JULY 26: THE BEGUILING IS CLOSING EARLY!

Fridays! We’re usually open late for all your weekend comic-browsing needs! Well, on Friday, July 26th we gotta close up a little early!
We’ll be amending our regular store hours on the 26th, from 11am till 7pm, and then closing up for a private function that evening. We’ll be open regular hours every other day, and back to our normal 11-9 opening hours the next week!

JULY 27: COMIC SHOP LADIES NIGHT AT THE BEGUILING!

Come join us for some summer fun at The Beguiling! Bring your friends for a warm-but-chill evening of comics, coloring, door prizes, snacks, drinks, and a room full of your comics-loving peers.

Time: Saturday, July 27, 2019, 7pm – 10pm
Location: The Beguiling Books & Art
319 College St., Toronto, Ontario, Canada, M5T1S2
(On College Between Spadina & Augusta)
Cost: FREE!

Comic Shop Ladies Night is back with another summer event! This is a ladies only event* where you can embrace your geeky side, discover new comics, share your opinions on movies, TV shows and video games, and cozy in from the cold with some comics! So put on your favorite Geek Tie attire (whether it’s a floofy dress or your favorite jeans) and come spend the evening with other nerdy ladies in a casual environment, surrounded by comics and merch.

For our July event, we will be returning to The Beguiling and every hour we’ll also be giving away amazing door prizes, but you have to be there to win, so be there is what we’re saying! We’ve got comics, games, a nerdy photo booth, and of course our popular table for the best colouring book action in town, so bring your pencils and imagination.

We’re trying something a little different with our Muskoka beer sponsorship this time — instead of an in-store tasting, we’ll be doing giveaways!

Don’t forget to invite your friends and RSVP to get yourself on the guest list and to get your name entered for the door prizes.

*This event is inclusive to all women, including those that identify as cisgender, transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary. Thank you to our wonderful community for supporting our intentions to build this event as a safe(r) space! We couldn’t do it without you. ♥

Accessibility: This location is accessible, but we regret that the washrooms are not.

NEW IN THE ART STORE: AARON COSTAIN & ZACH WORTON!

It’s a literal A-to-Z of comics art new in our web store!

Aaron Costain‘s debut graphic novel ENTROPY came out from Secret Acres earlier this year & now we have a selection of original art from it for you to take home, put in a frame and look at lovingly!

Zach Worton recently released both THE WEIRD WORLD OF LAGOOLA GARDNER and THE CURSE OF CHARLEY BUTTERS and we have a selection of art from both of them and it is BEAUTIFUL!

Head over now to our art store and seize your chance to get some great art!

 

NEW IN THE ART STORE: TOMMI PARRISH & SHINTARO KAGO!

We’ve added a bunch of new original art to our art store from two amazing & very disparate artists!

First, we have a selection of pages from three of Tommi Parrish’s newest releases, allowing the incredible range of their work to be on full display! This includes many pages from  from their debut book for Fantagraphics, The Lie and How We Told It!

Next, we have  a selection of affordably-priced works by renowned ero guro artist Shintaro Kago! Kago’s gorgeously realized horror artwork is not for the faint of heart but his surprisingly lighthearted (and off-kilter) sense of humour shines throughout this selection of pieces.

Head over to our art store to check out both of these artists and take some of their work home!
