I need your help

I am searching for the title of a manga i first saw in the early 1980s. I saw it many times and still remember it due to its unique caracters. I lost track of it however and have been trying to remember its name.

Here are clues
the principal caracter is a girl. she has a pet, a small lizard. She wears a scarf and handles a rifle very accurately.
The other main caracter are giant worms. Those have dozens of eyes at their head that are either green (when peaceful) or red (when in rage). The girl I mentioned above has the power to communicate with those worms.
Another giant caracter is a ancient God, made of fire (or lava) that the humans woke up to fight the worms

I unfortunately forgot the main plot, and any caracter name. I do remember a couple of scenes:
- a big plane in the coulds
- the final scene where the the girls is almost killed by the worms. The worms however realized what they did and carry the girl on their body. At that point she wakes up and meets a strange caracter that resembles Jesus Christ

I would appreciate any help...
Thanks

Man... it sounds a lot like Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, except with slight differences...

ex.org review -- this has a few images from the manga.

Does this look familiar at all?

Definitely sounds like Nausicaa.
You can find the manga in major bookstores like Barnes & Noble, Borders or B. Dalton.

I have to agree with everyone saying "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind". Here are some links for the manga:

- Amazon .com: Nausicaa Box Set
- Barnes & Noble: Nausicaa Box Set

Hope this helps!
