    Description

    Larry Welz Captain Guts #1 Original Art Partial Story and Single Illustration Group of 23 (The Print Mint Inc., 1969). Virtually the entire story, here, from Welz' Underground Comix epic about a superhero devoted to eradicating rebellious youth. (Missing are Pages 1 and 14 of a 24-page story; the 23rd piece is a free-standing page depicting Captain Guts as the "Guardian of Liberty.") The work pre-dates by over a decade Welz's creation of the notorious Cherry Poptart series; his recognizable style is already in place. The first printing of this title is also recorded without an issue number: The #1 designation was applied for a 1971 reprinting. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 13" x 17". Excellent condition. From the Eric Sack Collection.
