THE BEGUILING IS EXPANDING!

If you’ve been in the store lately, you’ve probably noticed some commotion. Were those strange noises your imagination? Were we *really* getting into Halloween this year? Or maybe we were just listening to weird music?? (we do that)
Your senses have not been misleading you– we’re thrilled to say that The Beguiling is growing!
Over the course of the next year we will be expanding our College St location from a space a little bit smaller than our old location to one several times larger–  same great taste, even more filling.
We’ll announce more concrete things as they approach, but our initial expansion should be open to the public very soon so stop on by and maybe you’ll get to see for yourself!

EVENT: A CONVERSATION WITH MIKE DIANA November 5th

The Beguiling is pleased to present, in conjunction with Suspect Video and Horror-Rama, a conversation with underground comics artist Mike Diana!

Underground cartoonist, self publisher of controversial zines full of sexuality and violence, Diana has the distinction of being the first person to receive a criminal conviction in the United States for artistic obscenity. A documentary of Diana’s case entitled “The Trial of Mike Diana” is being made and will be released in the near future.

This event will be held in The Beguiling (319 College) Sunday, November 5th at 6:00pm. Following the conversation will be a chance for a Q&A and signing with the artist.
Learn more about Mike Diana over at The Comics Journal: Something of Value
