Featuring author Aaron Manczyk
Thursday, October 9, 2014
@ The Central, 603 Markham St.
Presented by The Beguiling
18+

From the author of “Cumlung” and “Strokes of Genius” comes his latest and greatest creation: PANTHOR. He’s a mercenary, and some bad men need him to do a an even worse job. He’ll do it, but on HIS terms. And there’ll be a whole lot of nude killing. Really, really nude.

Look, this is going to be a book launch, but there might also be wrestling? At least arm wrestling. And an interview. And PANTHOR.

You were warned.

SHOPLIFTER Book Launch and Event
Featuring author Michael Cho
Wednesday, September 3rd, Event at 6PM! 
@ The Central, 603 Markham Street

Please join The Beguiling and Random House Canada for the official launch of Michael Cho’s SHOPLIFTER, a new graphic novel. Author Michael Cho will be in attendance at the event and read from the work.

Michael Cho’s Shoplifter, his first graphic novel, is a joy to behold—so beautiful it will make all other cartoonists weep with envy.”
—Seth, author of Palookaville

About SHOPLIFTER:

Corinna Park used to have big plans.  Studying English literature in college, she imagined writing a successful novel and leading the idealized life of an author. But she’s been working at the same advertising agency for the past five years and the only thing she’s written is … copy. Corinna knows there must be more to life, but and she faces the same question as does everyone in her generation: how to find it? Here is the brilliant debut graphic novel about a young woman’s search for happiness and self-fulfillment in the big city.
