    June 22, 2010 – Los Angeles – BOOM! Town, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, announced today that R. Crumb’s MR. NATURAL POSTCARD BOOK arrives in stores August.

    Robert Crumb’s fly-by-night white-bearded guru, Mr. Natural, is an icon of the 70s hippie era and probably Crumb’s most famous character. This book features twenty-four all-different images of the Natch with his most famous follower Flakey Foot, plus Devil Girl and others, dispensing advice on all manner of subjects. All on heavy card stock, perforated for easy removal, whether for mailing or putting on a bulletin board or fridge door.

    MR. NATURAL POSTCARD BOOK is presented to you by BOOM! Town through an arrangement with Denis Kitchen Publishing.

    “With his GENESUS book topping best-seller lists and his original art touring the nation’s museums, interest in Robert Crumb has never been higher,” points out Denis Kitchen, a long-time publisher of Crumb’s work. “This book was an especially fun project to assemble and will appeal to underground comix fans and hip fans of all ages, not to mention postcard collectors, like me!”

    MR. NATURAL POSTCARD BOOK contains 24 different full-color cards, hand selected and newly colored by R. Crumb himself. $11.95. Ships in August and has a Diamond Code of JUN100859.
