Aliens: Alien Queen design references cover art
by Dan LaMountain for "Protectorate" (1985)?

leading from
September 1st 2016, I suddenly discover the cover of "Protectorate" by Mick Farren published in January 1985, and realise that it resembles the design of the Alien Queen with its skull that widens at the back. The creature is loosely inspired by Giger's art and his Alien beast and the idea of an insect head.

‘Protectorate’ (250 pp) was published by Ace Books in January 1985;
the cover art is by Dan LaMountain.
