read the actual novels. They are so much better.
