Anderson and artist Michael Shelfer (Domino), colorist Patricio Delpeche, and letterer Ed Dukeshire,
Dune: House Harkonnen series focuses on giving fans greater insight into how the early years of iconic figures Gurney Halleck, Lady Jessica, and Liet Kynes had their future shaped by the complex and brutal machinations of House Harkonnen. The fourth issue of the twelve-issue series teases the following:
Although Leto and Kailea’s blossoming romance brings about the expectation of their first child, political complications put a strain on their relationship, while a traitor looms in their midst. On Lankiveil, Glossu Rabban turns trophy hunting into what the Harkonnens are known for best–their brutality. And as the years pass, a shadow still follows Leto and Kailea, seeding further discontent, even as a rebel from Ix comes seeking help, and maybe even liberation for the planet!
