FEB 15: COMIC SHOP LADIES NIGHT AT PAGE & PANEL!

Will you be our Galentine, again? We’re going back to Page and Panel for another special night this February to celebrate ladies, friendships and all things nerdy with comics, coloring, door prizes, snacks, drinks, lotsa ladies and even more fun!

Time: Saturday, February 15, 2020 from 7pm – 11pm
Location: Page & Panel
Toronto, Ontario
Dress code: Geek Tie
Cost: FREE!

Comic Shop Ladies Night is back with another Galentine’s edition, a day to celebrate all the wonderful women in our lives! This is a ladies only event* where you can embrace your geeky side, discover new comics, share your opinions on movies, TV shows and video games, and cozy in from the cold with some comics! So put on your favorite Geek Tie attire (whether it’s a floofy dress or your favorite jeans) and come spend the evening with other nerdy ladies in a casual environment, surrounded by comics and merch.

This Galentines Celebration will be held at one of our favorite venues, Page & Panel, which will be open for business all night with special sales just for Ladies Night attendees.

Every hour we’ll also be giving away amazing door prizes, but you have to be there to win, so be there is what we’re saying! We’ve got comics, games, a nerdy photo booth, and of course our popular table for the best coloring book action in town, so bring your pencils and imagination. And we’ll also have Galentines for purchase to give to your favorite gals.

So why not spend this February celebrating Galentine’s Day, chatting and snacking with other great geeky gals? First timers and serial attendees are all welcome, but don’t forget to RSVP to get yourself on the guest list and to get your name entered for the door prizes!

This event is inclusive to all women, including those that identify as cisgender, transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary. Thank you to our wonderful community for supporting our intentions to build this event as a safe(r) space! We couldn’t do it without you. ♥

TONY MEERS “RETROMANCER: PAINTED LESSONS IN HETERONORMATIVITY” GALLERY SHOW & CONTEST!

Right now, in our gallery, we have a very special show leading up to Valentine’s Day: TONY MEERS— RETROMANCER: PAINTED LESSONS IN HETERONORMATIVITY. During his forty-year career Toronto artist TONY MEERS was a prolific commercial illustrator, with this selection of paintings from the 1980s and 1990s representing only a fraction of the hundreds of romance novel covers he produced.

All of the displayed pieces and more are ON SALE in-store for only $120, with $20 from every sale donated to Supporting Our Youth Toronto.

Plus, we’re holding a contest where you can WIN AN ORIGINAL PAINTING BY TONY MEERS! How, you ask? Well here’s how!

– Simply share an image from our Retroromancer art show on Twitter or Instagram! To win, you must follow and tag @TheBeguiling and use the hashtag #Retromancer. Winner will be chosen at random February 13th!

– Come up with an alternate title or a plot description based on one of the pieces! Share it and tag us on Instagram or Twitter and the staff will choose a winner February 14th! Just as before, you must be following and tag us (@TheBeguiling) and use the hashtag #Retromancer!

Thanks so much to Tony for allowing us to display his work, and swing on by and check it out! Seeing it all in display in the gallery is truly a sight to behold.

Announcing BDP’s first release: MAGICIAN A by Natsuko Ishitsuyo!

YOU READ THAT RIGHT! Beguiling owner and TCAF co-founder Peter Birkemoe is stepping back into the publishing game with the launch of the new publishing imprint BDP, and the first book on offer to you, gentle reader, is the astounding debut collection Magician A from Japanese artist Natsuko Ishitsuyo, translated by Jocelyne Allen!

With art heavily influenced by Ishitsuyo’s time studying art in the Czech Republic, the six stories collected in Magician A focus on young women discovering and playing with their own sexuality. The feelings in these stories are universal, but Ishitsuyo’s approach is not for the squeamish.

