Store closed for Canada Day, Tuesday, July 1st.

21-e1348153641978So we don’t usually close for public holidays, but we’re actually going to take the day off on Tuesday, July 1st. The store will be closed. Happy Canada Day!

Update: New comics will be available on Wednesday July 2nd at 11am, as usual!

This closure comes mostly because it turns out we’re not getting our delivery of new comics from Diamond on Tuesday July 1st (we normally get our deliveries on Tuesdays so that they can be ready for you guys on Wednesdays). Our new comics delivery is arriving SOMETIME on Wednesday July 2nd. Which means pulls won’t be ready until the afternoon at the earliest. If you can come in a little later that day, you may want to. Of course, we’ll work as quickly and diligently as possible to get the books out as fast as possible, but it all depends on when the shipment arrives.

Thanks for your understanding!

- Chris @ The Beguiling

CONTEST: Win Passes to See Tiger & Bunny The Movie: The Rising


So, TIGER & BUNNY! If you’re not familiar with it, it’s effectively a Japanese anime superhero series, and it was blisteringly popular upon release in Japan and has cooled down to ‘major franchise’ there. It hasn’t really taken off in North America yet, perhaps because we have a lot (a lot) of our own superheroes to contend with, but for fans of cool mech designs, or superheroes, or even sentai shows like Kamen Rider or Power Rangers, there’s an awful lot to like about Tiger & Bunny. Check out the trailer:

Neat, huh? Oh and the name: One is ferocious and one is quick/young. Tiger & Bunny. Even if you’ve never seen the anime TV series, this movie is a great place to start. Tickets are available now at
