Redrat was created by Rotterdam punk pioneer and singer with the punk band De Rondos, Weert, as a character for inclusion in the influential Dutch punk fanzine Raket.

Created as a reaction to the Police violence during the Amsterdam Coronation Riots the original adventures were published between 1981-1983. Redrat was bought back to life in 2009, Weerts clear line drawings and zoomorphism together with Redrat’s ironic and cynical comments paint an important fresco of four decades of political and social history in the Netherlands.
