I promised a scan. . . sorry that the lighting makes it look like there's spine marks, but they're obviously not on the book.

 

EDIT: scan moved to post with other books

Huzzah #1,published with a June 1979 cover date was the actual first appearance of Erma Felna by Steve Gallacci. So, in reality, this was the book that started it all!

 

I've been looking for this book for 30 years now. Proved harder to find than the infamous Albedo #0 Yellow edition, but now my early Albedo collection is complete!

No idea on the print run as it wasn't printed in the book. But, I believe it was technically a fanzine so I'd expect no more than 500 if that. Potentially only 100-500 copies, but no real idea. This is only the second copy I've ever seen.

 

The book was a lot thicker than I thought it would be - and a lot more Gallacci stories in it as well as other artists.

Fantastic artwork! I just loved how simple the backgrounds were in these stories, yet with enough details to help tell the story.

 

Wonderful find!

 

:applause:

I picked up an Albedo Refractions #2 the other day. I've seen #3, but never a #1. I even checked Google for a scan/pic, but I couldn't find anything.

 

Do any of you have one?
