Legendary X-Men writer Chris Claremont appears at Dr. Comics on Sunday September 29, 2013 from 12:00pm until 6:00pm. Come get your favourite X-Men, Wolverine, and Excalibur comic book titles signed at the store and have your picture taken with the X-Men of Toronto group.

Chris Claremont writes both comics and prose. His initial unbroken 17-year run on Marvel Comics’ Uncanny X-Men is the stuff of industry legend. The story arc “Dark Phoenix,” with its radical treatment of the story’s central character, paved the way for the reinterpretation of superhero mythos throughout the comics industry. His work is lauded for its anti-prejudice themes, and groundbreaking inclusion of minorities as heroes. With artist Frank Miller he created the Wolverine graphic novel that serves as the foundation for the forthcoming movie “The Wolverine” starring Hugh Jackman. His X-Men story arc “Days of Future Past” is the source material for the X-Men movie of the same title coming July 2014. Although best known for his work on Marvel Comic’s X-Men series, more on the way.

Gene Yang appears at Little Island Comics Saturday, September 21st, 2013 from 3:00pm-4:30pm for his new graphic novels Boxers and Saints!

Press Release:

The Beguiling is proud to welcome respected author Gene Yang (American Born Chinese, Eternal Smile) to Toronto for the debut of his new pair of graphic novels, Boxers and Saints. Boxers & Saints is an innovative new graphic novel in two volumes – the parallel stories of two young people caught up on opposite sides of a violent rift, the Boxer Rebellion of 1898. American Born Chinese author Gene Luen Yang brings his clear-eyed storytelling and trademark magical realism to the complexities of the Boxer Rebellion and lays bare the foundations of extremism, rebellion, and faith.

Gene Yang will visit The Beguiling for an afternoon moderated Q&A session with store manager Christopher Butcher, which will be followed by an in-store signing. This is a rare visit to Toronto for Yang, a highly-regarded New York Times bestselling author, so we hope you can make it out!

ON – Double Book Launch

Layout 2 (Page 1)

Françoise Mouly and Sean Rogers appear for an on-stage interview moderated by Jeet Heer at Revival on Friday, September 13, 2013 at 7:30 pm.

Press Release:

Do you feel the comics you read just aren’t smart enough? Tired of people in tights and zombie apocalypses? Do we have the books for you! On Friday, September 13, Coach House Books and The Beguiling invite you to one of the most most rarefied of comics events to hit Toronto.

This fall, Coach House Books launches two new books: In Love with Art and The Cage. Jeet Heer’s book In Love with Art: Françoise Mouly’s Adventures in Comics with Art Spiegelman looks at the woman who’s gone (until now) unappreciated as an architect of the modern comics revolution. Françoise Mouly, co-editor of RAW, art director of The New Yorker and wife of Art Spiegelman has been quietly changing comics art since the 1980s, and Heer’s new book looks at her triumphs and long relationship with the creator ofMaus and In the Shadow of No Towers. The Cage by the late Martin Vaughn-James is a reprint of a lost cult classic of Canadian graphic novels. First published in 1975, the enigmatic comic returns to print after decades, with a new introduction (and appreciation) bySeth.

On September 13, author Jeet Heer will conduct an on-stage conversation with comic book force of nature Françoise Mouly about her decades-long relationship with Art Spiegelman, their work with RAW and Mouly’s overhaul of The New Yorker and creation of TOON Books. Heer will also speak with comics’ writer Sean Rogers (The Walrus, Globe and Mail) about the legacy of The Cage. And this will all be followed by a discussion of the changing face of comics as a more intellectual undertaking. Signings by Heer and Mouly will follow the on-stage discussion.
