This is the newest Dark Horse Presents book in 11 years (Sept, 2000 was the end of the original series with issue #157). DHP then turned up online as MySpace Dark Horse Presents which ran for 36 issues (from August 2007 to July 2010, and was reprinted in a series of 6 trade paperbacks.)

In addition to the main cover by Paul Chadwick and Frank Miller's variant cover, an ultra-rare variant by Paul Pope (cover artist for The Escapists, the original and historic run of Dark Horse Presents, Marvel's Strange Tales, DC's Wednesday Comics) will also adorn Dark Horse Presents #1.

Retailers who buy twenty copies of DHP #1 featuring the Chadwick cover, the Miller cover, or a combination of both will receive a copy of DHP #1 featuring the ultra-rare variant cover (available only while supplies last), signed by one of the book's iconic creators. For each additional twenty copies ordered, another ultra-rare variant edition will be received, and each will feature a new signature.
