Come one, come all! At Forbidden Planet NYC on November 21st, illustrator and escape artist Sean Von Gorman will lock himself inside a man-sized steel cage until we sell every copy of his new release from Alterna Comics, The Secret Adventures of Houdini: Book One! Yes, that would be the very same Sean Von Gorman who handcuffed himself to a traffic light outside FPNYC last February, enduring wind, rain, and police inquiries in order to sell his comics. Now that’s dedication.
In the same spirit, he’ll be making his triumphant return to FPNYC for the Secret Adventures of Houdini Release Spectacular on the day before Thanksgiving. There will be special guests! There will be live video of this notorious spectacle on our YouTube feed! There will be a grown man proudly locked inside a cage for public viewing–and how often does one get to Instagram a photo of that in a context that’s actually safe for work? Drop by FPNYC on Nov. 21st and pick up a copy of The Secret Adventures of Houdini to help relieve his burden. If you can’t make it to the store that day, fret not: online sales also count.
