Me estreno como colaborador de El Biblionauta con una obra que me hace especial ilusión. Esta adaptación en formato cómic de la película, dirigida por David Lynch, basada en la novela de Frank Herbert, está considerada una joya, al tiempo que rareza, por los amantes de las viñetas. Estamos hablando de la fusión de tres de las mentes más personales y experimentales, cada uno en su ámbito.

Artwork: 5
Story: 4

In essence a precis of the David Lynch movie but oh, my soul, captures the best moments from the movie and the book in an astoundingly poignant manner. The artwork is astonishing, this must be Bill Sienkiewicz' finest work. Every panel could be blown up and mounted as a poster, simply mind-blowing.

It's impossible to recreate the epic scope of the books or the movie, for that matter, in such a condensed format, so those who are not familiar with the Dune story will find this a v

Without a doubt, Bill Sienkiewicz's art makes this the best movie adaptation Marvel ever published.

This is a bit difficult to review: it is a comic adaptation of the film adaptation of the novel Dune. The novel is one of my all-time favorite books. The film is entertaining only in that it is so bad it's great to make fun while watching. So, this adaptation of an adaptation is flawed from the very beginning. The only reason it gets a 3-star rating is the beautiful art by Bill Sienkiewicz. Pretty high praise for Sienkiewicz in that the art alone saves this from being something to line a birdcag ...more

Fantastic. Very faithful to David Lynch's film adaption in artwork and story. The best thing of all is there are some scenes that weren't in the film (some deleted scenes and some others that we don't know if they were even filmed). Recommended for Dune fans, collectors and comic fans.
