    HERO ALLIANCE
    Kevin Juaire
    When Hero Alliance was first published it was a graphic novel published by Pied Piper Comics in the later part of the 1980s. It was later reprinted in a series form with minor edits and additional pages by Innovation Publishing as the series Hero Alliance: End of the Golden Age. The series would soon go on as a one-shot by Wonder Comics, and then moved to its final home at Innovation and would be written by David Lawrence and ran for a total of 17 issues. Later the series would continue with numerous special issues.
