Underground Comic Artist and creator of Cherry Poptart Larry Welz Shout Out

Download this episode

Larry gives Talk Nerdy to Me a big shout out… and commits a little Freudian slip in the process!

Larry Welz was born & raised in Bakersfield, California, home of Buck Owens & Merle Haggard (OK, Merle was actually from Oildale, right across the River), where he studied Drama & did Theatre in High School. In 1967 or so, he hitched a ride North to San Francisco to draw Comics for the coming Revolution. His work in such comic books as Yellow Dog, Bakersfield Kountry Komics, Funnybook, San Francisco Comic Book, Captain Guts, and Cherry Poptart is an important, if obscure, part of comic artwork history.
