Rare Comic Albedo Vol. 1 #2 1984 Stan Sakai Usagi Yojimbo First Appearance:
Most comic fans and collectors are familiar with the art of Stan Sakai, in particular his extremely popular Usagi Yojimbo, a much-loved character and story since the 1980s. This is the comic where the rabbit warrior first appeared, and is now a widely-sought issue throughout the comic world.
Albedo was a small-press B&W comic created by Steve Gallacci which featured many popular artists of the time, while chronicling the life of Gallacci's Erma Felna. Usagi Yojimbo appeared for the first time in this issue (Albedo Vol. 1, Issue 2, 1984), and only 2000 copies of the issue were ever printed. The issue also includes the work of cartoonist Lela Dowling.
This particular copy comes from my private collection and is in excellent condition. There is miniscule wear to the spine, but otherwise the comic is in nearly-new condition.
For those who are fans of Stan Sakai, or those who enjoy collecting very rare comics, this is an opportunity to own the very first appearance of the rabbit ronin Usagi Yojimbo and would be a prized addition to anyone's comic library..
