This issue of COMICS INTERVIEW, published in 1989, featured a lengthy interview with Wendy (ELFQUEST) Pini discussing the first, of two, graphic novels based on the BEAUTY AND THE BEAST TV show.
The CBS drama ran for three seasons (1987-90) although the last series was drastically retooled, dispensing with co-star Linda Hamilton (Catherine). Ron Pearlman (Vincent) appeared throughout.
Portrait of Love was published, as a bookshelf format (aka "Dark Knight" format) one-shot in 1989. A UK edition was published under license by Marvel UK and the strip was also serialised in their girls weekly BEA.
Pini followed-up with a second one-shot, Night of Beauty, in 1990. There was no UK edition.
Innovation Comics acquired the license for a six issue run in 1993 before the publisher folded.
