Your First Look at DUNE: HOUSE ATREIDES #6 from BOOM! Studios
Discover the Unexpected Fate of Ix and Dark Plans for the City in April 2021
LOS ANGELES, CA (April 1, 2021) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at DUNE: HOUSE ATREIDES #6, 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) with ink assistance by Raffaele Semeraro, 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 published the first of three graphic novel adaptations of Herbert’s original classic novel DUNE in Fall 2020.
An unexpected revolt throws the balance of Ix into jeopardy and now Leto must make an important decision as the underground city is on the cusp of falling into evil hands. And while The Bene Gesserit’s oracles predicted they would need a child from the Baron Harkonnen in order to continue tracing a genetic line to their foretold messiah… their plan has not gone as well as hoped. On the doorstep of Castle Caladan comes the boy who will change everything – Duncan Idaho has arrived.
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 published on 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.
