You can pretty much do whatever the artist can draw. This could lead to a wonderful comic. Unfortunately, that was not the case with the Dune adaptation.


Again, they were adapting the film, so I doubt there was much freedom and that comes through in a lot of the interior art the covers are quite nice. In the comic, where they could really do something cool art-wise, we get the panels above, which are, quite frankly, lackluster and sad.

Another area where they could have shined was with the great worms. This ties to the scene in the movie where the Duke lands to save the workers mining the spice, and the great worm comes up from beneath them to destroy the Spice Harvester.

Like this gentleman you just might recognize: It's Guinevere's father from Excalibur! No, wait - it's Jean Luc Picard The third primary power in the universe is the Spacing Guild , which monopolizes interstellar travel and banking. Mutated Guild Navigators use the spice drug melange to successfully navigate " folded space " and safely guide enormous heighliner starships from planet to planet instantaneously.

While positioning themselves to "serve" humanity, the Bene Gesserit pursue their goal to better the human race by subtly and secretly guiding and manipulating the affairs of others to serve their own purposes.

The Bene Gesserit also have a secret, millennia-long selective breeding program to bolster and preserve valuable skills and bloodlines as well as to produce a theoretical superhuman male they call the Kwisatz Haderach.

By the time of Dune, the Sisterhood are only one generation away from their desired individual, having manipulated the threads of genes and power for thousands of years to produce the required confluence of events.

But Lady Jessica , ordered by the Bene Gesserit to produce a daughter who would breed with the appropriate male to produce the Kwisatz Haderach, instead bears a son—unintentionally producing the Kwisatz Haderach a generation early. Through specific training, they learn to enter a heightened mental state in which they can perform complex logical computations that are superior to those of the ancient thinking machines.

About this product

The patriarchal Bene Tleilax , or Tleilaxu, are amoral merchants who traffic in biological and genetically engineered products such as artificial eyes, "twisted" Mentats, and gholas. Finally, the Ixians produce cutting-edge technology that seemingly complies with but pushes the boundaries of the prohibitions against thinking machines.

The Ixians are very secretive, not only to protect their valuable hold on the industry but also to hide any methods or inventions that may breach the anti-thinking machine protocols. The Imperial House schemes to gain full control of the Empire through the control of melange, precisely at the time that the Bene Gesserit breeding program is nearing fruition.

The most valuable commodity in the known universe, the spice not only makes safe and reliable interstellar travel possible, but also prolongs life, protects against disease, and is used by the Bene Gesserit to enhance their abilities.

The potential financial gains for House Atreides are mitigated by the fact that mining melange from the desert surface of Arrakis is an expensive and hazardous undertaking, thanks to the treacherous environment and constant threat of giant sandworms which protect the spice.
