NEWS WATCH: Beware of fierce enemies in your first look at DUNE: WATERS OF KANLY #3


BOOM! Studios has unveiled a first look at DUNE: THE WATERS OF KANLY #3, the penultimate issue of a four-issue comic book series expanding on Frank Herbert’s rich Dune mythology, adapted and scripted by the authors at New York Times hit Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, illustrated by artist Francesco Mortarino (Power Rangers), colored by Raúl Angulo (Go Go Power Rangers), and lettered by Ed Dukeshire (past and future), in partnership with Herbert Properties LLC and in full coordination with Abrams ComicArts, which released the first in a trilogy of graphic novel adaptations of Herbert’s original classic novel DUNE in fall 2020.

In the penultimate issue of Dune’s thrilling lore expansion, Gurney and the Smugglers have the opportunity to land a crucial blow against their bitter enemies. The problem is, will they be able to escape or will they face the deadly consequences of failure?

Created by visionary writer Frank Herbert, Dunes 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 the first Nebula award, Dunes inspired a string of bestselling novels and led to multiple live-action adaptations, including Legendary Pictures’ upcoming feature film. The influence of Dunes extends far beyond the world of entertainment, with an incalculable influence on modern scientific thought on politics, religion, outer space, environmentalism, and more.

DUNE: THE WATERS OF KANLY #3 features a main and variant cover by renowned illustrator Christian Ward (something kills children) and variant covers by artists Junggeun Yoon (Magic) and Andrea Sorrentino (avengers).
