Larry Welz, who had achieved some recognition in the San Francisco Bay Area Underground Comix scene with Captain Guts (a rightwing straight superhero who beat up hippies), created Cherry Poptart in San Rafael, California in 1975. Six years later, he finally got a book together & published by Last Gasp of San Francisco. He continued doing more books through the 80s, to a certain amount of international acclaim. This is Mr. Welz’s attempt to reboot his iconic character for the 21st Century.
