The Beguiling: Your Source For Holiday Gift Giving

We just wanted to write a quick note thanking Tom Spurgeon at ComicsReporter.com for recommending The Beguiling twice in his Holiday Gift Guide. In his post “171 Reasons To Spend Your Shopping Money On Comics This Year,” Spurgeon lists a number of excellent comics, art, and services related to the comics industry to make holiday gift-giving a breeze. It’s a great shopping guide all-around, and we’re particularly pleased to see just how many of his comic and graphic novel selections are in stock and for sale in the store right now… by my count, we’ve got 9 of the first 10 books he mentions (I don’t think we’ve got the Blondie one…).

On the big list, The Beguiling Original Art Store clocks in at #32, with Spurge recommending it as “…a staggering line-up of cartoonists with work available here, from big-title alt-comics pages to more rarely seen work…”. We show up again at entry #152, this time for The Beguiling Bookstore, and particularly for our ability to track down rare and hard-to-find items.

It’s always nice to be recognized for the hard work we put in trying to make the store great. As always, if there’s anything you’re looking for this holiday season, be it original art, graphic novels, prints or whatever, just let us know and we’ll be happy to help you out.

– The Beguiling Staff

The Beguiling and the U.S. / Canadian Exchange Rate

While things have much improved since the printed Canadian price on many books became a hot issue in 2007, it is still a problem we deal with every day. Many publishers and distributors have tried to get more up to date with their pricing, but much old stock remains.

At The Beguiling, we’ve taken this disparity very seriously for over 8 years now, instituting our policy of manually adjusting the exchange rate at the checkout to reflect an accurate exchange, on the vast majority of books we sell. This means that back when one dollar U.S. was worth about $1.20 Canadian, and the books from Marvel or DC were treating the exchange more like a U.S. buck was worth $1.60 Canadian, our customers were paying the lower price.

We’ve always tried to find a fair and equitable solution to the problem of outrageous price disparities, and our customers have told us time and time-again how much they appreciate it.

Now, as the Canadian dollar has reached par with the U.S. dollar, The Beguiling has decided to sell most of the major comics publishers at the US cover price, in Canadian dollars. This includes Marvel, DC, Image and Darkhorse, as well as many of the larger Manga publishers. For all other product with a Canadian price printed on the book, we are using a current exchange rate at the register to determine the Canadian prince. Of course, exceptions include anything that is stickered at a higher price due to rarity (back-issues, out-of-print books), books from outside of the U.S. and Canada, and in issues where the price of an object is in dispute The Beguiling reserves the right to set the final price. We have done this to make our policy as clear and concise as possible for our customers, and because we feel it’s the fair thing to do.

As the value of our dollar continues to bounce, we will continue to address this issue in an expedient manner, aiming to give Canadian and international shoppers the best value for their money on the vast array of comics, graphic novels, original art, and other products that we carry. As always, if you have any questions please contact us at mail@beguiling.com.

Thanks for shopping at The Beguiling!

A Busy Comics Weekend In Toronto

If you enjoy comic books and live in the City of Toronto, this is going to be a very busy weekend for you. Tighten your laces, sharpen your pencils, and bring a comfy cushion to sit on:

Saturday October 20th: 24 Hour Comics Day @ The Burrow
The Beguiling is proud to be sponsoring an event for 24 HOUR COMICS DAY, at The Burrow, an Art Centre and Shop just down the street from us. 24 Hour Comics Day is an event for people to create a 24 page comic in just 24 hours. Have you got what it takes? Starts at 2PM Saturday and goes until 2PM Sunday. Free to attend, but you’ve gotta register in advance. For info, head over to The Burrow Blog at http://burrownews.blogspot.com/.

Saturday October 20th: Rutu Modan & James Sturm @ Harbourfront
As part of the International Festival of Authors going on at Harbourfront, graphic novelists Rutu Modan (Exit Wounds) and James Sturm (Golem’s Mighty Swing) will be reading from their work at 12pm in the Brigantine Room this Saturday. Tickets are $15, and are available at The Beguiling and at the Harbourfront Box Office.

Also! Purchase a ticket to this event (or to Adrian Tomine’s signing the following weekend) from us at The Beguiling and you’ll be eligible for a 30% discount off of the new books by these authors. That’s 30% off of EXIT WOUNDS, JAMES STURM’S AMERICA, or SHORTCOMINGS. That doesn’t make your ticket to these events free, but it makes it pretty darned close.

Note: The sale price is only valid at the time of purchase of the ticket. Sale price is good for all three books, regardless of which ticket is purchased. There is a limit of 5 of each book per customer.

Sunday, October 21st: TRANSMISSION-X Art Show @ Insomnia
Just up the street from The Beguiling on Bloor is Insomnia, a bar and restaurant with an artistic bent. For the month of October, Insomnia is going to be featuring art from the Toronto online comics collective TRANSMISSION-X, and the big party to celebrate the event goes down this Sunday at 7pm. You can find out more about T-X and the art show at http://www.transmission-x.com/?p=44.

Monday October 22nd: Comics Stenography at Trampoline Hall
Okay, bear with me here. Trampoline Hall is a literary salon and lecture series, where non-experts give lectures on a variety of subjects. And then some of the city’s best comics artists will interpret the proceedings–the speakers, the attendees, the bartender–in comics form. It’s all going down at Fort York’s blue Barracks at 8pm (just take the 511 streetcar south from Bathurst station).

The artists in attendance include Roxanne Bielskis, Arthur de la Cruz, Shannon Gerard, Emily Holton, Stuart and Katherine Immonen, Eric Kim, Blair Kitchen, Jeff Lemire, Steve Manale, Kagan McLeod, Ramon Perez, Ben Shannon, Fiona Smyth, Diana Tamblyn, Zach Worton, and Reverend Aitor.

Tickets are $5 at the door, it starts at 8 sharp, find out more at http://www.trampolinehall.net.

I think there’s something else going on as well… pay attention to this space for updates.
