Get ready to take a look at the new ‘Dune’ comic from Boom! ‘A Whisper of Caladan Seas #1’

Back in August, we revealed the first flashy covers for another “Dune”-related comic from Boom! Studios titled “Dune: A Whisper of Caladan Seas,” and now the award-winning publisher has recently released a five-page preview of the first issue’s interior lyric art and it’s nothing short of brilliant.

This special 40-page one-shot explores and heightens the deep mythology of legendary author Frank Herbert’s 1965 masterpiece “Dune.” It’s the ideal way to re-immerse yourself in the exotic sci-fi universe after seeing director Denis Villeneuve’s epic new film adaptation, which hit theaters last year.

“Dune: A Whisper Of Caladan Seas #1” is written by New York Times bestselling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, illustrated by artist Jakub Rebelka (“Origins”), and finished with lyrics by Ed Dukeshire. The standalone issue released on December 29 was arranged in a deal with Herbert Properties LLC and Abrams ComicArts, the publisher that delivered the first in a trilogy of graphic novel adaptations of Herbert’s seminal novel last year.

Originally crafted as a moving short story, “A Whisper of Caladan Seas” was the first fictional portion of “Dune” that Herbert and Anderson wrote together. It served to stand as a creative exercise and exploratory project as they built the longer narrative arcs for the 1999 “Dune” prequel novel, “Dune: House Atreides.”

This untold story from the world of “Dune” begins when black smoke from the Battle of Arrakeen still chokes the vast sands of Arrakis. A squad of Atreides soldiers is trapped in the shield wall after a brutal attack by an ancient Harkonnen artillery piece. Sergeant Hoh Vitt of the elite Atreides guard must use his family’s effective storytelling skills to mentally teleport his brave men from their graves to the water-rich home planet of Caladan as a means of solace and hope.

“The origins of Brian and Kevin’s incredible worldbuilding within the Dune universe begin here with an insightful and moving story that shows a side of this classic sci-fi epic that has never been seen before,” said Boom! Studies editor Jonathan Manning at a Boom! Press release.

“Dune: A Whisper Of Caladan Seas #1” just arrived on December 29 and features a mesmerizing main cover by Jeff Dekal (“BRZRKR”) and special variant covers courtesy of Rebelka, Elizabeth Torque (“Venom”) and Christian Ward. (“Something is killing the children”).
