"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 features a main cover by Jae Lee and variant cover art by Dan Mora, Miguel Mercado, and more.
The original novel was created by writer Frank Herbert, and since it was published in 1965 the novel has become a beloved science-fiction epic. It is now set to hit the big screen, and between the film and comic series, it will introduce a whole new legion of fans to the series.
