Dune: House Atreides #1 Has Sold Out Before Its Release this Wednesday
BOOM! Studios has announced that Dune: House Atreides #1, the series premiere of the twelve-issue comic book adaptation of the New York Times bestselling novel, adapted, and 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, has sold out at the distributor level!
BOOM! is releasing a Dune: House Atreides #1 Second Printing with brand new cover art by acclaimed artist Michael Walsh, as well as an incentive variant cover by illustrator Evan Cagle, both available on November 11, 2020.
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!
Dune: House Atreides #1 First Printing will be available on October 21, 2020 at local comic book shops.
