Editorial Reviews

Review

“…it excels in broad action shots, such as the first spotting of a massive sandworm maw. This efficient take will whet appetites for more adventures to come.”
Publishers Weekly

“Boasting eye-popping art from Raúl Allén and Patricia Martin… Dune: The Graphic Novel is a scene-by-scene adaptation of the beloved novel from two writers who are already very familiar with the worlds of Arrakis and beyond.”
The Hollywood Reporter

“It’s Dune, but easier on the eyes…That means you can indulge a bit here, taking time to remind yourself of what makes the original source material so good…”
Polygon

“The palette practically makes Arrakis‘ blazing heat and desolation jump off the page…This art is gorgeous.”
Nerdist

“…an adaptation worthy of continuing the franchise's legacy for a new generation.”
Comic Book Resources

“…a breathtaking new comic book adaptation.”
SPACE.com

“The core of what made Dune a great science fiction novel has been preserved, and to it are added vibrant visuals in Dune: The Graphic Novel, Book 1—a resoundingly successful adaptation.”

 
Foreword STARRED Review

“Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín take a dense story and apply all that nuance and subtext to their visual language in adapting Dune. Panels establish scope and geography, and showcase the character who has the power in a scene, all the while guiding you as if you were on a theme park ride through the wild sci-fi action of warring families and giant sand worms. These two have pulled off a rare feat and made a political tale visually compelling."

-- Eric Heisserer ― Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Arrival

“Intricate . . . well defined . . . easy to follow . . . blending the aristocratic costumery, sci-fi technology, and desert landscape into a world that is unmistakably Dune.
Booklist

“A much-needed addition to the series started by Frank Herbert decades ago.”
The Nerd Daily

“The carefully chosen color palettes are particularly compelling, conveying the perfect sense of mood in every situation…a good gateway into the world of Dune.”
Boing Boing

About the Author

Frank Herbert (1920–86) was the author of Dune and its five sequels, as well as numerous other highly praised novels. Herbert became internationally famous for his science fiction novels and was also a newspaper journalist, photographer, short story writer, book reviewer, ecological consultant, and lecturer. His novel Dune is one of the bestselling science fiction novels of all time, and the series is widely considered the archetype for all science-fiction that followed. Dune is the most admired science fiction novel ever written.
Brian Herbert is the son of legendary science fiction author Frank Herbert and has written the definitive biography of him, Dreamer of Dune, a finalist for the Hugo Award. Brian has also written many highly imaginative novels, including the Timeweb trilogy, the ecological fantasy Ocean (with his wife, Jan), The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma, The Unborn, and The Assassination of Billy Jeeling. His earlier acclaimed novels include The Stolen Gospels, Sudanna Sudanna, and Sidney’s Comet, as well as Man of Two Worlds (written with his father). Brian has collaborated on many novels in the Dune series with Kevin J. Anderson, all of which became international bestsellers, and they also collaborated on the Hellhole trilogy. Brian comanages the legacy of Frank Herbert and is an executive producer of the new motion picture Dune and the forthcoming TV series Dune: The Sisterhood. He and his wife live in Seattle, Washington.
Kevin J. Anderson is an American science fiction author of more than 50 bestsellers. In addition to his original novels, he has written spin-off novels for Star Wars, StarCraft, and The X-Files, and with Brian Herbert he is the coauthor of 14 novels in the Dune series.

He currently resides in Colorado, with his wife.
Raúl Allén grew up in the town of Valladolid, Spain. He graduated with a degree in fine arts from Salamanca University and moved to Boston to study illustration and design. He currently lives in Spain. Allén has worked for Marvel Comics, Valiant, and DC Comics, with writers such as Matt Fraction, Ed Brubaker, Warren Ellis, Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt, and Peter Milligan. Allén has also worked on more than a hundred covers for Valiant, Image, Boom! Studios, and Penguin. He has also worked for Quentin Tarantino, Playboy, Rolling Stone, the New York Times, Billboard, the Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal. Allén’s work has been exhibited in New York, Boston, Washington DC, Rome, Berlin, Stockholm, Buenos Aires, Madrid, and Barcelona. When he is not drawing, Allén directs, shoots, and animates music videos.
Patricia Martín is a letterer, comics artist, and illustrator nominated for multiple Harvey Awards. Born in Spain, she always felt the need to communicate either through writing or drawing. Martín began her career in the field of book publishing with companies such as Oxford University Press, El Jinete Azul, and Barbara Fiore Editora, working on lettering and design. Later on she moved to the illustration and comics industry, and for the last four years he has worked on Wonder Woman with Steve Orlando, Bloodshot Reborn with Jeff Lemire, Ninjak with Matt Kindt, and Secret Weapons alongside artist Raúl Allén.
Bill Sienkiewicz is an Eisner Award–winning, Emmy-nominated artist best known for revamping the style of comics and graphic novel, most notably with Marvel Comics and DC Comics, earning him an international reputation and cult status across media industries. In 1984, Sienkiewicz was chosen by David Lynch to illustrate the comic book adaptation of his Dune movie for Marvel Comics.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bland adaption that is not connected to the movie.
By Jerry on November 27, 2020
The art and panel layout are incredibly dull, flat, square, and honestly boring. The colors are bland, the line work looks traced. No depth or dimension. The book is NOT an adaption of the characters from the new movie, so why they were waiting to release until when the movie was supposed to come out I am unsure. The cover jacket has some nice features, as does the inner binding. The pages are warping almost immediately from poor quality paper.. Overall a disappointing conclusion to a 5 month wait.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book- warped pages.
By Brenda Chouinard on November 24, 2020
Overall- stunning book with beautiful illustrations and striking colors.
However, my copy came to me with warped pages. So much so, that you can’t even close to book completely. (Included pictures)

By Gary Moore Jr on November 24, 2020
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars great read for lovers of Dune, general sci-fi, and graphic novels
By Reading Bifrost on February 9, 2021
Dune: The Graphic Novel is a great read for lovers of Dune, general sci-fi, and graphic novels. Of course, it’s not as detailed as the book, but it highlights the main topics and is still easy enough to follow along. It’s a great, quick way to relive the story and not have to read through the entire book. I still really wish it would have had the glossary at the end as the books do; explaining the different houses, planets, religions and people groups. It not only helps new Dune readers understand more of the story, but it also helps refresh the memory of Dune fans.

I am a bit disappointed with the art. It’s not bad, but it isn’t anything to write home about either. There’s nothing that’s dynamic or stands out in any way. Showing brief glimpses of the vastness of space or the first look at a new planet are perfect times to really bring in a dynamic piece of art, but alas, it was kept clean and simple.
