Store closed for Canada Day, Tuesday, July 1st.

21-e1348153641978So we don’t usually close for public holidays, but we’re actually going to take the day off on Tuesday, July 1st. The store will be closed. Happy Canada Day!

Update: New comics will be available on Wednesday July 2nd at 11am, as usual!

This closure comes mostly because it turns out we’re not getting our delivery of new comics from Diamond on Tuesday July 1st (we normally get our deliveries on Tuesdays so that they can be ready for you guys on Wednesdays). Our new comics delivery is arriving SOMETIME on Wednesday July 2nd. Which means pulls won’t be ready until the afternoon at the earliest. If you can come in a little later that day, you may want to. Of course, we’ll work as quickly and diligently as possible to get the books out as fast as possible, but it all depends on when the shipment arrives.

Thanks for your understanding!

CONTEST: Win passes to see BORGMAN

Meanwhile, on a COMPLETELY different note, The Beguiling’s owner Mr. Peter Birkemoe rather enjoyed a film at TIFF this year. It was called Borgman, by Director Alex Van Wamerdam. It is “Surreal, Creepy, and Funny”. Want to see what sort of film Peter likes? Enter this contest.

Pre-purchase your copy of SECONDS beginning Monday, June 23rd, get a free ticket to the Toronto launch.

secondsThe short version: Come buy SECONDS from us, either by paying in advance starting June 23rd, or once we get the book in the store starting July 15th, and you get a free ticket to the Toronto launch event with Bryan Lee O’Malley and friends (a $10 value!). 

Long Version: SO! We’re doing a cool event to celebrate the launch of SECONDS, the new graphic novel by Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley. The event is on Wednesday, July 30th, and it’s at The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema just around the corner from our store. It’s going to be a cool event, with an interview and a presentation and some fun stuff. We think you’ll enjoy it.

Because we’re expecting a lot of people, we had to rent a big space, and that’s The Bloor. We pay for things like this by selling books, and so if you’re buying your books from us 1) Thank you! and 2) we’ll give you a free ticket! If you’re choosing to buy your books elsewhere, well, ok I guess, but to help offset the cost of the event, we’re selling tickets for $10.

SECONDS goes on sale beginning Tuesday, July 15th, and we will have books that day (barring disaster). If you want to pre-purchase a copy of SECONDS, and get your ticket early, you can come and buy one in-store beginning Monday, June 23rd. You’ll get your ticket to the event, and we’ll give you something you can exchange for your copy of the book when it arrives in store July 15th.

(Oh, and we said that you could pre-purchase starting the 16th, originally. Our bad, the tickets aren’t ready yet. Pre-purchase starts on the 23rd.)

So! This sounds a lot more complicated than it actually is. Come buy SECONDS from us, either buy paying in advance starting June 23rd, or once we get the book in the store starting July 15th, and you get a free ticket to the event (a $10 value!). 

Thanks for reading.

CONTEST: Win Passes to See Tiger & Bunny The Movie: The Rising

tigerandbunny2poster

So, TIGER & BUNNY! If you’re not familiar with it, it’s effectively a Japanese anime superhero series, and it was blisteringly popular upon release in Japan and has cooled down to ‘major franchise’ there. It hasn’t really taken off in North America yet, perhaps because we have a lot (a lot) of our own superheroes to contend with, but for fans of cool mech designs, or superheroes, or even sentai shows like Kamen Rider or Power Rangers, there’s an awful lot to like about Tiger & Bunny. Check out the trailer:

Neat, huh? Oh and the name: One is ferocious and one is quick/young. Tiger & Bunny. Even if you’ve never seen the anime TV series, this movie is a great place to start. Tickets are available now at Cineplex.com

tigerbunnybookcoverFeeling lucky? The Beguiling is teaming with Eleven Arts to give away passes to see TIGER & BUNNY: THE RISING at either of its exclusive Toronto showings on Thursday, June 26, or Sunday, June 29, at Cineplex Odeon Theatres! Keep reading to enter.

Or if you’re feeling unlucky and want to buy a beautiful book, the first person who buys The Tiger & Bunny Artbook TIGER & BUNNY: MASAKAZU KATSURA ORIGINAL DRAWINGS from The Beguiling (shown to the right) will get two free passes with purchase, so there’s that…!

WIN ONE OF 3 DOUBLE PASSES TO SEE: TIGER & BUNNY: THE RISING

To enter to win one of three pairs of tickets to see TIGER & BUNNY: THE RISING on June 26 or 29, all you have to do is make sure you’re subscribed to The Beguiling mailing list (sign-up is in the upper-right corner of this site), and send an email with your name, phone number, and “MASAKAZU KATSURA” to beguilingcontests@gmail.com before Monday, June 23rd, at 11:00am. We’ll draw and e-mail the winners then.
