1[[quoteright:130:]] ²²''Albedo: Birthright'' (Technically, it's just ''Birthright'' but that name is already used by another [[ComicBook/{{Birthright}} comic book of the same name]]) is a FurryComic written by Creator/SteveGallacci and it's the direct sequel of ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', published by Fantagraphics Books from 1985 to the rest of the decade, despite the prequel not being finished at the time.²²The story takes place a century after the events of ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', when Erma has passed away due to old age. The entire anthropomorphic civilization she fought to protect has collapsed after another war, resulting in the end of The Extraplanetary Defense Force, the Independent Lepine Republic, and Enchawah Corporation.²²The proper story begins when Prince Alfon Koshaka, the legitimate prince of the Principality of Shartoa, wages a revolution against Tosiu, another country who invaded his homeland, and helding his family as hostages once his country was defeated. With the help of his girlfriend Jenna and a few friends and allies, Alfon will try to reclaim his homeland, while dealing with the ghosts of the previous era and the mysteries that surround them.²²----²!!''Albedo: Birthright'' provides examples of:²²* ActionizedSequel: While it still the characters had conversations about the [[MemeticMutation socio-political ramifications]] about what they have done, we see much more ground military warfare here than in the original ''Albedo'', where the action was scarce.²* AfterTheEnd: Interstellar society has collapsed and individual planets are divided into nations fighting over what's left.²* DistantSequel: Takes place a century after the events of ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', with only a few elements from the prequel being mentioned in the plot.²* {{Dystopia}}: Not at ''Film/MadMax'' or ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' levels, but the setting is a shadow of its former self, compared with its prequel.²* FeudalFuture: Some planets (like Prince Alfon's one) regressed towards feudal-like societies.²* LaResistance: Two different revolutionary groups rise up at the same time.²* LostSuperweapon: [[spoiler:The EDF's WaveMotionGun]].²* TheMagnificentSevenSamurai: [[spoiler:The crew of the Winkles]].²* NobleFugitive: Prince Alfon Kodoka, who comes back to start a revolution.²* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Oh boy, where to begin: Basically almost '''everyone''' else looks too different compared with their ''Albedo'' counterparts, since most of the character looks more cartoony and animal-like compared with the previous series, when everyone else looked more human-like, save for the birds and penguins. This is especially egregious if you take into account ''Birthright'' was published originally along ''Albedo'', albeit in different magazines.²* NoodleIncident: The ''Third'' Lepine War (which occurred after Erma's demise by old age, and acts as the backstory of the comic) unfolded in an unexplained way, although WordOfGod says it involved genocidal amounts of nuclear and even ''biological'' weapons.²* StealthSequel: While WordOfGod states that ''Birthright'' is the sequel of ''Albedo'', it's not too evident at first because the whole story avoids mentioning the EDF, Enchawah, and the ILR, revealing only that society has collapsed after years of war.[[note]]Possibly due to editorial reasons, as ''Albedo'' was published in that time by Creator/AntarcticPress and Birthright by Fantagraphics.[[/note]] As the story goes, we find the society uses the same {{Fictionary}} used in ''Albedo'', [[spoiler:the mention about the EDF's WaveMotionGun and the fact Kala is a descendant of Erma Felna]].²* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler:After expelling the Tosiu invaders from Shartoa, Alfon and his men [[DiabolusExMachina are attacked by anti-royalist forces hellbent on killing him and his family]] just to prevent the return of the previous status quo before the Tosiu invaded the country and they only managed to barely escape from the planet alive after the crew of the Winkles rescue them]].²----
