Legendary ‘Dune’ Illustrations by John Schoenherr (9 pictures)

Frank Herbert is purported to have said that John Schoenherr was “the only man who has ever visited Dune.”

choenherr’s illustrations are among the most celebrated of science fiction artworks; he showed that science fiction art could be mature and painterly, worlds away from the lurid pulp exaggerations the genre had cultivated since its inception. The first artist to tackle the desert planet Arrakis, his Dune illustrations in particular have become archetypes by which Frank Herbert’s universe is visualized.

Let’s Celebrate Superman’s 75th Anniversary with Animated Short

From the creative minds of Zack Snyder (Man of Steel), Bruce Timm and produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this short follows Superman through the years, from his first appearance on the cover of Action Comics #1 to Henry Cavill in this year’s Man of Steel…all in two minutes. All aspects of the short are animated, but significant characteristics make it known that one Superman is Christopher Reeves and another Henry Cavill. With that the transition from Superman to Superman through the years flows well, bursting through the comics into a new era.
