Quasar #34

November 6, 2010

Mark Gruenwald // Rurik Tyler
May 1992
***
Part 17 of “Operation: Galactic Storm”
Skrulls have hijacked a space-bomb & hyperspace traffic has destabilized our sun. But the cavalry arrives as Binary (AKA Carol Danvers) siphons off the antimatter causing the solar eruptions. As always, the mag’s strength is in its naive superhero tone, which makes the space operatics a delight.

Quasar #33

October 27, 2010

Mark Gruenwald // Rurik Tylor
April 1992
***
Part 10 of “Operation:  Galactic Storm”
Guest artist Tyler’s JR Jr. style fits w/ G-wald’s gee-whiz tone. While the Avengers establish diplo relations w/ the Shi’ar, Quasar probes the theft of the late Capt. Marvel’s power bands. Q has a superhero’s clumsiness, crashing thru deep space & butting heads w/ three interchangeable superteams.

X-Factor #82

August 21, 2010

Peter David // Rurik Tyler
September 1992

X-Factor get into a dockside melee w/ former members of Freedom Force (the govt. team that our heroes replaced a year ago). The pretext: a boatload of mutant refugees seeking asylum. It’s a nice idea, w/ Havok posturing as a liberal American milksop, but it’s short on details & buried by the action.
