Time Capsule: Dark Horse Insider September 1989

A continued look at pre-internet publisher’s comics solicitations, this time: Dark Horse Insider September 1989.

Dark Horse Insider was the publisher’s second newsletter and was eight pages of news and solicitations printed on newsprint. They made it desirable by running a new one page strip every issue: this time around it was Black Cross by Chris Warner. Also inside was an interview with Bob Burden, and the introduction of Dark Horse merchandise.

  1. My goodness, it brought back memories of an unique Independent decade! After your post, I had to check if I did save Dark Horse Insider, turned out I do have issue # one, all the way to issue #27. I usually took a couple copies or three each of all these (very sorely missed) Chris Warner’s Black Cross serialized stories (which concluded at issue # 13). It’s format changed into comic book-like format. It was more like mini-preview and mini-comics such as Art Adams’ beloved Monkeyman and O’Brien, Arnold & Jacob Pander’s XXX, Triple-X, Adam Warren’s (Oh. Hell. Yeah!) Dirty Pair, & Dave Stevens’ immortalized and classic The Rocketeer, etc.

    Cheers!

  2. I mean, ” It’s format changed into comic book-like format. It was more like mini-preview and mini-comics” which occured in Spring 1994, I think.
