If print is dead, then ROYAL FLUSH Magazine a rock and roll superhero zombie come back to life. Part pop culture mag, part rock art carnival, part comic book, and all irreverent fun, the annual Royal Flush Magazine experience returns with a bombastically bulging 112-page sixth book. The centerpiece: exclusive interview with, and tribute to Playboy s Hugh Hefner, in which Hef opens up his vaults and reveals, for the first time, comic strips and art he created over 60 years ago. Among other tales, he tells Flush of his first discovering Superman, I remember the afternoon in which my brother came home and told me about this character that was throwing cars, and jumping over buildings and I immediately started creating and drawing superheroes like Metallic Man, Marble Man., etc. The vintage-Playboyish cover portrait of Hef was painted by Australian sensation Robin Eley, and in homage, this issue boasts two fold-out posters: a Plaything of the Month centerfold by comics rock star Paul Pope (Batman Year 100, Heavy Liquid) and calendar by rock poster kingpin Brian Ewing (Vans Warped Tour, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Melvins) The issue is dedicated to the Greatest Generation. Men who fought in wars, dated broads, enjoyed stiff drinks, and most amazingly are still rocking including Hef, monster movie poster-art legend Basil Logos, cartoonists Jules Feiffer and Al Jaffee, and actor Leslie Nielsen, who gives a career spanning interview, from straight man to Duke of Deadpan.
