The first ever Albert the Wolf comic strips were originally published in 1974 on the Corriere dei Ragazzi, an Italian daily newspaper aimed at the younger generations. The English-language version, above, was created in the ’90s and distributed by United Media with the aim of reaching an international – mainly US – audience.

A comical, and in its own way satirical and allegorical, farm set on the gently rolling hills of what could be the southern English countryside, but is really a realm inhabited by animals with human characteristics: a guard dog that looks like a big fluffy polar bear, a wolf in love with a chicken, an annoying middle-aged mole and an array of other characters that you will discover with us as we make our way, week after week, through the first 70 or so strips.
