We just wanted to write a quick note thanking Tom Spurgeon at ComicsReporter.com for recommending The Beguiling twice in his Holiday Gift Guide. In his post "171 Reasons To Spend Your Shopping Money On Comics This Year," Spurgeon lists a number of excellent comics, art, and services related to the comics industry to make holiday gift-giving a breeze. It's a great shopping guide all-around, and we're particularly pleased to see just how many of his comic and graphic novel selections are in stock and for sale in the store right now... by my count, we've got 9 of the first 10 books he mentions (I don't think we've got the Blondie one...).
On the big list, The Beguiling Original Art Store clocks in at #32, with Spurge recommending it as "...a staggering line-up of cartoonists with work available here, from big-title alt-comics pages to more rarely seen work...". We show up again at entry #152, this time for The Beguiling Bookstore, and particularly for our ability to track down rare and hard-to-find items.
It's always nice to be recognized for the hard work we put in trying to make the store great. As always, if there's anything you're looking for this holiday season, be it original art, graphic novels, prints or whatever, just let us know and we'll be happy to help you out.
