ANNOUNCE: KAZU KIBUISHI & KEAN SOO FEBRUARY 5TH

(Please include in your listings!)

GRAPHICALLY SPEAKING 2008, with Kazu Kibuishi & Kean Soo
Tuesday February 5th @ 6:30pm
North York Central Library, Concourse Level
@ North York Subway Station
FREE

Presented in association with THE BEGUILING and Scholastic Canada

The two co-editors of the fantastic FLIGHT Anthologies, Kazu Kibuishi and Kean Soo will be in town to debut their brand new graphic novels AMULET and JELLABY. This event is part of the Toronto Public Library’s massive Keep Toronto Reading campaign! Both Kean and Kazu will be interviewed on stage by … me? “The Beguiling’s Christopher Butcher,” in the vein of last year’s event with Bryan Lee O’Malley. One assumes that signing and sketching will follow the event…

amulet-200.jpgAMULET VOLUME 1: In the tradition of action adventure series like BONE and The Chronicles of Narnia comes AMULET, by Kazu Kibuishi and published by Scholastic Books. I’ve read this one and really enjoyed it, I particularly think it’s target audience is going to love it. It feels like another application of “Video game storytelling” which is either a pejorative, compliment, or accurate descriptor depending on who’s using the term. At any rate, I’ve got a whole whack of questions for Kazu already…

jellaby-200.jpgJELLABY VOLUME 1: When Portia hears strange noises in the woods behind her house, the last thing she expects to find is a giant purple dragon named Jellaby! Published by Hyperion books, Jellaby is by my buddy Kean and Tuesday the 5th is the OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE FOR THE BOOK! You know what that means: Party! At any rate, I’ve read the advance of this first volume and enjoyed it, and it’s received some pretty outstanding reviews so far. I think the kids are really gonna dig it.

This is going to be a very fun event which will actually be of interest to all-ages, from younger readers captivated by these new graphic novels right through to adults who loved the FLIGHT anthologies. We’re also really proud to be teaming up with The Toronto Public Library again this year, bringing graphic novels to the masses and the masses into our public library system. If you’re in Toronto, we hope you won’t miss this event. We may even be able to secure punch and pie for you.

PERSEPOLIS CONTEST

We’ve teamed up with Mongrel Media and The Consulate General of France in Toronto to give away 10 double passes to a preview screening of PERSEPOLIS, the new animated film based on the graphic novels by Marjane Satrapi! The screening is this Thursday January 10th at 7pm in downtown Toronto. Here’s how you can win passes:

RULES:

1. Be subscribed to The Beguiling’s events mailing list, at http://www.beguiling.com
2. Send an e-mail to chris@beguiling.com with your name, telephone number, and “PERSEPOLIS CONTEST” in the subject line. It should look like this:

SUBJECT: PERSEPOLIS CONTEST, Chris Butcher, 416-867-5309

3. Send that e-mail before Tuesday, January 8th at 11:59pm EST.
4. Entrants must be 18 years of age or older (sorry kids, get your parents to enter for you). Only one entry per person. Winner(s) must be subscribed to The Beguiling mailing list for the duration of the contest to claim their prize. Winner will be determined by random draw. Not open to residents of Quebec because they’ve got pretty harsh rules about this sort of thing.
5. Winner must actually be able to attend on Thursday at 7pm, because otherwise that’s not really very nice to the people who actually want to go.
6. Odds of winning depend on number of entrants, but are roughly 250:1.

The winner will be contacted Wednesday morning, and we’ll send out an e-mail to all entrants around that time.

GOOD LUCK!

– Chris @ The Beguiling

Shipping Wednesday, January 9th

Back to normal shipping this week folks! Also, this week marks the very final installment of my one-time favourite series IRON WOK JAN with volume 27. I have to admit that I’ve fallen way behind in Jan’s disgusting culinary adventure, but who would have thought when this series started that it would make it all the way to 27 volumes? Cool beans. I’ll probably pick this one up just-cuz.

The following titles are scheduled to be in the store this Wednesday.

Founded in 1987, The Beguiling has set a new standard in Canada for comics and graphic novel retail. Showcasing the largest selection of alternative, underground and avant-garde graphic story telling in the country, The Beguiling has a worldwide reputation for excellence. Among the many accolades afforded the store, the most prestigious was the first-ever Will Eisner Spirit of Retailing Award for excellence in retailing.

In its long history The Beguiling sponsored many book launches, author signings, readings, and other comics events with legendary creators including Robert Crumb, Harlan Ellison, Jamie Hernandez, Neil Gaiman, Joann Sfar, and literally hundreds more. In 2003 several members of The Beguiling staff founded The Toronto Comic Arts Festival, bringing alternative and independent comics creators from around the world to Toronto to celebrate the best of comic art. Held every two years, the show continues to thrive, growing in size with each iteration.

The Beguiling is proud to act as the official art representative for dozens of talented comics artists, cartoonists, and illustrators. We sell original artwork from these cartoonists on a consignment basis, to ensure the majority of the proceeds go directly to them. Please visit our online art store at http://www.beguiling.com/artstore1a.asp.

The store regularly buys old comics published from the 1930’s up to the present day. New comic books come in every Wednesday, and new shipments of Japanese anime every Wednesday & Friday. New graphic novels arrive regularly, and thanks to our attention to detail and commitment to diversity, we receive many books before any other retail outlet. If you can’t find it anywhere else, The Beguiling probably has it, or can get it for you.

The Beguiling is located at 601 Markham Street, just west of Bathurst and south of Bloor on the same block as the Historic Honest Ed’s department store.
The closest TTC stop is Bathurst Station, on the Bloor Subway line.

For further directions to the store, why not try Google Maps? (Click here).
