Albedo, Anthropomorphics.

Created by Steve Gallacci, and published by his Thoughts & Images company, this was the first successful "furry" book of the '80s, and one of the first to make it onto the speculative market. It became even hotter once issue two hit the racks—Usagi Yojimbo made his first appearance then, and is still selling well as a solo character.

Anyway, the reason for creating this page is to help discern between the different printings of issue 0, which can be mind boggling.

And that's it for reprints, of the original anthology. From what is available, #2 had 2000 prints, #3 10,000, and #4 6000. #2 was where Usagi Yojimbo first appears, yet amazingly, there was never a second print.
