Royal Flush Book IV has received its first official review from none other than the highly regarded Media Post’s Magazine Rack, and man, it’s a whopper. So much so that the crew at Flush HQ were actually blushing.
With quotes like; “…Royal Flush displays more creativity in its first 25 pages than most publications do in a year”, “Any conversation about Royal Flush should probably begin with the mag’s design, which is rich with lavish illustration”, and “my first thought upon paging through what Royal Flush calls “Book 4?: this is f#@$in’ great.”
I hate retrieving the mail every day, and it’s all your fault. I’m looking at you, Miss Missie who placed my name on a list for multiple Spanish-language titles despite my NO HABLA ESPANOL entreaties. And you too, Mr. Man who sent over a heaping of publications along with the note “give me your informal thoughts!” (my new policy on this, effective immediately: I’ll give you my informal thoughts if you give me your informal money). Seriously. It’s a successful day here at Chateau Dobrow when the mailbox contents are limited to credit-card solicitations and weeks-early birthday wishes. I’m incapable of ignoring anything sent my way, however, and every so often that deficient impulse control serves me well — like late last week, when Royal Flush arrived on my doorstep with nary a hint of press-release bombast. I’d never heard of or seen the magazine before, nor did I know anybody else who’d heard of or seen it. And it’s great.
I know, I know — usually you get better adjectives for your Magazine-Rack buck. But that was my first thought upon paging through what Royal Flush calls “Book 4?: this is f#@$in’ great.
A subversive mishmash of music, pop culture and underground art, Royal Flush displays more creativity in its first 25 pages than most publications do in a year. read more »
