DUNE: A WHISPER OF CALADAN SEAS #1
Discover a Brand New Special From the Authors of the Official Prequel to Frank Herbert’s ‘Dune’ in December 2021
LOS ANGELES, CA (December 2, 2021) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at DUNE: A WHISPER OF CALADAN SEAS #1, a brand new comic book special issue expanding the rich mythology of Frank Herbert’s Dune, adapted & scripted by New York Times bestselling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, illustrated by artist Jakub Rebelka (Origins) and lettered by Ed Dukeshire, in partnership with Herbert Properties LLC and in full coordination with Abrams ComicArts, who published the first of a trilogy of graphic novel adaptations of Herbert’s original classic novel DUNE in Fall 2020.
During the chaos of the legendary Battle of Arrakeen, a group of Atreides soldiers gets caved in. So while Paul Atreides meets his destiny in battle, Sgt. Vitt must use his family’s gift of storytelling as a Jongleur to transport his men from their tomb to their homeworld of Caladan. Can Vitt mentally transport them back to the lushness and vast oceans of Caladan and give them the gift of hope in the darkness?
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.
DUNE: A WHISPER OF CALADAN SEAS #1 features main cover art by Jeff Dekal (BRZRKR) and variant covers by artists Rebelka, Elizabeth Torque (Venom), and Christian Ward (Something is Killing the Children).
