Sci-Fi Gets Raunchy In ‘The Worst Dudes’ From Dark Horse Comics
by James Ferguson
Lobo meets The Big Lebowski in The Worst Dudes, an upcoming five-issue mini-series set to debut in June from Dark Horse Comics. Written by Aubrey Sitterson, illustrated by Tony Gregori, colored by Lovern Kindzierski, and lettered by Taylor Esposito, the comic is described as “hilarious, aggressively weird, and willfully vulgar.” That’s a very intriguing combination for a sci-fi mystery book.
The Worst Dudes follows…well…the worst people in the galaxy, specifically, a dirty cop, a drugged-up back-up dancer, and an angsty adolescent god as they hunt for a missing pop star. Things only get stranger from there.
“Wait…we’re actually publishing this? Did I sign off on this?” said Dave Marshall, Editor-in-Chief of Dark Horse Comics.
“After the colossal success of No One Left to Fight, I knew we needed to follow it up with something entirely different,” said Sitterson. “That’s why Tony and I cooked up a book so vile, so raunchy, so utterly odious, that it’ll make your other comics turn yellow.”
Says Gregori, “I’m beyond thrilled to be working with the legendary Dark Horse Comics on The Worst Dudes, and I can’t believe they’re letting me draw giant [censored] pink [censored], and alien landscapes overflowing with [censored]!”
The Worst Dudes #1 is set for release on June 2nd, 2021.
