DUNE : HOUSE ATREIDES #1-3 (Brian Herbert, Kevin J. Anderson / Dev Pramanik)

Dune : House Atreides (La Maison des Atréides en V.F.), le premier roman du cycle Avant Dune, sera adapté en comic-book pour Boom! Studios par ses auteurs, Brian Herbert et Kevin Anderson. Dev Pramanik (Paradiso) se charge de la partie graphique de cette maxi-série en 12 épisodes qui sera publiée à partir d’octobre.

"Set in the years leading up to Dune – which inspired the upcoming feature film from Legendary Pictures – Dune: House Atreides transports readers to the far future on the desert planet Arrakis where Pardot Kynes seeks its ecological secrets in remote, desolate regions of the alien world.

« Meanwhile, a violent coup is planned by Shaddam Corrino, the son of Emperor Elrood; far away, an eight-year-old slave Duncan Idaho seeks to escape his cruel masters; and a young man named Leto Atreides begins a fateful journey. These unlikely souls are drawn together first as renegades and then as something more, as they discover their true fate – to change the very shape of history! »

« Dune is one of the most exciting and important sci-fi worlds ever created – so once we had Brian and Kevin onboard, we knew we needed some of the best artists in the business to deliver the kind of series that would deliver on the epic story they’re telling, » said Dafna Pleban, edtior at BOOM!

« Dev and Alex bring an exciting look to the world of Dune, with Vladimir Harkonnen and Duke Leto visualized for the very first time in comic book format. Add in superstar artists like Jae Lee and Dan Mora bringing jaw dropping covers and you’ve got a series unlike anything else in comics. »

Combien de temps pour que Nikolavitch réagisse ?

Ça aussi ça va le faire réagir :

Ça fait un moment que je me dis que l’univers de Dune est suffisamment riche pour être décliné/exploré par des comics, comme pour l’univers de StarWars, et que la quasi-absence sur le sujet (à l’exception de l’adaptation du film de Lynch par Sienkiewicz) est un peu étonnante et peut-être même dommage.

Mais commencer par une adaptation d’une des m***** de Brian et Kevin, zut, quoi.

Z’ont peur des fans ?

Je n’ai pour l’instant pas d’opinion sur cette bande dessinée en termes d’adaptation et d’intérêt par rapport à l’univers et au travail de Frank Herbert, mais question dessin, je trouve ça plutôt pas mal. Je ne connais pas du tout ce monsieur Pramanik, mais il y a une atmosphère combinée à une qualité de trait qui rendent l’ensemble assez prometteur.
