through-the-woods--1000pxThe Beguiling & Simon & Schuster Canada will welcome Emily Carroll to Toronto on Tuesday, July 15th, to celebrate the release of her new comics collection Through The Woods.

In this special event, Emily Carroll will present from Through The Woods to the assembled audience. A spirited interview with journalist and writer Sam Maggs (The Mary Sue, The National Post) will follow. The event will take place at The Lillian H. Smith Library, home of The Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation and Fantasy, in their large auditorium. Through The Woods will be released for sale on Tuesday, July 15th, and be available for purchase at the event.

ABOUT THROUGH THE WOODS & EMILY CARROLL

Discover a terrifying world in the woods in this collection of five hauntingly beautiful graphic stories that includes the online webcomic sensation “His Face All Red,” in print for the first time.

Journey through the woods in this sinister, compellingly spooky collection that features four brand-new stories and one phenomenally popular tale in print for the first time. These are fairy tales gone seriously wrong, where you can travel to “Our Neighbor’s House”—though coming back might be a problem. Or find yourself a young bride in a house that holds a terrible secret in “A Lady’s Hands Are Cold.” You might try to figure out what is haunting “My Friend Janna,” or discover that your brother’s fiancée may not be what she seems in “The Nesting Place.” And of course you must revisit the horror of “His Face All Red,” the breakout webcomic hit that has been gorgeously translated to the printed page.

Already revered for her work online, award-winning comic creator Emily Carroll’s stunning visual style and impeccable pacing is on grand display in this entrancing anthology, her print debut.

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!
