To celebrate the release of its seventh book, Royal Flush held a special signing event this past Monday, October 11 at New York City's own Forbidden Planet with cover star Rob Zombie. The acclaimed musician and filmmaker signed copies of Royal Flush Book Seven and "Hellbilly Deluxe 2 - Special Edition" (out now on Roadrunner/Loud & Proud).

Royal Flush Book Seven is available for purchase online exclusively at this location, and hit stores throughout the U.S. and Canada on October 12. Part pop culture mag, part rock art carnival, part comic book, and all irreverent fun for serious fans, Royal Flush is an annual, collectible magazine known for its provocative humor, stylish design and innovative art. "Royal Flush displays more creativity in its first 25 pages than most publications do in a year," according to MediaPost.
The Royal Flush Rob Zombie cover portrait was painted by legendary heavy metal album artist Ed Repka, best known for his cover work for MEGADETH. A limited-edition lenticular hologram cover (only 1,000 made!) will be available exclusively at Barnes & Noble.
Too big for one magazine, Royal Flush Book Seven features a flip-side cover with film legend Danny DeVito and the entire cast of the hit TV show "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" illustrated by veteran Royal Flush artist Patrick McQuade.
Both cover stars agree that Royal Flush Book Seven is not to be missed. "Royal Flush might be the craziest thing I've ever seen," says DeVito. "This is amazing."
"Royal Flush is awesome," says Zombie. "There aren't any magazines like it. It's great to leave around forever because there is so much stuff to read."
The colossal Book Seven, a double-barreled, double-sized salute to both TV and B movies, plus the usual batch of comics, underground art, satire and pro-wrestling tomfoolery including an exclusive interview with Danny McBride about "Eastbound & Down" Season 2 and his upcoming movie "Your Highness", with a bonus look at the men who inspired McBride's "Eastbound & Down" character Kenny Powers by baseball author Dan Epstein.
