Dune: The Graphic Novel, Book 1 #SciFiSunday

IMG 9248

The original Dune series has had quite a few adaptations over the years – there are enough movie/tv series, comic books, sequels, prequels and fan fiction out there to keep you entertained for a LONG time! There is so much Dune content in the works this year too – the new Dune movie is scheduled to be released in 2021 in theaters (and controversially HBO MAX), and a prequel 12 part comic book series had its first installment released this year.

I just got my hands on Dune the graphic novel, book 1. This is the first in a 3 part adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. Illustrated by Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín this graphic novel was adapted by Brian Herbert along with his long time collaborator Kevin J Anderson.

The authors have said that their intention with this graphic novel is to be as faithful as possible to Frank Herbert’s 1965 original novel Dune. I read Dune periodically – its one of my favorite books, but it has been a few years since my last reread – Adafruit was kind enough to send me a copy of the new graphic novel to check out!

It’s gorgeous! It is the first of a 3 part series, very faithful to the book and they do a pretty great job breaking down the first third of Dune. During these trying times of uncertainty I’ve been struggling to focus and finish complete books – It was really great to get lost in the world of Dune in this way! I would highly recommend this graphic novel to any other Dune fans, or someone wanting to engage with Dune but perhaps finding the original text a little daunting. Its not a replacement for the original by any means but it is really entertaining and beautifully rendered.
