Dune: House Harkonnen #1 is the premiere issue of a new twelve-issue comic book series expanding the rich mythology of Frank Herbert’s Dune. The second official, New York Times bestselling prequel to Dune is adapted for the first time by award-winning novelists Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson and artist Michael Shelfer (Domino), colorist Patricio Delpeche, and letterer Ed Dukeshire, unveiling a closer look at the rising conflict between beloved characters and bitter villains.
Fans will gain insight into how the early years of iconic figures Gurney Halleck, Lady Jessica, and Liet Kynes had their future shaped by the complex and brutal machinations of House Harkonnen!
What difficult choices will tear Leto Atreides apart as Baron Harkonnen plots against not just House Atreides, but the Bene Gesserit and the Emperor himself?
Now, we have not been on top of following the Dune mythos over the years, having only watched the original film along with the 2021 reboot in 2022. However, we are aware of the impact Frank Herbert’s creation has had on the world over the years.
It is always good, in our books, to expand the universe of a television or film series by publishing related comic books and this is no different. Experiencing stories in comic book with characters, places, and more we experience on screen is a great way to feed our love of science fiction.
BOOM! Studios is on a winning-streak with their licensed property comic book adaptations and we are loving it.
