I no expert on the world of Frank Herbert’s Dune, but David Lynch’s film is certainly a bit of a beautiful disaster. Marvel released it as a 3-issue miniseries, a mass market ‘pocketbook’ as well as in magazine sized format as part of the Marvel Comics Super Special series. Ralph Macchio wrote the script, and it’s not much easier to follow than the film but the real treat here is the artwork by Bill Sienkiewicz. In my humble opinion, this adaptation of Dune is the key point in Sienkiewicz’s evolution from his older style to the full on, more abstract style that we saw from Elektra: Assassin onwards. This is a very interesting piece for the comic book historian.
I have more copies of this mini than probably any other series in my collection. There was a time in my life when I was a total freak for DUNE and I read anything I could get my hand on about the novel and it's characters.
LONG LIVE THE FIGHTERS!!
