I was thinking aloud on Twitter yesterday about a spoof of Dune called Drift, which would take place on a snow/ice planet instead of a desert planet (the name coming from snowdrift). Well, inspiration struck and I drew the (terrible) comic below on my Nintendo DS. Like before, this was pieced together in Photoshop. For the record, I am a fan of the novels, films, etc.
Read at own risk, this could get stupid.
This was fun, I enjoyed coming up with a way to spoof some of Dune‘s characters and such. And yes, I know it isn’t Paul who eventually becomes God Emperor. Hooray for stupid comics. When doing these, I try not to edit (too much) and to just go with my first idea. If anything, these are a good ‘think on my feet’ exercise. Man, I can’t even begin to tell you how many I hours of my youth I wasted spent playing Dune II on our old PC.
