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 The Nevermen part 1 by Phil Amara, Guy Davis, David Stewart & Steve Haynie, and Usagi Yojimbo part 4 by Stan Sakai, plus a poster for Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Ring of Fire by David Stewart.

Thanks to Joe K. for the review copy and cover scan of this issue.
SYNOPSIS
The cyborg asks Kanos how he can know his secret? He goes onto reveal that he was Massimo, Commander Sinn's second in command on Phaeda. When Sinn and Massimo were captured by the Zanibar, and Kanos rescued Sinn, Massimo was freed as well. Unfortunately a fall into a pit of coals horribly burned and disfigured him, forcing him to adopt a cyborg arm and headgear. Massimo reveals to Kanos that he is not out for the bounty on Kanos' head, but that he wants his head on a pike!
