Phase 01: December 26, 9am-6pm. December 27: 11am-7pm.
It’s Boxing Day! And it’s bigger (and earlier) than ever! We’re opening at 9am, and we’re expanding to TWO STORES this year, with great Beguiling Boxing Day Specials at The Beguiling (as you’ve come to expect) and at Little Island Comics! They’ve got a little bit more elbow room over there, and we’re going to take advantage of it by having more Boxing Day specials than ever before over at Little Island!
As is traditional, we’re holding our Boxing Day sales starting December 26th, and continuing through the rest of December and January. Different stuff on sale all the time, incredible door crasher specials on the 26th, and much more!
ALSO: We get a lot of people coming in the store every year, saying things like “uh I read about a special on the mailing but I can’t remember…”. We encourage you to take notes! Sales will be posted in store, but you probably don’t want to try and read 10 pages of sale info twice. Read carefully below!
PHASE 01: Monday December 26 & Tuesday December 27
Door Crashers, Comics, Graphic Novels. (Back issues and wall books will be unavailable during this time.)
NEW COMIC DAY: Wednesday December 28

PHASE 02: Thursday December 29 to Sunday January 8
Back issues on sale! Wall books on sale! More blanket sales! A more detailed e-mail covering these sales will come next week!
PHASE 03: January 9 to January 31

- Bring your own bags! Save the environment! We’re happy to sell you 5c bags, but we’ve only got small ones left.
- We reserve the right to refuse sale of any item to any customer for any reason. We probably won’t do this, but this is a straightforward disclaimer in case there’s any dispute about what is or isn’t on sale.
- Out-of-print items (books/comics/etc.) are exempt from sale pricing. Determination of ‘out of print’ is at The Beguiling’s sole discretion. Ask at the counter if you’re unsure.
- Anything put on hold prior to Boxing Day is entirely exempt to sale pricing.
- Sales cannot be combined with other specials or sales.
- “Regular Price” is determined as ‘Whatever the book would sell for not on Boxing Day,’ whether that’s U.S. Cover Price, Converted Canadian Cover price, Canadian Cover Price, or Sticker Price.
- Items released in December 2011 or later are not eligible for sale. Determination for eligibility will be made at the cash register, at our sole discretion.
BACK ISSUE BINS and WALL BOOKS will not be accessible until December 29. They are not on sale, they aren’t even really FOR sale. We are sorry, but we’re focusing on other product during this part of the sale, and we need the space and attention for other things. Thanks!
