Woo-hoo! We’re thrilled to announce the 3rd Annual Dinosaur Comics & The Beguiling Holiday PARTY and Book Launch, featuring our good friend Ryan North! This year we’ll be celebrating the release of his new comic book series THE MIDAS FLESH (as well as his work on Adventure Time and Dinosaur Comics), and our cartooning friends Joey Comeau (A Softer World, Bravest Warriors) and Kate Beaton (Hark, A Vagrant!) will be on hand for fun and shenanigans! It’s the Wednesday night you’ve been waiting for all year!

Ryan, Kate, Joey, and Surprise Mystery Buddies will be getting together this year for some holiday cheer, there will be interviews and possible a game, and I hear they might sign some books too. Nothing better than signed books for special Holiday-time gifts! The Beguiling will be on hand with all sorts of stuff available for sale at the event, including comics, books, and more!

Oh, and we’re doing Secret Santa again this year, keep reading for details!

All of this is happening Wednesday, December 18th, at Pauper’s Pub (539 Bloor St. W., near Bathurst TTC), on the second floor. We hope we’ll see you there!



We’re holding a SECRET SANTA at this event! Everyone is welcome to participate, but no one has to if they don’t want to because choice is important!

If you would like to participate:
– Please bring a wrapped gift with a monetary value of no more than $5.
– Go to the book sales table and trade your gift for a numbered ticket.
– At 8:30pm, we’ll call out the numbers, and when your number is called you’ll have your choice of the available gifts!
– Please mark on the outside of the gift if your item contains food and especially if it contains common allergens including peanuts, gluten, etc., so that people with allergies will be able to make an informed Secret Santa Selection.
