I bought them raw from Metro and ebay. The second print was listed as a 9.4 by Metro. I think they may need to reevaluate their grading system. On the flipside I bought the first print as a Fine and it came back an 8.0 so I guess that evens out.

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!

 

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:

 

agreed! I wouldn't have liked that artwork as a kid but as an adult I liked both the art and the story. Was "part two" ever published? I don't think that story continued right into Albedo did it?

 

Boy SG sure needed a spellchecker though! :insane:

1st Omaha in a fanzine?

 

There was a dealer on Ebay selling a full set of Vootie for something like $500 last year. I forgot if that listing sold or not.

Yes indeed. Vootie is probably the rarest anthropomorphic and the one that really started it all. Before Huzzah even. I believe those had a print run of 80 copies each.

Nice looking 8.0 copy. Any copies are nice! You can't find this book anywhere right now besides the lone 9.8 on feebay. To be honest I think that book will deserve that price at somepoint, much harder book to find in high grade or any copy then TMNT 1.

Thank you!  I am very happy with it.  You’re absolutely right in saying,”any copies are nice”.  Definitely a tough book to find, especially now.
