    Ben De Bono

    This is fine in the same way the Syfy miniseries was fine. It goes through the plot and serves as an adequate visualization of Frank Herbert's masterpiece. It also fails to remotely come close to matching its source material's greatness. If you're a fan of Dune, you'll probably enjoy it for what it is. If you've never read Dune, read this if you want but don't for one second think it's an adequate substitution for reading the actual novel. It's not. Not even close

    My copy came in on time and in great condition. Book itself is beautiful Kevin J Anderson and Brian Herbert did a great job breaking down the 1st 3rd of the best sci-fi books. The art by Raúl Allen and Patricia Martin is fantastic. I Highly recommend this book for people discovering Dune and life-long fans!

    Perfectly adequate for what it is (the quick and illustrated version for those who have not read the original). But nothing more than that.

    I LOVE Dune and I was super excited about this graphic novel adaptation. Its very faithful to the book, as expected considering the involvement of Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson. And, probably due in part to that faithfulness, its going to be a long wait for this to be complete - this is the first of a 3-part adaptation, and the second is slated for early 2022. But I felt like something was missing...

But I felt like something was missing... Reading this graphic novel I didn’t get a sense of what the mentats are, or the physical prowess of the Bene Gesserit, and I didn’t feel much of a connection to any of the characters. The bones of the story are there, but... none of the characters felt larger than life the way they do in the book. Duncan Idaho was barely mentioned, the scene with Gurney Halleck was lackluster - there was no sense of the connection between Gurney and Paul. The idea that Jessica chose Paul’s gender was there, but only vaguely, not as an indication of the BG control over their bodies. Even the Baron didn’t seem as evil as I expected, partly because I didn’t feel the artist really drew him as physically repulsive - the suspensors were only hinted at. Bottom line is that I really didn’t feel like the art was worth 1000 words here, and that means a lot of detail and back story was missing.

    Awesome visualization of the first book! The art filled out some of the holes in my memory from when I first read the original novel ~6 years ago, and man, does it look good. Being a graphic novel, the text is considerably condensed from the original source. This gives the plot a bit of a rushed sensation, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend reading the graphic novel as a substitute for the original.

The art filled out some of the holes in my memory from when I first read the original novel ~6 years ago, and man, does it look good. Being a graphic novel, the text is considerably condensed from the original source. This gives the plot a bit of a rushed sensation, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend reading the graphic novel as a substitute for the original. Some famous Dune terminology, such as stillsuits, are elaborated on pretty thoroughly, others though, such as thumpers and lasguns, are briefly glossed over. This would be confusing for a Dune initiate reading without a glossary, as there is little context in those examples. However, for a reader familiar with the Dune universe, this book is truly a feast for the eyes and a great rehash of Dune's plot (up to where Book 1 ends). This gem left me hungry for more and I'm really looking forward to reading Book 2 (in Spring of 2022 *tears*). Highly recommend for anyone with one foot in the Dune series. Killer stuff.

    This volume is a fine reminder of the greatness of Frank Herbert's original novel. The world creation, the complex politics, the depth and voices of these characters: they're all magnificent. The comic script generally does that service (though occasionally it constrains the script in its Star Wars-like cut scenes and its synopses of facts). And the art is utilitarian and professional, but only rarely breathtaking. All told, this is a fine way to remind oneself of the magnificence that is Dune.

    While not the original, this is a fantastic adaptation of the story and the feel of the novel. Read this then read the novel or read the novel and then read this. I loved the visuals in this adaptation and am looking forward to the second volume

    Sweeping visuals but the dialogue choices made it hard to invest in any of the characters.

    Not as in depth as the novel. But a fun read and great introduction to an epic novel

    Good graphic novel adaptation. Note this is only the first 3rd of the story from the first Dune book. The art is well done and the book is high quality.

    I am not usually one who gets into graphic novels, but this was the exception. Stunning visuals and complacent dialogue, best way to some it up.
