BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Dune: House of Atreides #2, 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, colorist Alex Guimarães, and letterer Ed Dukeshire, 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.
Pardot Kynes arrives on Arrakis to begin research into terraforming the desert planet, but the merciless Baron Harkonnen has plans of his own. Meanwhile, the sadistic Harkonnens brutally test a young slave named Duncan Idaho. And Leto Atreides meets with the pioneers of space travel technology – taking the first steps towards his incredible destiny.
Dune: House of Atreides #2 features main cover art by Jae Lee and variant cover art by JG Jones. It comes to shelves on November 25, 2020.
When it comes to prequels, the main thing that usually brings us to these stories is finding out exactly how the world came to be. This is why people flocked to the theaters to see Episodes I-III of Star Wars. We saw how Anakin became Darth Vader, and what dark impulses led him there. Though the movies had fans divided, what Lucas did with the actual story gives the audience a blueprint and understanding of what was released earlier.
The wanting of knowing more is especially true for fans like me of Frank Herbert’sDune series, one that his son, Brian, has carried on. The books that followed are as good and even better than what was originally released. The series’ dense mythology is what makes the story as good as it is. BOOM! Studios expands upon that existing world with an authorized adaptation, the brilliant Dune: House Atreides#1.
We’re taken to Arrakis, where the Baron Vladamir Harkonnen has taken over as Sirridar Governor after ousting his brother Abulurd. We also meet Pardot Kynes, a planetologist who gets summoned to the emperor’s court. He gets assigned to Arrakis, stoking a curiosity of said planet and why was he assigned there. We also meet Earl Dominic, a military contractor, who has had a long relationship with the emperor and guaranteeing his vast fortune. We also meet Leto Atreides, a young man, who will soon be the sire of Earl Dominic, and whose outlook is very bright. By the issue’s end, two men from the Emperor’s court put things into play, leaving all of our protagonists in a state of chaos. Dune: House Atreides #1 sets the stage for the next Dune epic story.
Overall, Dune: House Atreides #1 is an excellent introduction to the world and its stakeholders. It shows how one move on the chessboard could up-end the whole game. The story by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson is vast and masterful. The art by the creative team is adequate but not eye-catching. Altogether, a story that I loved re-reading, and this adaptation satiates that nostalgia that long time fans are looking for.
