Shipping July 16th, 2008

The following items are scheduled to ship to The Beguiling on Wednesday, July 16th.

But first, we wanted to give a special shout-out to three books of note that are shipping this week:

Goddess Of War #1, 12.95: This is by frequent Beguiling and TCAF guest Lauren Weinstein, author of Girl Stories (amongst other books). It is by all accounts a truly outstanding graphic novel, massive in size. It’s about a Valkyrie who becomes the Goddess of War, but gives it all up for love. It’s going to be something else, we’re really looking forward to it.

REAL Volume 1, 10.95: One of our favourite (and best-selling) manga over the last few years has been the samurai manga VAGABOND, by Takehiko Inoue. Inoue is world-famous for his basketball manga SLAM DUNK, but VAGABOND, with it’s lush and detailed art and immensly gripping story is the one that’s really done it for us. Now Inoue, 15 years on a much stronger creator and storyteller, returns to basketball–and wheelchair basketball at that!–to tell a whole new story. I’ve read the first volume and it’s fantastic, a must-read.

ZOT: The Complete B&W Stories, $24.95: Scott McCloud’s ZOT! is an alternative comics classic, in many ways paving the way for some of the more mature and realistic superhero depictions we have today (more like Kurt Busiek than Geoff Johns, however). There are some really, really great comics in this book, and if you ever wondered what Scott McCloud’s non-instructional, fiction comics looked like, this is a pretty outstanding little deal.

Some great new stuff in the store…

Hey there readers! We just wanted to shed the spotlight on a few books and other items of interest now in stock at the store. It’s been a pretty amazing spring for new comics and graphic novels, and many of the items we’re spotlighting aren’t currently available anywhere else.

First up is a shot of our main table on the first floor, the centerpiece of which is the new biography Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko by Toronto author Blake Bell. We held a successful signing for this one earlier this week and we’ve still got signed copies if you missed out. Surrounding it are Centifolia, a sketchbook collection from Stuart Immonen, What It Is by Lynda Barry, Inside Outside Overlap by Billy Mavreas, Chiggers by Hope Larson (soft cover and hard cover), and Shooting War by Anthony Lappe and Dan Goldman (and some of these are signed too!)

We’ve also got the new Blutch book, a silent collection of work that is seemingly non-narrative called “Beauty” or La Beaute. Lovely.

Meanwhile, arriving this week to great acclaim is Cat Eyed Boy by Kazuo Umezu. If you’re a regular you probably know that Umezu’s earlier series Drifiting Classroom is an employee fav, and these massive two volumes collect the entire series of creepy revenge stories.

Dropping just this afternoon from Harper Collins, we’ve also got the new graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, adapted by P. Craig Russell. Also in stock is the fourth Warriors story, Warriors: Rise of Scourge adapted from the novel by Erin Hunter.

This week also had two new collections from Japanese creators. On the right we have the third and final collection of stories from Yoshihiro Tatsumi, Good Bye. This is amazing comics work, I’ve already finished this one and it’s just astonishing stuff. On the left is Yoshitaka Amano adapting The Magic Flute, which is a very, very pretty book (and big too…).

This week also saw re-stocks on two excellent DVDs. The Mindscape of Alan Moore is an acclaimed documentary that we had (and sold out of) a few months back, and we’re lucky to have restocked another few copies: Run, don’t walk. $34.95. We’ve also got more copies in stock of Justice League: The New Frontier, the animated adaptation of Canadian Darwyn Cooke’s cold war superhero epic The New Frontier. It’s just $24.95 for the two-disc special edition.

You might have heard on the internets that we’re the only store… in the world… that has the new Scott Pilgrim “Toronto” shirt. This shirt is not being reprinted, and we currently have plenty left of American Apparel Small, Medium, Large, and a few XLs. Once these are gone, they’re gone. $24.95 each, sorry, no mail-order on this item.

Finally, everyone’s favourite genre: YAOI! We’ve just received a shipment of 12 very adults-only Yaoi titles from publishers 801 Media and Be Beautiful that are not otherwise available in Canada. We should be receiving even more over the next two or three weeks, and hopefully our ordering hiccup on these titles is at an end. We’ll letcha know if anything changes.

And that’s it… FOR NOW.

– Christopher

Opens tonight!

SMASH Gallery
2880 Dundas Street West (at Keele)

June 19th, 7PM to 11PM

See the exquisite collection of 14 Samurai armor sets and paintings by 21 contemporary artists. Today the spirit and visual richness of the Samurai culture speaks to us through films, manga, and personal experience.

This is our Ode to Edo and the traditions that honoured the samurai essence during this time.

Featuring:

Amro Attia, Harvey Chan, Nathan Fox, Charlotte Greenwood, Hiroshi Hirakawa, Sam Hiti, Kurt Ketchum, Tessar Lo, Kagan Mcleod, Tyrel McNicol, Joe Morse, Jose Ortega, Yukiko Otsu, Ben Shannon, Jon Todd, Tomolennon, Martin Wittfooth, Yoskay Yamamoto, Andrew Zbihlyi, David Pepper.

The show runs through June 30th, just in case you get this note a little late. Be sure to check it out.

– Chris @ The Beguiling.

Shipping to The Beguiling June 18th, 2008

Hey there folks! Here’s what’s shipping to The Beguiling on Wednesday, June 18th, 2008.

Just a reminder: Because of the vagaries of distribution, some books ship to the East Coast and the West Coast on different weeks… Just because you see it on the “official” Diamond shipping list doesn’t actually mean it’s shipping to all retailers across North America. Not even close.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Meanwhile… It’s a huge week for new graphic novels! Check this out:

Astonishing X-Men 4, Y The Last Man 10, Umbrella Academy, Amano’s Magic Flute, MONSTER, and Kazuo Umezu’s CAT-EYED BOY. Whoo!

STEVE DITKO BOOK LAUNCH NEXT WEEK

The World of Steve Ditko Book Launch, with author Blake Bell
In partnership with The Merrill Collection
Wednesday, June 18th 7PM-9PM (NOTE TIME CHANGE)

http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=14508822758

The fabulous world of Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko comes to life in the fantastic new book by Toronto’s Blake Bell, published by Fantagraphics! THE WORLD OF STEVE DITKO is an exhaustively researched tome on the life and work of the reclusive author.

The Beguiling and The Toronto Comic Arts Festival, in association with The Merril Collection and The Toronto Public Library, and Fantagraphics Books, are proud to present the official hometown launch of this book! The evening will feature a presentation from the book and moderated Q&A featuring author Blake Bell.

U.K. television and radio personality Jonathan Ross, who debuted his hour-long “In Search of Steve Ditko” documentary on the BBC last September, has granted us the rights to show the documentary at the Toronto event. It hasn’t been seen since, but you’ll get to see it if you attend the event!

For more information on the book, visit Blake Bell’s website at http://www.ditko.comics.org/.
