radioactive punk

This is what's caught my eye today. Not that I want the toy or anything, even if it is anatomically correct. (No one seems curious enough to verify that claim, but neither would I be.) But it certainly is a curious piece so I wonder what it comes from.

Where it comes from is apparently a comic strip buried away in punk culture of the late 1970s that influence practically everyone. Or at least Matt Groening. Now there's a few books (they don't look to be collections of the strips) around in what I shall call highly collectible form ($30 for 40 pages, oversized hardcover books that are out of print even when only two years old). But I may have to pursue whatever the LAPL has hidden away and see what all the fuss is about.
