Webcomics In Print: New In The Store

Did you know that The Beguiling stocks a full array of print-editions of popular webcomics? It’s true! Why, just this week we received a number of new collections of webcomics material not usually available anywhere but online, and direct from the publishers. Check out our recent webcomics acquisitions… (Warning: Not Safe For All Ages…):


Octopus Pie: A Brooklyn Drama, by Meredith Gran. $10.95
Collecting the popular webcomic strip by one of our great TCAF guests. A group of goofy misfits find love and infamy in Brooklyn, with really lovely, clean animation-inspired art.


Templar, Arizona Book One, by Spike. $15.00
A serialised graphic novella about a near-future sci-fi vision of Arizona. Great world-building here, and FINDER fans will really enjoy it.


Club Stripes: The Best Of Club Stripes Volume 1, by Various. $24.95
Full colour, beautifully printed, hardcore furry porn. The last time we had this in we sold out in under a week. We’re trying to keep this in stock permanently from now on, but this _will_ sell out quickly.


Club Stripes Presents: Undcovered Volume 1, by Miu. $19.95
This one is already sold out from the publisher, so the five copies we’ve got of this gay furry porn collection are first-come, first-served. No pun intended.


Love Can Be Different #1, by Miles-DF. $4.95
I haven’t read this one, but the cover is pretty. Furry, smutty.

When browsing the store, check out our webcomics collections on the second floor near the new comics rack. We’ve got lots of collections in stock including Dinosaur Comics, Perry Bible Fellowship, Girl Genius, Order of the Stick, Diesel Sweeties, Wigu, Goats, and dozens more.

Announce: "The Political Graphic Novel" in Toronto

TORONTO, (Feb. 12, 2008) – Luminato, Toronto’s Festival of Arts & Creativity, today unveiled its dynamic literary program for the 2008 Festival. Luminato’s Curator of Literary Programming, Devyani Saltzman, announced the program this afternoon at the Gladstone Hotel in downtown Toronto.

Chris Lorway, Luminato’s Director of Programming, is enthusiastic about the festival’s literary component. “For Luminato 2008, we decided to make stronger connections between our literary program and the overall festival. I am so pleased that we were able to find someone like Devyani Saltzman to curate this program for us. She’s a great addition to our team.”

Devyani Saltzman is pleased to see her curatorial vision becoming a reality. “It’s a pleasure to bring both Canadian and international authors together around literary and political themes in addition to showcasing new works. I find the richest discussions occur because of unexpected collaborations.”

The 2008 line-up includes perspectives on South Asia, a focus on war and politics through illustration, a celebration of a renowned literary master, the launch of the third installment of a city-centric anthology, as well as a festival of short stories.

The Political Graphic Novel
Sunday, June 8, 7:00 p.m.
The Al Green Theatre (at the Miles Nadal JCC)
750 Spadina Avenue (Spadina at Bloor)

From the war in Iraq to the life of revolutionary icon Ché Guevera, the medium of graphic novels becomes political in this stimulating evening of literature, illustration and discussion.

With award-winning Canadian author and illustrator Bernice Eisenstein (I Was a Child of Holocaust Survivors), Spain Rodriguez (Che: A Graphic Biography) and the Canadian premiere of Anthony Lappé and Dan Goldman’s Shooting War, which explores the war in Iraq and the influence of alternative news media. The Village Voice describes Shooting War as a “light-handed but searing political satire Shooting War…taking the Sunday comic strip places it could never have gone before.”

The evening will be moderated by Peter Birkemoe, owner of Toronto’s top graphic novel and comics bookstore, The Beguiling.

For more information on the various Luminato Events, please visit http://www.luminato.com/index.php.

Please note: Miriam Katin will not be appearing at this event, we apologize for any confusion.

In Conversation with Michel Rabagliati
Saturday, March 15th at 5pm
Lillian H. Smith Library, 239 College St., Toronto
(College just east of Spadina)
FREE

The Beguiling is happy to announce that Michel Rabagliati, author of the Paul series of graphic novels including the newly-released Paul Goes Fishing will be participating in a moderated Q&A and book signing session on Saturday, March 5th at 5pm, at The Lillian H. Smith Library in Toronto.

Rabagliati will be interviewed on stage by The Beguiling’s Peter Birkemoe, on his life and art as well as his new graphic novel. Admission to the event is completely free.

Sponsored by The Beguiling, Canada’s premier retailer of comics and graphic novels, and Drawn & Quarterly, publisher of fine graphic novels.

New at The Beguiling: SKIM and PAUL GOES FISHING

Newly arrived at The Beguiling are two great Canadian graphic novels, Skim and Paul Goes Fishing.

Skim, by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki, is a wonderful graphic novel about teenage longing and the kind of delicate relationships we form with the people around us in high school. This one will likely be rare down south as it’s published by Groundwood Books, an excellent Canadian book publisher without many inroads into the comics direct market. Author Mariko Tamaki has a graphic novel coming in the MINX line this fall, and Jillian Tamaki is a well-known illustrator. Her art book Gilded Lillies is shown in the background.

Meanwhile, Michel Rabagliati’s new graphic novel Paul Goes Fishing is the next in the series of autobiographically-tinged Paul books, following on Paul Gets A Summer Job and Paul Moves Out, also published by Montreal’s Drawn + Quarterly. This one is much more intensely personal and tragicomic graphic novel than the other Paul material, but I guarantee it’ll please fans of the books as well as newcomers to Rabagliati’s work.

A nice boon to both graphic novels is that Skim and Paul Goes Fishing have been recipients of Doug Wright Awards, Canada’s graphic novel awards, so you can be assured of their quality. Both books are now available in The Beguiling online bookstore, at http://www.beguiling.com/bookstore.asp.

Shipping February 13th, 2008

Hey there folks, here’s what’s scheduled to show up at The Beguiling this week from Diamond. I should point out that we receive stuff NOT from Diamond all the time, and while I do try and make note of it here on the blog (Michel Rabagliati’s new Paul book, Paul Goes Fishing is now in stock!), there’s usually too much stuff to list. It’s probably worth your time to come by…

Now, we sincerely suggest that if you want to see some great a/v presentationing and see the creators interviewed, then you really ought to go to the event at the North York Public Library.
