ON – Amazing Spider-Man #800 Signing

Press Release:

The Beguiling is thrilled to announce a spectacular, sensational, frankly amazing signing as we welcome powerhouse comics couple STUART & KATHRYN IMMONEN to the store on Wednesday, May 30 starting at 5:00 PM! Their first public appearance/signing in three years is to celebrate the release of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 from Marvel Comics!

Stuart & Kathryn’s credits almost don’t need to be listed—besides THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, Stuart has been the artist on such books as STAR WARS, NEXTWAVE, EMPRESS, and FEAR ITSELF; Kathryn has been the writer on such great titles as RUNAWAYS, SIF: JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY, AGENT CARTER and PATSY WALKER: HELLCAT. If that weren’t enough, together the Immonens have also created the books RUSSIAN OLIVE TO RED KING, MOVING PICTURES and NEVER AS BAD AS YOU THINK. Their work crosses genres and styles and demonstrates that regardless of the format, they are masterful creators in any form of comics.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 is not only a milestone comics event but also marks the end of Stuart’s run on the title, so it’s the perfect occasion to welcome the Immonens at our new location. For this event The Beguiling will also be donating $5 from the sale of each copy of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 to the Immonens’ chosen charity, Trails Youth Initiative! Now THAT is Amazing!

This comic has a cover price of $9.99 US, or roughly $13 CDN, but pre-ordered copies will be sold at $10 CDN. On the day-of, copies of the regular ASM #800 cover will be priced at CAD$12.

Due to the fact that the current run of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN has been selling out on day of release, and the sheer number of special variant covers for this issue, we will be taking pre-orders to help make sure you get the covers you want. While we will be taking pre-orders right up to the event, if you are looking for one of the variant covers please visit our website/see below for details on how to order.
Additional issues of Amazing Spider-Man will be available the day of release, but cannot be pre-ordered.

Stuart and Kathryn will both be on hand to sign copies of their work, with in-store purchase. Head sketches will be available with the day-of purchase of TPB and HC books as well as on sketch covers of Amazing Spider-Man #800. Please note: Stuart will not be doing convention or commission-level sketches, NO EXCEPTIONS.

BC – Hollywood Babble On LIVE

Ralph Garman & Kevin Smith appear at the Commodore Ballroom on Friday, May 11, 2018 at 7:30 PM for a live recording of their podcast HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON!

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.

ON – Love That Bunch Signing

Aline Kominsky-Crumb appears in conversation with writer and comedian Monica Heisey on Wednesday, April 25th at 7:00 PM.

This event is a FREE EVENT co-presentation between Drawn & Quarterly and the Church of St. Stephen-In-The-Fields. Book sales are provided by TYPE.

Pioneering feminist cartoonist Aline Kominsky-Crumb presents Love That Bunch, autobiographical comics that chronicle the raw, dirty, and unfiltered thoughts of a woman coming of age in the 1960s. Kominsky-Crumb’s darkest secrets and deepest insecurities were all the more fodder for groundbreaking stories that crackle with the self-deprecating humor and honesty of a cartoonist confident in the story she wants to tell.

MORE ABOUT LOVE THAT BUNCH:
Love That Bunch traces Aline Kominsky-Crumb’s life as a Beatles loving fangirl, an East Village groupie, an adult grappling with her childhood, an 80s housewife and mother, all the way up to a new 30-page story, “Dream House”, that looks back on her childhood. It is shockingly prescient while still being an authentic story of its era. Kominsky-Crumb was ahead of her time in juxtaposing the contradictory nature of female sexuality with a proud, complicated feminism. These comics thrum with anxiety and questions about femininity, identity, and family.

ABOUT ALINE KOMINSKY-CRUMB:
Aline Kominsky-Crumb was born on Long Island and is one of the most influential cartoonists of the underground era as the cartoonist behind Dirty Laundry Comics and Arcade; a contributor to Wimmen’s Commix; cofounder of Twisted Sisters; editor of the anthology Weirdo and author of the graphic memoir Need More Love. Since the 1990s, she has lived in the south of France with her husband Robert Crumb. In 2017, the David Zwirner Gallery in New York held a joint exhibition of their artwork: Aline Kominsky-Crumb & R. Crumb: Drawn Together.

ABOUT MONICA HEISEY:
Monica Heisey is a writer and comedian from Toronto. She writes for television shows like Baroness von Sketch Show and Schitt’s Creek and publishes weird little humour pieces in The New Yorker, the Globe and Mail, the Guardian, and elsewhere. Her first book, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Better, is in stores now.
