UNDERGROUND CLASSICS: The Transformation of Comics into Comix
Book Launch and Discussion with author James Danky
Sunday, June 28th, 2009, 3pm-5pm
@ The Central, 603 Markham Street (next to The Beguiling)

The Beguiling is proud to present James Danky, editor of the new book “Underground Classics: The Transformation of Comics into Comix”. BoingBoing says that Underground classics is “The first [book] to really focus on the artwork of underground comics,” and it really is a gorgeous book, loaded with beautiful art reproductions and essays from historians including Paul Buhle, Trina Robins, Jay Lynch, and Patrick Rosenkranz amongst others.

Danky will be giving an audio/visual presentation on the art and history of underground comix. A moderated discussion between Danky, The Beguiling’s Peter Birkemoe will follow, including a special Underground Comix Trivia Contest and a chance to win a copy of the book! A book signing will follow.

Hope to see you there!


NOTE TO PRESS: Mr. Danky is available for advance media. Please contact Peter Birkemoe at or 416-533-9168 for more information.
