DUNE: The Graphic Novel, Book 2: Muad’Dib is adapted by Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert, son of Dune author Frank Herbert. Cover art was illustrated by Bill Sienkiewicz and the comic panels by Raul Allen and Patricia Martin. Additional pencils and inks by Jesus R. Pastrana and additional colours by Monica Jaspe Garfia.
The book's a 168-page hardcover published by Abrams.
The story obviously continues from the first volume. Paul and his mother are trapped in the desert and are looking for the Freman. Denis Villeneuve's movie covers the first volume and 2/3 of this book.
Now that I've watched the movie, I can say that the adaptation of DUNE for the graphic novel and movie is quite similar. If you've already watched the movie, I'm not sure if it's worth getting this graphic novel too. Anyway, this is a fantastic graphic novel. I read it in one sitting and was engaged throughout. The art looks great. Muad’Dib is Paul's new name after he's accepted by the Fremen.
If you have read the first volume, getting this second volume is a no brainer. Kindle edition is available too. The third volume will come out in early 2024.
