NOV 2: WAYWARD FINALE PARTY WITH WRITER/CO-CREATOR JIM ZUB!

Wedneday, October 31 sees the release of the final issue of the hit series WAYWARD from Image Comics! When the series began, we held the launch party at The Beguiling so now that it’s wrapping up it only made sense to team up with series co-creator/writer JIM ZUB to throw a big ol WAYWARD FINALE PARTY at the store on Friday, November 2nd!

Join us starting at 6PM for a chance to get your books signed, make mirth and mark the end of Wayward! We’ll also be stocked up on lots of copies of Jim’s other comics such as CHAMPIONS, AVENGERS, RICK & MORTY VS DUNGEONS & DRAGONS and plenty more! Jim will also be bringing his own selection of back issues and variant covers just for this event, and to top it all of we’ll have a PRINT GIVEAWAY!

It’s no secret that we love Jim here at the store so we’re super excited we could welcome him back and send WAYWARD off with the party it deserves!
SEE YOU THERE!

“Pacific Northwest. 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller and Mandy Bloom lead a loving and peaceful existence.

SEPTEMBER 22: POW POW PRESS AT THE BEGUILING!

The fourth and final volume of the Almost Summer series will be available in bookstores on September 13th and Pow Pow Press will be celebrating its release with a book launch in Toronto! Join us at The Beguiling on September 22nd for an evening with the Pow Pow crew. Sophie Bédard will be there, alongside Michel Hellman (Nunavik), Cathon (Vampire Cousins) and publisher Luc Bossé!

“Almost Summer strikes a perfect balance between drama and comedy, chronicling the daily life of a group of teenagers. In this final chapter, Anthony is looking for an apartment while Michelle is looking for a prom dress. Matthew is trying to make sense of his own feelings while Emily is trying to assert herself. High school is almost over. But you know what they say: it’s not over till it’s over. And even then, it’s not really the end.”

This event will kick off at 7PM! There’ll be a presentation and talk along with a Q&A and a chance to get your books signed! See you there!
