SIGNING THIS FRIDAY: Russell Lissau and Howard Wong

The Batman Strikes Signing with Russell Lissau
and special guest Howard Wong, creator of After The Cape
Friday, August 29th, 5pm-7pm
@ The Beguiling, 601 Markham Street
FREE

Writer Russell Lissau will be signing at The Beguiling this Friday, August 29th, from 5pm to 7pm! Russell will be signing copies of the FINAL ISSUE of smash all-ages title The Batman Strikes! as well as copies of his other work including HOPE: NEW ORLEANS, a benefit book for victims of the hurricanes that ravaged New Orleans.

Also signing this Friday will be Toronto’s own Howard Wong, author of After The Cape from Image Comics. Very much not a title for all-ages, After The Cape is the gripping story of a man who gave up being a superhero to provide for his family, and how that decision slowly destroyed his life.

Both authors will be on hand to help us kick off our end-of-summer sale (details shortly) this weekend.

See you there!

– Chris @ The Beguiling

New In Store: Prints by Michael Cho

Visitors to The Toronto Comic Arts Festival will likely remember the spectacular Transmission-X installation room, featuring original art, prints, posters, and life-sized cut-outs of the characters of many of Toronto’s best comics artists. Particularly striking were the prints of artist Michael Cho, featuring a limited but vivid colour palette, and a mix of quiet Toronto neighborhood scenes and bold and bright adventurers.

The Beguiling is pleased to announce that we will now be selling these prints outside of the confines of festivals and conventions, in store. The prints come in two sizes, and retail for between $30 and $50. In addition, we’ve had a number of these prints framed in the handsome black frame style you see above and to the right, and framed prints run between $130 and $150.

The following prints are currently on hand:

“Superfriends” – $30
“Cap vs. Cap” – $30

“Toronto Back Alleys #4” $30
“Toronto Back Alleys #7” $30 (shown top, available framed for $130)
“Toronto Back Alleys #12” $30

“OMAC” $50 (available framed for $150)
“Uncanny X-men” $50 (available framed for $150)
“Fear Agent” $50 (available framed for $150)
“The Killing Girl” $50 (shown above right, available framed for $150)

All prints are available for viewing in store. Please check with the main floor cashier or view several of the framed prints in the stairwell gallery.

Doug Wright Awards: Friday August 8th!

The Doug Wright Awards for Canadian Cartooning is pleased to announce that Lynn Johnston, the award-winning cartoonist behind the long-running comic strip For Better or For Worse, will be the guest of honour at their 2008 awards ceremony.

Organized in partnership with the Toronto Public Library, the free event will take place Friday Aug. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Toronto Reference Library during which time Johnston will be inducted into the “Giants of the North”; the Canadian Cartoonists’ Hall of Fame.

Carried in more than 2,000 newspapers around the world, For Better or For Worse has been collected in more than 30 best-selling books since it first appeared in September 1979, making Johnston arguably the best-known and most successful Canadian cartoonist ever.

Over her three-decade career Johnston has received a number of honours including a Gemini Award (for her animated FBorFW TV series), a Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist (the first woman winner in the history of the National Cartoonists Society) and a Pulitzer Prize nomination for her controversial gay storyline in the early 1990s. In addition, in 1992 she became a Member of the Order of Canada.

On August 8, Johnston will join other giants of Canadian cartooning like Peter Whalley, George Feyer and Doug Wright, when she is inducted into the Giants of the North Hall of Fame. The event will feature a retrospective of her more than 30-year career, a moderated Q&A with the audience and a book signing with Johnston.

The ceremony will comprise just part of the 4th Annual Doug Wright Awards, the country’s premier comics awards, which recognizes the best in new and established cartoonists and graphic novelists. The 2008 Wrights will see announcement of the winners of the Best Book trophy, Best Emerging Talent trophy and the “Pigskin Peters” award; a new category dedicated to non-traditional or non-narrative cartooning.

As usual, The Wright Awards will also play host to the best and brightest in Canada’s cartooning community from Chester Brown (Louis Riel) and Seth (Palookaville) to Ho Che Anderson (King) and Mariko Tamaki (Skim).

The awards will be decided by a jury made up of members of the country’s arts and cultural community, including: author and film critic Katrina Onstad, cartoonist Ho Che Anderson, Toronto book seller Marc Glassman, writer/performer Mariko Tamaki and Power Plant curator Helena Rickett.
