How did comic-book store The Beguiling survive a boom-and-bust market?Peter Birkemoe doesn’t just sell comic books for a living, he is also a cartoon character in his own right.
Bespectacled and slyly sardonic, Birkemoe made a cameo appearance in the 2005 graphic novel Wimbledon Green, a gentle farce about the mania of funny book collectors crafted by Guelph, Ont.-based cartoonist Seth. Birkemoe fit in well with Wimbledon Green because he’s a long-time denizen of comic book subculture, someone well-versed in the arcane lore of trading yellowing back issues lovingly sealed in Mylar bags.

Great profile of one of our fave stores.

Soooo jealous of my brother in Toronto right now. He’s watching as many Studio Ghibli films as he can, thanks to the TIFF’s Spirited Away festival. LUCKEEEEE.

Jenny Hart’s embroidery artwork stolen in Toronto.
Spread the word:
"Two of my most recent works (St. John the Baptist andLou Reed as Christ) were stolen from The Drake Hotel in Toronto following the close of the exhibition Wrap Your Head Around This. Attempts to retrieve the works have been fruitless, so I am now posting about it. Please share this blog post to spread awareness that if these works surface, they were stolen. The return of these works will be welcomed with no questions asked."

Artscape president and CEO Tim Jones spends his days finding and creating spaces around the city for artists. His big idea for Toronto would be to give artists the tools – under one roof – to develop the business side of their work. Founded in 1986, Artscape grew out of the Toronto Arts Council’s recognition that it needed to defend artists’ live-work space. Since then, the not-for-profit has been working against the forces of gentrification to maintain affordable studio space.

I will be in Toronto at TCAF this weekend!
@ the Toronto Reference Library
I will be at TABLE 155 selling my wares.
such wares will include prints and comics and GREAT SHOWDOWNS COASTERS (coasters… very limited supply) more info HERE
so come over!  it’s FREE!

We need to start something as sweet as TCAF here in Vancouver. I know there are a couple comics events here, but they’re nothing like TCAF and other such events in other cities. Hey, someone in Vancouver other than me: step up!
