PORTLAND, Ore. 1/31/2024 — The highly anticipated Kid Cudi sci-fi launch has gone intergalactic and sold out instantly at the distributor level, morning of release. Fans eager to pick up the extremely collectable, in-demand Moon Man #1—by Grammy Award winning artist Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi, Eisner Award-nominated co-writer and Massive-Verse architect Kyle Higgins, breakout artist Marco Locati, coloring mastermind Igor Monti, Eisner Award-winning lettering dynamo Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, and editor extraordinaire Michael Busuttil—should make a run on their local comic shop post haste before the copies disappear from shelves. Image Comics will fastrack a reprint in order to keep up with escalating demand.
The much buzzed-about sci-fi launch has garnered early attention everywhere from Entertainment Weekly to Space and will celebrate its debut at the at-capacity, RSVP-only Revenge Of event this evening. Social media has lit up with fervor for the event and the store’s specially-hidden golden tickets drove fans to frenzy for a lucky chance to attend the exclusive party.
Moon Man follows Ramon Townsend, a man ready for a quiet life after gaining unexpected celebrity status for steering his ship and crew safely home from a near-disastrous moon mission. Whatever went wrong on that failed moon mission, whatever happened in the missing minutes the cameras didn't capture, all Ramon really wants is to settle down back home in Cleveland. But those missing minutes hold an Earth-shattering secret—and, with all eyes turned to him, Ramon will soon find himself becoming something the world has never seen before.
Moon Man #1, second printing (Lunar Code 1123IM909) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, February 28.
Moon Man is also available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
