Fresh coat of paint.

Hello customers and friends!

In the interests of getting with the times, at least a little bit, we’re in the process of upgrading our web presence.

The first step is we’re now running WordPress, which means the site looks about 20 times prettier than yesterday, and is going to be far more useful to you (and to us!). Because the information here can be better organized, better displayed, and more easily searched, we’re going to be updating more frequently with book reviews, new product announcements, and other cool content. You can see the beginnings of how we want it to work in the sidebar.

The site will be further customized, with upgrades to our online store likely to go live early in the new year (we’re beta-testing that now).

So, thanks for your continued patronage, and we hope to be able to bring you even more bang for your buck going forward.

Cheers,

– Chris @ The Beguiling

Reminder: Did you know we offer a subscription service for your comics?

They go by different names — Subscriptions, Pull Files, Hold Boxes, Pulls etc — mostly names about pulling things, like comics.While we haven’t advertised the fact, we at The Beguiling run a fantastic subscription/pull file service for comics customers. If you’re unfamiliar with the idea, here’s how it works:

  1. Provide us with a list of the comics you’d like to buy (usually two months in advance)
  2. We make sure those comics are ready for you when they come into the store!

You just come to the counter, say your name, and we produce your comics. It’s like being in a magical secret club! If you’re addicted to the thrill of weekly comic purchases, the best way to get your fix is with a pull file at The Beguiling.

Many of our new pullfile customers have set up pullfiles because it’s getting harder and harder to find the comics that they want on the racks. While we’re committed to ordering wide and stocking deep on all of the different types of comics in the industry, a pullfile is a great way to guarantee you’re getting the comics that you want.
