COMMENTS
Dark Horse Extra was a 25 periodical sold thru comic specialty shops. It was 14 3/4" wide and 21 1/2" tall, folded once vertically. On some occasions it may also have been folded again horizontally. It contained three serialized strips, two on the front page and one on the back. Inside was a full page poster (measuring 14 3/4" by 21 1/2") and a full page devoted to upcoming releases called "Scoops from the Stable" by Ivana Fanboy. The rear page also featured an ad and a column on the Dark Horse Web Site called "DHC Web Words" by Jay Pegg.

This issue also features Usagi Yojimbo: Tsuru part 2 by Stan Sakai and Ghost: Cracked Mirror part 3 by Chris Warner & Chris Brunner, plus a poster for The Nevermen by Guy Davis.

Thanks to Joe K. for the review copy and cover scan of this issue.
SYNOPSIS
Landing in an X-wing, Kenix Kil presents his bounty to the local magistrate. The magistrate offers him the bounty on Kir Kanos, which he declines gruffly. Instead Kil gets offered the bounty on a dangerous cyborg bounty. Kil agrees to take the job. As he leaves, the magistrate calls and informs the cyborg that Kenix Kil is on his way!
