The incentive for this variant cover was to celebrate Dark Horse Comics' 25th Anniversary. The company started in 1986 and their first published book was the fittingly titled Dark Horse Presents #1. This cover is ink and ink wash over graphite on bright white Bristol board with an image area of 28cm x 36cm and is obviously an homage to the style of cover Will Eisner did for many issues of The Spirit.
