  • Issue #12
    Star Brand (1986) 12

    The Pitt Begins. "Farewell, Pittsburgh!" Story by John Byrne. Art by John Byrne and Tom Palmer. The beginning of the end. The mystery surrounding the White Event is finally revealed. What does the Star Brand have to do with it, and what unbelievable mistake does Kenneth Connell make that causes the death of hundreds of thousands of innocent people? Story continues in Pitt (1987 Marvel). NOTE: Though this story begins on an up beat note (a portion takes place at a comic convention) it soon takes a dark turn for the worse. This is without a doubt the single most important issue of all the New Universe titles. It sets the stage for the rest of the series. - Odinson, Lone Star Comics Archivist Cover price $0.75.

    Written by John Byrne and Mark Gruenwald. Art by Sal Buscema and Stan Drake.

    Story continued from Star Brand (1986) #12.

    Starring Col. Browning, Spitfire, and the Witness.

    Two years ago a phenomenon dubbed the White Event changed the New Universe forever. Humans began to develop super-human abilities all over the world. They became known as Paranormal. Last night, Kenneth Connell, possessor of the Starbrand and most powerful of all the Paranormals, tried to place the Brand on an inanimate object.

    The result...another White Event.

    Except this time the entire city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania was destroyed in the process. Thousands of souls snuffed out in an instant. All that remains is a gigantic crater and an unnatural maelstrom. This is the story of what happens next.

    Is this the beginning of the end for the New Universe?

    Yes.
