Retro Dark Horse: Star Wars Dark Horse 100 Variants

Starting in 2006, Dark Horse ran a program that allowed ten comic retailers to receive 100 copies of a variant cover.  The variants were used to promote issues that Dark Horse wanted to receive additional attention.  The first comic to receive a Dark Horse 100 variant cover is Star Wars: Dark Times #1.

Star Wars: Dark Times #1c - Dark Horse Comics, U.S. (November 2006)

Other Dark Horse properties besides Star Wars are included in the promotion including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Conan, The Goon, The Terminator, and others.  The next Star Wars comic is Star Wars: The Clone Wars #1.

The variants for these three comics are limited to 1,000 copies which is obvious from a blurb on the covers.
