With its extended universe, “Dune” is establishing itself as a major work of science fiction.

Editions Delcourt have just released a comic book on the theme of Denis Villeneuve's film.

The comic faithfully repeats the plot of the film.

Several film projects

In 1965, after the release of Frank Herbert's book, the work quickly gained the reputation of being unsuitable for cinema.

David Lynch did it well in 1984, but in the credits, he took a pseudonym as he was no longer responsible for directing this feature film at all.

In the 1970s, another project was abandoned.

This was an adaptation by Jodorowsky Storyboard Moebius.

Pink Floyd was responsible for making the music for the film and for the casting and we could find Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali and Amanda Lear.

Just that.

Frank Herbert's son signs a preface in this statutory comic strip where he recalls that Frank Herbert had the idea for Dune while doing a report on guys planting perennial plants at the top of the Oregon dunes to stabilize them.

His imagination will run wild.

It took him five years to write the first story and suffered 23 rejections from publishers.
