Press Release:

The 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. This year Ryan North, creator of Dinosaur Comics and writer of The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl will be joined by Chip Zdarsky, writer of the to-be-released-that-day Star Lord from Marvel Comics. We’re also lining up a few other very special guests, but we wanted to let you know to Save The Date first and we’ll update this post with info as it comes in!

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!

All of this is happening Thursday, December 17th, 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 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.

CA – Black Widow: Red Vengeance Signing

000000000000000_black-widow-red-vengeance2Margaret Stohl appears alongside Ryan North, Marguerite Bennett, Judy Stephens, and Shannon Hale at Kepler’s Books on Friday, October 14th at 7:00 PM to sign Black Widow: Red Vengeance! Get free tickets at the link…

Press Release:

Calling all fans of Black Widow, Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat, Squirrel Girl, A-Force, The Watcher, cosplay and all things Marvel: some of the best creators in the Marvel Universe are coming to Kepler’s and were throwing a party to celebrate.

You know her name: Natasha Romanova. You know her codename: Black Widow. You’ve seen her fight alongside Daredevil and Spider-Man in the comics and on the big screen as Scarlett Johansson firing off widows stings and fighting alongside (and sometimes against) Hawkeye, Captain America and the Winter Soldier. Margaret Stohl, the #1 New York Times best-selling co-author of the Beautiful Creatures series, brings back Natasha for her second solo adventure in Black Widow: Red Vengeance, the action-packed sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller Black Widow: Forever Red. This time, Stohl takes readers inside the minds of Marvel’s most cunning and dangerous spies Black Widow and Ava Orlova, the equally deadly Red Widow delving deeper into their powers revealing more than ever before about the infamous assassin and her fledgling hero-in-training. (Don’t call her a sidekick; she hates that.)

Bonus! Margaret is bringing some friends:

-Shannon Hale is the New York Times bestselling author of the Newbery Honor winner Princess Academy, multiple award-winning Book of a Thousand Days, Dangerous, the Books of Bayern series, and the first four Ever After High books. Her novel for adults, Austenland, was made into a movie starring Keri Russell. Shannon and her husband Dean Hale have collaborated on several projects such as Eisner-nominee Rapunzel’s Revenge and The Princess in Black series. Their much anticipated The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Meets World will be published Feb 2017. They are awesome.

-Ryan North is the creator of Dinosaur Comics, the co-editor of the Machine of Death series, and the author of To Be or Not To Be, the choose-your-own-path version of Hamlet! He has written the Adventure Time comic and writes The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl for Marvel. Also: awesome.

-Marguerite Bennett is the author of Marvel’s A-Force – an all female Avengers team and writes for Angela: Queen of Hel (a character originally created by Neil Gaiman). She writes things and wins all the points. Again: awesome.

-Judy Stephens is a Marvel producer, blogger, photographer, and cosplay expert. She wears things and photographs things and generally dresses much better than anyone else. Awesome – right?

This will be a celebration of all things Marvel. So come in costume (there WILL be prizes).

Press Release:

It’s happening again! #ZDARSCON is the official comic book event of Chip Zdarsky, but this time he’s bringing some special pals to the event! You have no idea what to expect, even if you went last time, because this is nothing like last time or anytime for that matter.

Details will be announced in the #ZDARSCON tag on Twitter on Saturday morning (Follow @zdarsky @thebeguiling & #zdarscon on Twitter for deets), and on the Facebook event page.

#ZDARSCON Facts:

  • #ZDARSCON is an experience. But, sadly, it will be an experience which lasts for roughly 5-10 minutes per person. Do not travel to Toronto JUST for #ZDARSCON. Just trust Chip on this one.
  • #ZDARSCON will be located within 5-10 minutes walking of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, where we presume nothing related is going on this weekend. Maybe the gift show? Anyway.
  • #ZDARSCON will announce the MYSTERY LOCATION the morning of! And the signing schedule the night before!
  • #ZDARSCON will have a selection of books and products from all participating creators available for purchase at the event itself, on the off chance you didn’t get up Saturday morning and lug a box of books downtown.
  • #ZDARSCON will be a very nice time.
