TCAF Posters Now Available Online

Just a reminder that all five TCAF posters by Seth, Marc Bell, James Jean, and Darwyn Cooke (x2) are now available for purchase in The Beguiling Art Store, in the Prints and Posters section.

Beguiling Posters & Prints Store

In addition we’ve got the awesome Beguiling 20th Anniversary Print by James Jean, Kagan McLeod’s unbelievably cool “History of Rap” poster, and a variety of other posters and prints.

All posters and prints shipped rolled in an incredibly strong poster-tube, and are shipped with a flat shipping rate. That means the more posters you order, the cheaper the shipping!

Also, make sure to take advantage of our new Complete TCAF poster set (shown, right) which will make these posters even more affordable.

If you weren’t one of the folks lucky enough to score free tickets to a screening of Persepolis last month, then we’ve got good news for you!

Industry Night: Growing Up With Comics Book Launch

Held the last Wednesday of every month at The Victory Café on Markham St., Comics Industry Night is a chance for comics professionals and fans to meet and greet, usually whilst celebrating the release and launch of new work.

INDUSTRY NIGHT: NEGATIVE BURN and COMIC EYE BOOK LAUNCH
Wednesday, March 26th, 7pm-10pm
The Victory Café, 581 Markham Street
(Just south of The Beguiling, near Bathurst and Bloor)
FREE

This month Comics Industry Night is proud to celebrate the launch of two great books featuring talented Canadian comic artists.

NEGATIVE BURN #17 features the short graphic novella “Growing Up With Comics” by Ron Kasman and R.G. Taylor. It tells the story of the comic book culture in Toronto in the 1950s, 60s and 70s then on into the present day. Touching on many Toronto comics landmarks, the story is like a walk down memory lane for long-time comics fans and an introduction to Toronto’s rich comics history for newcomers to the medium.

THE COMIC EYE is a new book-length anthology of comics… about comics! Published and Edited by Hamilton’s Mark Innes, the book features 50 autobiographical strips by 50 different creators, running the gamut from Fred Hembeck and Matt Feazel to Bernie Mierault and Nick Craine (and Mssrs. Kasman and Taylor make an appearance as well).

Many of the creators will be in attendance including Kasman, Taylor, and Innes, and the evening will include presentations from both works. It should be an entertaining evening! Hope to see you there!

– Chris @ The Beguiling
P.S.: We’re aware that this conflicts with the SKIM launch scheduled for that evening and we’re sorry about that! We’d booked this event back in December and there’s no changing it. Still, that just means that no matter what kind of comics you’re into there’s something to do that Wednesday, so get out there!

EVENT: Art Spiegelman in Toronto

COMIX 101: Forbidden Images and the Art of Outrage Featuring Art Spiegelman, author of MAUS
Thursday, April 3rd, 2008 at 7:30PM
Isabel Bader Theatre, 93 Charles St. West
Adults: $40, Students/Seniors: $25
http://www.uofttix.ca

Art Spiegelman will be coming to town in a few weeks in a very special seminar/lecture at UofT. While we’re not directly affiliated with this event, Spiegelman is a major comics talent and it seems that the subject of his lecture will include discussion of the many recent headline-grabbing international events involving comics… It sounds like a really solid event and worth attending.

Tickets can be purchased online at UofTtix.ca.

SHIPPING MARCH 19, 2008

(How’s that for service, I got this one up 5 and a half days before the books came out).

This is what’s shipping to the store this week from Diamond… We’ve already got a bunch of the “new” manga, including the final volume of Phoenix (shown).

New This Week: March 12 (late a day…)

Sorry, it’s been a busy week and so we’re a day late posting the new comics list. I resolve to get this sorted out from now on, apologies.

On a positive note though, posting this a day late enables me to mention we just got a bunch of awesome new manga:

Vagabond Volume 27
Phoenix Volume 12
Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 16
Case Closed: Detective Conan Volume 22

None of which shipped through Diamond this week. So that’s something…

Justice League: The New Frontier DVD and Comic Sale!

This week sees the release of the new Justice League: The New Frontier DVD, based on the comics by Canadian author Darwyn Cooke, as well as a new comic featuring tales from the New Frontier universe by Cooke, David Bullock, and Toronto’s J. Bone and Mike Cho. Cool eh?

We were trying really hard to put together a signing featuring Darwyn Cooke and the crew, and a screening of the film… we even hinted pretty strongly at it over the past few months. While the creators were up for it, unfortunately we just couldn’t make it happen on our end, and we’d like to apologize to everyone who was looking forward to it. Hopefully we can put something together in the future.

To make up for it though, we’re offering a great deal to celebrate Darwyn Cooke’s comics work! Until March 31st, pick up Justice League: The New Frontier on DVD or Justice League: The New Frontier Special Comic Book, and get 10% off any of Darwyn Cooke’s comics backlist! That includes:

DC The New Frontier Volume 1, DC The New Frontier Volume 2, Absolute DC The New Frontier, The Spirit Volume 1, Batman: Ego and Other Tales HC, Catwoman: Dark End Of The Street, SOLO: Darwyn Cooke, and all of the recent The Spirit back issues.

That’s 10% off of the U.S. Cover price, making for a pretty substantial savings!

All of the Darwyn Cooke items (including the new DVD and comics) are featured on a Canadian-centric table on the main floor of The Beguiling, which includes a plethora of great comics and graphic novels by Canadian creators. Check everything out in-store!
