SATURDAY 2pm-3pm @ Royal Flush Booth — SIGNING: HARVEY PEKAR & SEAN PRYOR sign “GAUNTLET OF ROCK” from ROYAL FLUSH BOOK 6:
“Let’s send Harvey some metal and punk CDs to review! That’ll get a rise outta him,” schemed Royal Flush Magazine hoping to fulfill the fantasy of Flush illustrator and major Harvey Head Sean Pryor, who was rearin’ to draw a Pekar story. So Harvey wrote a script about his relationship to rock and Sean slaughtered it eight ways to Albuquerque. The story appears in glorious full color print in the new Royal Flush Book 6 which is a maximalist melange of rock, art, humor, pop culture & comics and is on sale now.
