Discover the Official Prequel to The New York Times Bestselling Series as
a Comic Book Series in December 2020
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 30, 2020) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at DUNE: HOUSE ATREIDES #3, adapted & scripted by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, who co-wrote the eponymous prequel novel based on Frank Herbert’s notes and illustrated by artist Dev Pramanik (Paradiso), colorist Alex Guimarães (Buffy: Every Generation) and letterer Ed Dukeshire (Once & Future), in partnership with Herbert Properties LLC and in full coordination with Abrams ComicArts, who are publishing in the fall the first of three graphic novel adaptations of Herbert’s original classic novel DUNE.
Young Duncan Idado is given an ultimatum: escape or die. Meanwhile, Leto Atreides is introduced to the hyper-advanced city of Ix where his future will be shaped in unimaginable ways. The Planetologist Pardot Kynes ventures into the plains of Dune, and makes a destiny-altering discovery. And Reverend Mother Gaius Mohiam confronts Baron Harkonnen with a proposition he can’t refuse…
Created by visionary writer Frank Herbert, Dune debuted in 1965, has sold millions of copies and is arguably the most admired science fiction novel of all time. After winning the Hugo Award and inaugural Nebula Award, Dune inspired a best-selling novel series and led to multiple live-action adaptations, including the upcoming feature film from Legendary Pictures. The influence of Dune extends well beyond the world of entertainment, with an incalculable influence on modern scientific thinking about politics, religion, outer space, environmentalism and more.
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, 2020. 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.
