BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Dune: Blood of the Sardaukar #1, a poignant, blood-soaked tale expanding the rich mythology of Frank Herbert’s Dune.
Adapted & scripted by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, and illustrated by artist Adam Gorham, colorist Patricio Delpeche, and letterer Ed Dukeshire, Dune: Blood of the Sardaukar #1 drops in Fall 2020.
‘When the choice is vengeance or honor, which lies at the heart of a Sardaukar? Jopati Kolona is one of the Sardaukar: the emperor’s elite military unit. The Sardaukar are unbeatable, unbending in their devotion to the emperor, and feared throughout the galaxy.
When Jopati meets Duke Leto of House Atreides, the house he believes responsible for the destruction of his home planet and family, he will be forced to question a life-long hatred. Tasked with overthrowing the Atreides stronghold on Dune for his master, Jopati will be forced to choose between duty and forgiveness.’
Featuring main cover art by Jeff Dekal and variant covers by Gorham, Max Fiumara, and Gerald Parel, Dune: Blood of the Sardaukar #1 hits the spinner racks on July 28, 2021.
