Here is the original link from Dark Horse Comics back in 2004. To summarize, only 999 were made and numbered, each with both signatures and certificate of authenticity. This is the Artists Proof! Without asking Eric or Mike or anyone at Dark Horse at that time how many AP of this were made, we can only assume it was either possessed by Eric So or Mike Mignola, or there were a limited number made for the artists to have or give away.One thing for certain is there are less of this version than the original run of 999. When I do research on this I keep hearing only 1000 pieces made worldwide. Could this be one of a kind?
Capping that 999 number to 1000? Could this be the prototype they did early test shots with? It's all possible, I live in Portland, Oregon, a few miles from Dark Horse Comics....
