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.The first issue of BOOM! Studios' 12-issue mini-series Dune: House Atreides is due out in October, illustrated by Dev Pramanik (Paradiso) and colourist Alex Guimarães.
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!
The story has been adapted and scripted by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, who co-wrote the eponymous prequel novel based on Frank Herbert’s notes.
The Dune: House Atreides limited series is published in coordination with Abrams ComicArts, who will release a graphic novel trilogy adapting Frank Herbert’s original novel Dune, with volume one coming November 24.
The Dune graphic novels from ComicArts are also adapted and scripted by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, and will be illustrated by Raúl Allén and Patricia Martín, and feature covers by Bill Sienkiewicz.
