It was boring the first time it was posted and not greenlit.

Didn't change.

Best Dune comic mashup:

Ummmmm, OK, I've read the asses off all my already secondhand Dune paperbacks, but....this comes off as a very weird mashup.

This seems to turn Frank Herbert's very deep smarts into one or more of the following:

genuinely Zen jokes
pop psych platitudes
really weak pseudo-zen jokes
meaningless snoot-picking

or a drop of water in a clear pool.

That sucked.

I was thinking I'd see Calvin riding a sandworm.

Love C&H

Love Dune.

Found this kinda meh.

someone in the comments posted a couple instances where "The Far Side" and "Dennis the Menace" had their text swapped.  FAR funnier than the mashup.

I liked this one purely because I could honestly see Hobbes saying that.

Add me to the pile that found that underwhelming.
 
2013-09-16 03:35:55 AM
Terrible.

Well that was farking stupid.

Kill this comic. it is an Abomination. Kill it!

Now let's see the mashup showing characters from Dune quoting Calvin and Hobbes.

Calvin does kind of look like a young Sting.

All that did was underscore how bad Frank Herbert was.

Dune is awesome.  Too bad every sequel totally sucks.

I was a friend of Calvin. Calvin taught me that when you daydream in class you pay for it.
 
2013-09-16 08:56:45 AM
That was rather remarkable.  It was like two exciting, flavorful ingredients were somehow mixed into something that tasted palatable, yet bland.

The Dune trilogy was awesome.  Couldn't get into the fourth book.   The Sci-Fi series seemed to stop there, too, which was probably a good idea.

It's no triumph of transgressive post-modernism that is "Garfield without Garfield", I tell you what.

Agreed. Dune was brilliant, easily in the top 3 sci-fi books of all time. Each sequel is progressively weaker than the one before it. I usually bail mid God Emperor. People seem to like that one, but the whole concept is just stupid as hell.

Supermen aren't fun then they stop running around, kicking ass and chewing chewing gum

Meh.

Much better.

Not sure if serious

Haha! It's funny because it's 2 things!

Nothing is lazier and more un-amusing than nerd humor.

This story should have a FAIL tag.

Mashups prove that 1+1 =/= 2 WRT cultural items. Results can vary from 0 - infinite win depending on the quality of the mash.

That was the one where Dale Cooper yells at people to kill them, right?

I liked God Emperor but that is where I burned out. I don't remember the next book but I bailed.

I did finish the Mission Earth series of LRH. Kinda proud I made it through all ten books. Actually enjoyed the entire series. Many laughs were had. The things lesbians can do with cheese graters and mustard is not something I want to experience soon. Or ever.
