star-lord_1_coverThe Beguiling is proud to once again welcome one and all to our annual Dinosaur Comics Holiday Party! Things might be tough right now, but that makes getting together with friends, comics, and some secret Santa-ing even more important. This year Ryan North, creator of Dinosaur Comics and writer of The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl will be joined by a bunch of pals with brand new books, out today!

  • Chip Zdarsky will be there, and today is the day of release for his new comic book Star-Lord #1 from Marvel Comics!
  • Jason Loo will be there, and he’ll have a brand new issue of Toronto’s own superhero The Pitiful Human-Lizard!
  • Scott Hepburn will be there, and he’s the artist of the Power Man & Iron Fist: Sweet Christmas Annual #1, brand new today!
  • AND ALL THE WAY FROM ENGLAND, Mr. Jamie McKelvie will be in attendance, and he’s the co-creator of The Wicked and The Divine.

If you’ve never been before, Ryan, Chip, and pals will be getting together and signing/mingling with folks, we’ll ask them some fun questions in front of an audience, and there’ll be books there for you to buy and get signed too (courtesy of The Beguiling). Plus, returning for another year is the popular SECRET SANTA trade at the event! Read on for details!


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 about $5-$10. Don’t go nuts, but find something cool.
  • 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.

Thanks to Ryan, Chip, and Pauper’s for helping us throw this again this year!
