Hero Illustrated

    (Warrior, 1993-1995)

This magazine series featured numerous articles in the comic industry. Basically a Wizard-like magazine where the features were informative and the artwork eye appealing. The hero price guide was included in every issue at the end of the book. The magazine usually had a plastic bagged enclosure, where collector cards, miniature comic books, illustrating previews of upcoming stories, and other surprises were attached.
