Anderson, illustrated by Francesco Mortarino, colored by Raúl Angulo, and lettered by Ed Dukeshire.

In the aftermath of the battle of Arrakeen, legendary House Atreides warmaster Gurney Halleck takes refuge with spice smugglers, vowing revenge against the Harkonnens no matter the cost.’

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.”
