MAN’S BEST #1 Second Printing Announcement

MAN’S BEST #1 Sells Out & Returns with SECOND PRINTING

“Pichetshote and Lonergan successfully evoke the excitement and fun you felt as a child, looking at the night sky clearly for the first time and dreaming about the fun you could have dancing between the stars.”—AIPT

“a delightful introduction to a concept bound to be irresistible to animal lovers and sci-fi fans alike.”—

BOOM! Studios today announced that 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), has sold out at the distributor level! 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.

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.

In response to the overwhelming support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has announced MAN’S BEST #1 SECOND PRINTING (FEB247123), featuring cover art by series artist Jesse Lonergan, available in stores April 17, 2024.

Studios. “Fans everywhere anxiously await the next chapter of our new favorite furry heroes’ journey and we knew even more readers needed to hop aboard the adventure.
