MAN’S BEST #5 First Look

Discoveries & Disaster in the FINALE of MAN’S BEST

Discover Pornsak Pichetshote & Jesse Lonergan’s Sci-fi Adventure Full of Heart in July 2024

BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at MAN’S BEST #5, the FINAL 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 July.

The FINAL ISSUE of the epic, heart-string-tugging adventure in space! As the animals make a precious discovery aboard the Terraformer that none of them saw coming, disaster seemingly strikes. In the end, a cosmic entity and a stunning new world will do little to mend the hearts of those who lose someone dear to them…

MAN’S BEST #5 features a main cover by series artist Jesse Lonergan, and variant covers by fan-favorite artists Mr. Oz (Jessica Jones), Alexandre Tefenkgi (Once Upon a Time at the End of the World) with Lee Loughridge, and Dan Mora (Once & Future).
