April 26th: Aaron Costain ENTROPY book launch & art show with special guest Zach Worton!

On Thursday, April 26th The Beguiling is pleased to welcome local artist AARON COSTAIN to launch his debut graphic novel from Secret Acres, ENTROPY!
“Aaron Costain’s Entropy follows a golem with a surprisingly modern sensibility, and an even more modern sense of style, as he backtracks through millennia to understand his own creation. Entropy takes place at the intersection of the world’s cultures. Mythologies and religions cross-pollinate, bleed into one another, and form a new soul from synthesis – or they will if our epic hero can outrun man-eating giants, a duplicitous raven, a mute doppelgänger, an angel and one very manipulative, slave-driving cat. Entropy delivers an all-time adventure.”
To coincide with the launch we will also be presenting a selection of pages from ENTROPY in our gallery space, available for purchase!
AND AS IF THAT ISN’T ENOUGH, ZACH WORTON will also be on-hand for the event as a very special guest! We will also be displaying a selection of work from Zach Worton in our gallery space! WOW!
This event starts at 7PM! Free to attend and open to all!


We’ve added a bunch of new original art to our art store from two amazing & very disparate artists!

First, we have a selection of pages from three of Tommi Parrish’s newest releases, allowing the incredible range of their work to be on full display! This includes many pages from  from their debut book for Fantagraphics, The Lie and How We Told It!

Next, we have  a selection of affordably-priced works by renowned ero guro artist Shintaro Kago! Kago’s gorgeously realized horror artwork is not for the faint of heart but his surprisingly lighthearted (and off-kilter) sense of humour shines throughout this selection of pieces.

Head over to our art store to check out both of these artists and take some of their work home!


The Death of Stalin comes out this Friday, March 16, and to celebrate Elevation Pictures & Taro PR have kindly supplied us with three sets of double passes for the theatrical run of the movie– and what’s even better, we’re giving ’em away to YOU!

Based on the graphic novel by Fabien Nury and Thierry Robin, the internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia takes on darkly comic form in a new film by Emmy award-winning and Oscar-nominated writer/director Armando Iannucci. In the days following Stalin’s collapse, his core team of ministers tussle for control;  some want positive change in the Soviet Union, others have more sinister motives. Their one common trait? They’re all just desperately trying to remain alive.

To enter, just send an email to us at with the subject line STALIN IS DEAD and we’ll pick three winners this Friday!

Thanks again to Elevation Pictures and Taro PR for the tickets!
