    This was fabulous! The art was stunning, and the story was perfectly adapted to the format, giving you the story without huge blocks of text or leaving out anything important. ...

    Reviewing this graphic novel is like reviewing the actual novel Dune. It does not cover the entire book in just this, Book 1, but it takes its time in what it does touch and highlights, what I feel, are the most important notes in the story. Dune is a science-fiction classic that is...

    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&apos...

    A faithful adaptation of the grand daddy of all space opera's that I wish had just a bit more of the original mysticism and majesty. I wish the entire thing had looked a bit more like the cover. Part of my attraction to Dune is the mystery that permeates the story and something ab...

    I so enjoy great graphic novels, and having/reading/enjoying one of a favorite story is bliss!! Very well done with some striking art. ...

    Overall, pretty good. The text could be better arranged, as some of the words cut off in awkward places, and the dialogue seems stilted and not very fluid at times, but a good first act of what promises to be a worthy adaptation of the Dune series. ...

    As a Dune fan a new graphic novel was not something I am going to pass up, neither am I missing the new 12 part comic serie House of Atreides which is by now has 2 of its 12 installments released. This was supposed to be a great year for Dune fans with a Movie, graphic novel, comic bo...

    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 D...

    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 t...

    Starting with a softball for 2021. For some reason, as heretical as it sounds, I just could NOT get into Dune (the novel). I recognize its brilliance and how it paved the way for the genre, but just something about Herbert's prose threw me off. Like, making my eyes glaze over a...

    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 really enjoyed this one. I read the 'House' prequel trilogy about 15 years ago and fell in love with the world of Dune but never got around to reading the main series. It's a universe that is so dense and is kind of the originator of House vs. House political drama in ...

    Did a video review: https://youtu.be/6XHUDjjBwks Overall i was disapointed by the book, it's ok in retelling Dune, but it could easily have taken much better use of the medium. Did a video review: https://youtu.be/6XHUDjjBwks Overall i was disapointed by the book, it's ok...

    I dutifully read the first six books of the Dune series back in the '80s to earn my sci fi geek cred, despite the fact that I found them intensely boring. (Around the same time, I masochistically slogged through Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant.) This sti...

    To be clear: I've never read the original Dune. But it's on my to-do list. I read this graphic version because, years ago when I tried the original, I couldn't get into it. I had trouble tracking the characters and staying engaged with the level of detail in such a mo...

    I've never read Dune, the massive novel, so I was excited that the graphic novel was released in a more digestible format. There are some things modified in translation that I'm not going to address as I have not seen any of the films, television adaptations, or read the main...

    As a fan of the book, and someone willing to see the good in the '80s film version and even the early 2000s SyFy miniseries, this was probably not the adaptation for me as the art, while well executed, didn't provide the depth of detail I would usually search for when revisit...

    Jan 04, 2021
    The first book of the official Dune comic book adaptation that remains truly loyal to its source material with some changes but doesn't take advantage of the medium to turn the classic epic science-fiction masterpiece into a just as exciting and classic comic book story as it suff...

    Not as good as the book. But if you liked the book, or at least the story it told, this graphic versions adds some additional context I missed in the text version. 4 stars. ...

    I?m so glad I picked up this graphic novel version of Dune before attempting to finish the novel again. The artwork added an extra layer of understanding for me when it came to interpreting the text. About halfway through I really found myself interested in the story but it still fel...

    I haven?t read ?Dune? or any of Frank Herbert?s other works, so I came to the graphic novel with new eyes. I wish I had a little more context throughout, and I think it would?ve helped to utilize more dialogue to describe this world. I realize that ?Dune? is considered th...

    I wanted to read this, but the Herbert/Anderson team caused me to have some trepidation, so instead of rushing out to buy it, I borrowed it from hoopla to read first. It is a solid, faithful adaptation. The first part starts with the preparation to make the move from Caladan to Arra...
