Dune: House Atreides Creative Team Announced
BOOM! Studios has announced the star-studded creative team for Dune: House Atreides #1, the series premiere of a twelve-issue Dune: House Atreides comic book series arriving in stores October 2020. This will be 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 and colorist Alex Guimarães, 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.
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!
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.
Dune: House Atreides #1 features main cover art by superstar artist Jae Lee, variant cover art by Dan Mora, and more. The first issue comes to shelves on October 21, 2020.
