NEW “1969” MERCH BUNDLE CELEBRATES THE ORIGIN OF BOY HOWDY!

In 1969, on the cover of CREEM No. 2, underground cartoonist R. Crumb we introduced Mr. Dreamwhip—a smiling, suggestive, (SO totally PC for 2020) middle-finger to the stuffy LIFE Magazines populating the newsstand. But it was the mischievous little guy right above, Boy Howdy!, that wormed his way into our cold, corroded hearts, instantly becoming the mascot of the magazine, and an enduring symbol of the rock 'n' roll counterculture.

Now that we’re back, it seems appropriate to bring out Mr. Dreamwhip for yet another encore. This time as a LIMITED-TO-50, screen-printed, 18”x24” poster. It's one of our favorites, a piece of rock history, and the perfect way to say “The Boy is back!” These are available NOW (but not for long) in an exclusive bundle that also includes a Boy Howdy! tote, a copy of the CREEM50 Commemorative Magazine, and a 6-pack of Boy Howdy! beer wraps. Grab yours at the link below! ME NEXT MISTER DREAMWHIP!
