Since Quasar was part of the Operation: Galactic Storm cross-over, but usually only available in the direct-sales market, Marvel released newsstand editions of #32-34 labelled on the covers as #1-3 for the newsstand market so those buyers would not miss part of the story.
This issue is a variant of Quasar (Marvel, 1989 series) #34 [Direct].
There exist further variants:
Quasar [Wendell Vaughn]; Her; Super-Skrull; Kayla Ballantine; Angler; Devon Ballantine; Epoch; Binary; Dr. Keith Kincaid; Edwin Jarvis
Quasar allows the Nega-Bomb to pass through the stargate as Earth's sun is eaten away by antimatter from the bomb. Wendell tries shunting it into the Quantum Zone, but Binary is the one who ultimately saves the sun, nearly dying from the strain.
Operation: Galactic Storm Part 17; continued from Captain America #400; continued in Avengers West Coast #82; for a complete Operation Galactic Storm checklist, see Part 1 of the series in Captain America #398.
