You like a lot of the same authors I like, though I don't care for Donaldson. Yes, definitely try Nausicaa. Deep story, only six volumes, and about as apocolyptic as you can get and still have characters to tell a story with. The art is rather dense, though, a bit atypical of manga, which is usually more spare. Miyazaki is better known for his anime movies, e.g. Spirited Away, which I highly recommend.

Try Rumiko Takahashi - Ranma 1/2 is easy to find, or Inu Yasha, but more specifically I think you'd like some of her Rumic World stories, e.g. The Laughing Target. I'd also recommend 3x3 Eyes, which is sort of horror-comedy, with a lot of quirkiness.

If you're interested in watching some anime, I would definitely recommend Neon Genesis Evangelion based on your reading tastes, but the manga isn't much like the anime. Same with Vision of Escaflowne-- I think you'd like the anime, but the manga is completely different (and not very good).
