Albedo (1st Series)

 ALB1   (Thoughts & Images, 1983-1989)

™ and ©1987 Steven A. Gallaci. Stories © their respective creators.

In this furry animal epic, join Erma Felna and the EDF Corps in the distant future as they fly around the galaxy, putting down revolutions, discovering new planets, and finding the ancient remains of a spacecraft with a skeleton of an ape-like animal never seen before.

Steve Gallacci uses an unusual charcoal/pastel medium for his art that lends soft warmth and depth to his work. He is also a contributor to other titles such as Fusion and Command Review. Albedo Anthropomorphics serves as a showcase for not only his own work, but also for many other talented artists. Most famous among these is Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo, a samurai bunny who lives in a sort of “funny animal” version of feudal Japan. Usagi, along with the Eastman and Laird’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are among the few to survive the shake-out that doomed most other black-and-white funny animal books of the mid-1980s.
