Quasar #12 (1990)

In this issue, Quasar fights the Blood Brothers and Makkari (the Eternals’ version of Flash/Quicksilver/Hermes).

I’ve been hard on this book because the star is basically just Green Lantern and because his “secret identity” story doesn’t make sense.  This could have been a wild roller-coaster of a book—he’s an alien hunter with a floating head in his closet—but the execution is bland.  I’ll give some credit, though, for always jamming in a bunch of esoteric Marvel characters every issue.  I do enjoy that aspect of it.
