Indie Cover Spotlight: Hero Alliance Quarterly #2

Today’s cover is an early one from Brian Stelfreeze:

HeroAllianceQrt2-Dec1991

This issue was published in December 1991 by Innovation.

There’s an interesting story that goes along with the cover: I always thought there was something familiar about the texture of the background, especially the “ridges” on her collar. Years after this book came out, I was at a comic con and speaking to one of the artists who had worked on the book (I can’t remember who, unfortunately) and he said that he remembered this cover because Brian drew it on the inside of a pizza box after a show, just passing the time. Apparently that was good enough for Innovation, who used it as a cover.
