Boom! Studios has announced that New York Times bestselling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson are teaming with artist Francesco Mortarino (Power Rangers) for a four-issue limited series adaptation of their short story Dune: The Waters of Kanly, which takes place during Frank Herbert’s original novel and details Gurney Halleck’s plan for revenge against the Harkonnens.
“In the novel Dune, Gurney Halleck works secretly among the smugglers for two years, building his hatred toward the Harkonnens,” said Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. “We loved the opportunity to explore those lost years and tell this story of his plan to avenge what they did to noble House Atreides.”
“Brian and Kevin have done it again with an in-depth look at one of the most intriguing characters in the Dune universe—Gurney Halleck—and the incredible never-before-seen journey he undertook to get justice for the House he devoted his life to,” added Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, Boom! Studios.
