BOOM! Studios has revealed new variant cover for Dune: House Harkonnen #5 by Raúl Allén (Abbott: 1973). The twelve-issue comic book series expands on 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.

Chaos ensues across planets as Gurney stages a tense rescue mission, while Liet and Warrick are forced to make a difficult choice, and Leto regrets putting the young Victor in danger’s way on Caladan. Meanwhile, the recapture of Ix turns explosive, and the Bene Gesserit prepare for the presentation of a fateful person in Leto’s life to come…

The issue features main and variant cover art by highly acclaimed artist Raymond Swanland (Magic: The Gathering) and variant covers by artists Reiko Murakami (The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country), and Jeremy Bastian (Cursed Pirate Girl).

Here’s a look at the cover gallery:

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.
