What if the Big Lebowski were set in outer space? That's kinda the idea behind the new creator-owned comic book series The Worst Dudes.

Writer Aubrey Sitterson and artist Tony Gregori have crafted an adults-only comic that its publisher, Dark Horse Comics, calls "hilarious, aggressively weird, willfully vulgar."

If that didn't get you interested, check out this preview of The Worst Dudes #1 (opens in new tab), colored by Lovern Kindzierski and lettered by Taylor Esposito.

The Worst Dudes stars a dirty cop, a disgraced back-up dancer, and a legitimate teen god on a mad hunt for a missing pop star. Think of it as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas…. But in space.

"After the colossal success of No One Left to Fight (opens in new tab), I knew we needed to follow it up with something entirely different," Sitterson says in The Worst Dudes' initial announcement. "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."

"I'm beyond thrilled to be working with the legendary Dark Horse Comics on The Worst Dudes," says Gregori. "I can't believe they're letting me draw giant [censored] pink [censored], and alien landscapes overflowing with [censored]!"

No, we didn't censor that - Gregori did.

The Worst Dudes #1 (of 5) goes on sale on June 2. 

This and all of Dark Horse's comics are available digitally the same day they debut in print. For the best digital reading experience, check out our list of the best digital comics readers for Android and iOS devices.
