FEB 7: ISSUES MAGAZINE TORONTO LAUNCH!

You are invited to join us at Toronto’s Beguiling to celebrate the fourth issue of Issues Magazine, an international biannual-ish riso-publication dedicated to modern day issues.

Enjoy homemade cookies while listening to readings of texts by Coco Guzman and Re’e E Hagai; followed by a discussion regarding matters of domesticity between Issues’ creator Tal Sofia and Issues’ contributors: Adrienne Matheuszik and Kristi Poole; with special guest commentator Nassim J. Abu Sarari.

We’ll be closing the event with a special acoustic performance by The Blue Lights, promised to be fuzzy wuzzy dark and swirly spaced hypnotic boy and girly!
(Bandcamp: thebluelightsto.bandcamp.com/)

When: Thursday 7 February, 7pm
Where: The Beguiling,
319 College Street, Toronto
This event is free and all are welcome.

FEB 6: DAREDEVIL #1 SIGNING WITH WRITER CHIP ZDARSKY!

Daredevil #1 comes out February 6th! It’s being written by a certain wonderful man named CHIP ZDARSKY. How wonderful is Chip? Well, he decided ‘why not go to the Beguiling Books & Art (located at 319 College St) and sign copies of Daredevil #1 the day it comes out?’ So that’s exactly what he’s going to do! Yes, Chip Zdarsky of SEX CRIMINALS, INVADERS, SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN and many, many more amazing comics will be here, signing for you! Chip will be signing copies of Daredevil in-store from 5:30-8PM on Wednesday, February 6th! (He’ll also sign other things for you as well, provided you bought something for him to sign in-store). We’re excited! You’re excited! It’s a win-win scenario! See you then!

MARCH 10: JAIME HERNANDEZ “IS THIS HOW YOU SEE ME?” LAUNCH AT THE BEGUILING!

On Sunday, March 10 at 4PM we’re beyond thrilled to welcome comics legend JAIME HERNANDEZ to our new store to celebrate the release of IS THIS HOW YOU SEE ME? from Fantagraphics!
 
Starting at 4 Jaime will be in conversation with Jane van Koerverden from CBC. After the discussion there’ll be a chance to ask questions and then get your books signed!!!
 
Jaime is the co-creator with his brothers Gilbert & Mario of the legendary LOVE & ROCKETS, one of the titles that has defined the purpose and voice of our shop since the earliest days, so it obviously means a lot to us to welcome Jaime to The Beguiling’s new location!
If for some reason you have never read any of Jaime’s groundbreaking work you still have time to come to the shop and get started and see for yourself what the big deal is! Or: maybe you have, but you’ve fallen behind lately? Well, now you have time to discover that the stories collected in THE LOVE BUNGLERS (also available in Angels & Magpies) and IS THIS HOW YOU SEE ME? Represent not only some of the best comics of recent years, but also some of the finest of Hernandez’s career!
 
Don’t miss this rare chance to meet one of the greatest living cartoonists! We’ll see you there!
