The press release follows:

Media Release — BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at DUNE: HOUSE ATREIDES #2, 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 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.

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.

DUNE: HOUSE ATREIDES is the newest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to critically acclaimed original series, including Once & Future by Kieron Gillen and Dan Mora; Something is Killing the Children by James Tynion IV and Werther Dell’Edera; Faithless by Brian Azzarello and Maria Llovet; Klaus by Grant Morrison and Dan Mora; Folklords by Matt Kindt and Matt Smith; The Red Mother by Jeremy Haun and Danny Luckert; and Alienated by Simon Spurrier and Chris Wildgoose. The imprint also publishes popular licensed properties including Buffy the Vampire Slayer from Jordie Bellaire and David López; Firefly from Greg Pak and Dan McDaid; and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers from Ryan Parrott and Daniele Di Nicuolo.
