AUG 11: JORDAN REGINALD AELICK “DON’T FRET” GALLERY OPENING!

Don’t Fret: You’re Only Dreaming

Jordan Reginald Aelick

“While we sleep we dream. What a strange realm of existence it is. The clarity of these times can rival our daily lives, others lost in a confused fog, forever forgotten. Exploring the world of dreams and reality, Fret Aujir continues his unwanted journey throughout the land of the Feurlin’s where the greedy Reginald Oilslick continues his corporate reign. Every chapter alternates between being a dream inside of Fret’s head followed by his ongoing daily life, starting with a dream chapter. Over the course of two and a half years of daily panel comic practice the paintings in this series were made to be used as the cover image for each chapter’s printed zine, one panel per page. Between 30 and 90 copies of each chapter were printed. Upon completion of chapters 1-4 and 5-8 they were compiled in a larger zine, four panels per page. All twelve chapter’s were then collected and assembled into a hardbound book, hand made (except for printing which was done by a Xerox machine at Net Plaza) in an edition of 50.”

The Beguiling will be displaying Jordan’s art in our gallery for the month of August, with an opening event on Sunday, August 11th starting at 6PM!

JULY 27: COMIC SHOP LADIES NIGHT AT THE BEGUILING!

Come join us for some summer fun at The Beguiling! Bring your friends for a warm-but-chill evening of comics, coloring, door prizes, snacks, drinks, and a room full of your comics-loving peers.

Time: Saturday, July 27, 2019, 7pm – 10pm
Location: The Beguiling Books & Art
319 College St., Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5T1S2
(On College Between Spadina & Augusta)
Cost: FREE!

Comic Shop Ladies Night is back with another summer event! This is a ladies only event* where you can embrace your geeky side, discover new comics, share your opinions on movies, TV shows and video games, and cozy in from the cold with some comics! So put on your favorite Geek Tie attire (whether it’s a floofy dress or your favorite jeans) and come spend the evening with other nerdy ladies in a casual environment, surrounded by comics and merch.

For our July event, we will be returning to The Beguiling and every hour we’ll also be giving away amazing door prizes, but you have to be there to win, so be there is what we’re saying! We’ve got comics, games, a nerdy photo booth, and of course our popular table for the best colouring book action in town, so bring your pencils and imagination.

We’re trying something a little different with our Muskoka beer sponsorship this time — instead of an in-store tasting, we’ll be doing giveaways!

Don’t forget to invite your friends and RSVP to get yourself on the guest list and to get your name entered for the door prizes.

*This event is inclusive to all women, including those that identify as cisgender, transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary. Thank you to our wonderful community for supporting our intentions to build this event as a safe(r) space! We couldn’t do it without you. ♥

Accessibility: This location is accessible, but we regret that the washrooms are not.
