Dune Welcome Wagon
Dune Welcome Wagon by El Thorvaldo (@Thorvald)

This content is part of a serial. Read it in webcomic format here!

My 76th submission to DYOS X. [link]

When lord_joakim specified he'd gone to Arrakis, it warmed the cockles of my heart. I'd read the first and third books of Frank Herbert's original trilogy, and played a few computer games; in short, I was psyched for this setting. I was therefore quickly disheartened to discover CivGeneral had little interest in learning the lore, despite the dangers I lay out here, instead defaulting to a generic Middle-Eastern flavour.

This comic marks the point I stopped doing originals as bitmaps and saved my work directly as .PNGs. Unfortunately, I still had some months to go before I got shoulders proportionate. :roll:

Clyde loves webcomics. Can you name the ones seen here?
