Weekend Sale – Mexico Earthquake Fundraiser

Regular Beguiling customers already know how enthused we are about contributing the vintage comics that are on display in the extraordinary “Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters” exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

In the course of the show’s otherwise festive opening week, GDT has asked everyone to consider making a donation in support of earthquake relief in his native Mexico. (In September, the country was devastated by several powerful earthquakes.)

We already have a lot to be thankful about this Thanksgiving, and we’ll be showing our gratitude to GDT and the AGO for their ongoing support by running an in-store fundraiser. This Thanksgiving long weekend, The Beguiling will donate 100% of the sticker price of any one graphic novel purchased Sunday or Monday (Oct 8-9) to Ambulante, Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal’s crowdfunding campaign, and to UNICEF’s relief efforts in Mexico.

That’s right: We’ll be donating the entire value of a (1) graphic novel of your choice purchased on either day to charity. If you’ve been eyeing a new read, now’s the time. Drop by on Sunday or Monday and join us in supporting Mexico earthquake relief!

Not in Toronto this weekend? Donate directly to the campaigns here:

The Beguiling will be open Thanksgiving Sunday from noon to 6pm and holiday Monday from 11am-7pm.

TERMS: Limit one book per customer. Must be a book published prior to September 15, 2017. In store only, on Sunday October 8 and Monday October 9, 2017.

ABOUT WEAVERS #1

WEAVERS #1
(W) Simon Spurrier (A) Dylan Burnett (CA) Dylan Burnett

What’s to Love: From The Godfather to The Sopranos, organized crime stories have always fascinated us. Weavers is a macabre story with a twist on the familiar drama of dons, capos, and made men, mixing in supernatural elements that only writer Simon Spurrier (The Spire, Cry Havoc) can think up. It’s perfect for fans of Day Men or Scalped!

What It Is: Sid, a young man with nothing going for himself, becomes an unlikely new addition to The Weavers, a brutal, East Coast crime family whose members are bound to loyalty thanks to the supernatural spider inside each one of them, granting them powerful—and often grotesque—abilities. Once he realizes what he’s capable of, Sid sets out to pursue his own secret agenda, counter to the group’s objectives. But he doesn’t have much time—the longer the spider is inside him, the more loyal he becomes to The Weavers…
