BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at DUNE: HOUSE HARKONNEN #12, the final issue of a brand new twelve-issue comic book series expanding the rich mythology of Frank Herbert’s Dune. The second official, NYT 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 (Angel), and letterer Ed Dukeshire (Irredeemable), unveiling a closer look at the rising conflict between beloved characters and bitter villains and available in stores January 2024. 

Interplanetary death and destruction gives way to a fateful romance that will change the universe forever, but defiance won’t be without its consequences. And before the story concludes, the Baron will find vengeance where he can, and Leto will say a painful goodbye…

DUNE: HOUSE HARKONNEN #12 features main and variant cover art by highly acclaimed artist Raymond Swanland (Magic: The Gathering) and artist Reiko Murakami (The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country).

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.
