The Official Graphic Novel Adaptation of Denis Villeneuve's Epic Film DUNE!
Telling the hero’s journey of Paul Atreides (portrayed on screen and page by Timothée Chalamet), the DUNE graphic novel, adapted by writer Lilah Sturges (Lumberjanes) with art by Drew Johnson (Godzilla Dominion) and colors by digital painter Zid (Kingdom Kong), features beautiful artwork that brings the cinematic vision of Dune to the world of sequential art.
A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune, based on Frank Herbert’s seminal novel, tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
Comic legend Bill Sienkiewicz, who created the original Dune comic for Marvel in 1984, returns to the Dune universe to contribute the cover for the graphic novel as well as covers by interior artists Drew Johnson and Zid, acclaimed British SF and comic artist John Ridgway (Doctor Who), and the legendary Tim Sale (Batman: Long Halloween).
Lilah Sturges is the writer of numerous comics, including the PRISM Award winning Lumberjanes: The Infernal Compass and The Magicians and Legendary Comics’ upcoming The Science of Ghosts, as well as many other titles from DC, Marvel, IDW, and others. She lives in Austin, Texas with two daughters and two cats.
