The Beguiling, Canada’s premier retailer of comics and graphic novels, will be representing the original art sales over two-dozen cartoonists at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Sharing booth space with Canada’s Drawn & Quarterly in booth 1529, The Beguiling will feature original art for sale by some of the best and brightest graphic novelists working in the medium.

A select number of new pieces will be available for sale at San Diego, including the complete illustrations by Maurice Vellekoop for his “ABC: A Homoerotic Primer”, new pages from Kevin Huizenga’s “Or Else” and “Ganges” series’, new pieces from Anders Nilsen’s “Big Questions,” and many of the pages from Jordan Crane’s charming graphic novel “The Clouds Above”.

The full catalogue of works represented by The Beguiling are available for viewing at our website, http://www.beguiling.com. If you’re an art lover and would like any specific pieces brought to San Diego for inspection or purchase, please contact us immediately at mail@beguiling.com (and no later than Wednesday July 25th at 6pm).

Shipping to The Beguiling: July 25th

Hey folks! Here’s what’s shipping this week to The Beguiling on Wednesday, July 25th.

Also of Note: We got a new issue of Berlin! Yes, that’s right! Jason Lutes’ Berlin #13 is now in stock. Also cool? A new issue of Paul Pope’s THB! This one is… well, rare. I don’t want to freak you out or anything, but THB: Mars #1 is a San Diego Comic Con exclusive, limited to just 2000 copies. We have them in stock here, for $6.31, tax included.

Oo, and also interesting? Warren Ellis’ new novel Crooked Little Vein is released tomorrow, and we’ll have copies (and hopefully enough to last through the weekend). This one isn’t shipping to comic stores for at least another week and was probably drastically underordered by most bookstores, so be sure to come by and pick up a copy for yourself… SOON!
