BOOM! Studios has shared an early preview of Dune: House Atreides #1 ahead of its October release. The comic, adapted and scripted by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson is based on the prequel novel to Frank Herbert’s classic Dune, based on the author’s notes. It’s illustrated by Dev Pramanik and colored with Alex Guimarães, made in partnership with Herbert Properties LLC and in full coordination with Abrams ComicArts, which is publishing the first of three graphic novel adaptations of Herbert’s Dune.
Set in the years leading up the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Dune—which inspired the upcoming feature film from Legendary Pictures— Dune: House Atreides transports readers to the far future on the desert planet Arrakis where Pardot Kynes seeks its ecological secrets in remote, desolate regions of the alien world.
Meanwhile, a violent coup is planned by Shaddam Corrino, the son of Emperor Elrood; far away, an eight-year-old slave Duncan Idaho seeks to escape his cruel masters; and a young man named Leto Atreides begins a fateful journey. These unlikely souls are drawn together first as renegades and then as something more, as they discover their true fate – to change the very shape of history!
Dune: House Atreides #1 feature a main cover by Jae Lee and variant covers by Dan Mora, Miguel Mercado, and more. It’s set for release on October 21st, 2020.
