First Post here.

Pulling out the collection after 38 years in storage. Here are my Albedo issues.

Have all three versions of the Blue cover #0.

The Albedo #2s have never been touched since the day they were cherry-picked out of the LCS shipping box and mylar'd in '84.

So, yeah, I was one of the 30-somethings who knew exactly what they were buying in 1984.

I bought an Eastman/Laird signed TMNT #1 1st print at the 1984 San Diego ComicCon and sold it in March 1990 right before the movie was released. Got $1200 for it. Thought I was robbing the guy (who's the fool now!?). But that sale convinced the wife to let me keep the rest of the collection all these years. WAF is important.

At that same time I unloaded my Love and Rockets #1. Who knew that even in Los Angeles the staples were gonna get rusty.

Have pretty much kept everything else all these years. As a follow-up I'll post my first run Usagi Yojimbo issues later in the appropriate thread.

Semper Fi - T.

BTW - the Albedo #1 is the dark red variant.

If you're interested there was a boardie buying them up, if selling, but I probably couldn't afford it as much as I wanted. Glad in your introduction post you mentioned the yojimbo Netflix, I still haven't gone past the first episode, but more importantly I'm glad it made your list! Me and @Wolverinex among others thought it would be made after the TMNT issues #47 with space usagi.

You're in good company and welcome to the boards! Nice books 😊
