The Beguiling is not just a comic shop up in Toronto — they’re also an original art dealer for many top art-comix and indy cartoonists. And they’ll be selling some of that artwork in San Diego this week.
Our buddy Chris Butcher, who shared what he’s been reading with us this past Sunday, sent word that The Beguiling will be selling art in Drawn + Quarterly’s booth, #1629, during the show. Some of the artists who will be represented include Seth, Paul Pope, Jeff Lemire, Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon, Becky Cloonan, Anders Nilsen, Jason Lutes and many more.