The translation was spearheaded and executed by Eisner Award winning translator Jocelyne Allen, who has worked on almost too many books to count at this point! You might be familiar with her translations of Juniji Ito (Fragments of HorrorSmashedShiverFrankenstein), Kabi Nagata (My Lesbian Experience with LonelinessMy Solo Exchange Diary), Riyoko Ikeda (Claudine!Rose of Versailles), Yuhki Kamatani (Our Dreams at Dusk), Fumi Yoshinaga (What Did You Eat Yesterday?), Asumiko Nakamura (ClassmatesMaiden Railways) to name just a few! The Beguiling’s own Penny Clark edited this collection to boot!

And guess what? The Kickstarter for the book is LIVE! GO AND BACK THE BOOK RIGHT NOW!! ❤

You can also read more of Jocelyne’s thoughts on Magician A over here on her brainvsbook blog!

Publisher Peter Birkemoe is the owner and operator of the world-famous Beguiling comic store in Toronto, Canada, and co-founder of the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. After years of supporting comic artists behind the scenes through his work as a bookseller, he’s made the decision that it’s time to again dip his toes into the world of publishing, with a focus on books both in English and in translation that aren’t finding a publisher elsewhere, in part because they are a little bit dirty. Dirty books need a home, too!

NOV 21: LYNDA BARRY & CHRIS WARE: ON COMICS AT THE WESTON FAMILY LEARNING CENTRE! *ONLINE TIX SOLD OUT/LIMITED QTY STILL AVAILABLE IN-STORE!

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 21 @ THE WESTON FAMILY LEARNING CENTRE @ THE AGO!

Lynda Barry and Chris Ware are two of today’s best-known and most innovative comics artists appearing in conversation!

Lynda Barry is an American cartoonist, author, and teacher known for her weekly comic strip Ernie Pook’s Comeek. A professor of interdisciplinary creativity, she appears to discuss Making Comics, her idiosyncratic curriculum that teaches people how to draw and write their own story. A beautiful and inspiring book whose core teaching is that creativity is vital to processing the world around us. Lynda was also one of the recipients of the 2019 MacArthur Foundation ‘genius’ grant!

Chris Ware is an American cartoonist known for his Acme Novelty Library series and the graphic novels Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth and Building Stories. His works explore themes of social isolation, emotional torment and depression. He appears to discuss Rusty Brown, a fully interactive, full-color articulation of the time-space interrelationships of three complete consciousnesses in the first half of a single midwestern American day and the tiny piece of human grit about which they involuntarily orbit.

Free tickets to this event will go live FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1ST at 5:00PM! In addition, a number of tickets are available with the purchase of RUSTY BROWN or pre-purchase of MAKING COMICS at The Beguiling (1 ticket per book purchases, while quantities last)

GET YOUR TICKETS HERE!

UPDATE 11/02: ONLINE TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT.  Don’t fret though! There are still a limited quantity of tickets available IN-STORE with the purchase of Rusty Brown or pre-order of Making Comics!

Books available at the event for purchase courtesy of The Beguiling!

E-tickets preferred! Save some paper if you can!

HEADS UP! No Manga May 24-26 ! Back issue basement is open (buuut)

Yup, it’s just what it says, all of our manga is offsite with us at another exciting year at ANIME NORTH! As such, we won’t have any of our manga available for purchase at the store this weekend but we will have TONS at Anime North so come see us there!

As well, we took all of the tables from our back issue basement to use at the convention, so while our basement is open it’s a little bit worse for wear. We apologize for the mess but it was either close it down or have it operate a little messily so we opted for the latter!

Thanks for all your understanding! May is bananas around here and we appreciate you rolling with it, with us!

MAY 20: The Beguiling is Closed Victoria Day!

In celebration of Queen Victoria’s birthday, The Beguiling and Little Island will be closed on Monday May 20th!

….

No, we haven’t found a sudden love of the Queen, we’re just all a little beat from TCAF and preparing for Anime North so we decided it might be nice to take advantage of this holiday!

We’ll be open regular hours the rest of the week!
