A Harrowing Adventure in Space in Your First Look at MAN’S BEST #1

Pornsak Pichetshote & Jesse Lonergan Team Up for a Sci-fi Adventure Full of Heart

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 16, 2024) – BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at MAN’S BEST #1, the premiere issue of an action-packed sci-fi romp full of heart by Pornsak Pichetshote, writer of the Eisner and Harvey Award-winning The Good Asian, Eisner Award-nominated rising star artist Jesse Lonergan (Miss Truesdale and the Fall of Hyperborea), and letterer Jeff Powell (Infidel). Homeward Bound on an alien world, MAN’S BEST follows three emotional support pets living on the Starship Horizon—a spacecraft searching for a new home to house a humanity compromised by bad decisions and corporate greed, coming to comic shops this March.

After the ship crashes and the crew is captured, these loyal pets are their owner’s only hope. Outfitted in outrageous tech, these three best friends must traverse a hostile world to rescue their owners–leaving them the only hope for a humanity that might not be worth saving. In a harrowing adventure, the pets are faced with challenges that threaten to destroy their most valuable treasure: their friendship.

MAN’S BEST #1 features a main cover by series artist Jesse Lonergan, and variant covers by fan-favorite artists Trish Forstner (Stray Dogs), Frany (Once Upon a Time at the End of the World),  Jae Lee (Batman/Superman) with June Chung, and Dustin Nguyen (Descender).
