    Star Brand (1986) 19
    Published May 1989 by Marvel.

    "Finale!" Story by John Byrne. Art by John Byrne and Jeff Albrecht. It's the swan song for all those touched by the power of the Star Brand. All questions are answered. The origin of the Star Brand. The cause of the White Event. The identity of the Old Man. Complete closure is brought to this highly underrated series. NOTE: In 1986, the concept of the New Universe was really innovative and fresh, with Star Brand being the cream of the crop. Though it lacked direction at some times it was very inspired and it's a shame it was not allowed to reach its full potential. Maybe with Neil Gaimen's New Universal (2006) series the New Universe can finally unfurl and blossom into the beautiful flower it was always meant to be. Only time will tell. - Odinson, Lone Star Comics Archivist Cover price $1.50.
