Retailer/blogger Chris Butcher dropped us a note saying that The Beguiling Books & Art is bringing original art to the San Diego Comic-Con by folks like Seth, Jason, Paul Pope, Kevin Huizenga, Jason Lutes and many, many others. You can find The Beguiling at booth #1529, which they’ll share with Drawn + Quarterly. Who, incidentally, will have folks like James Sturm, Lynda Barry, Rutu Modan and Adrian Tomine signing at their booth, so stop by, check out some art and meet a few creators.
The complete release from The Beguiling is after the jump. Drawn + Quarterly’s booth schedule can be found here.
Thanks to their friends at Drawn + Quarterly, The Beguiling Books & Art will be exhibiting at booth #1529 at this week’s Comic Con International: San Diego , in its role as a sales representative for original art. D+Q’s generous donation of exhibition space will allow The Beguiling to present original art from dozens of talented cartoonists including brand-new, never-before offered-for-sale originals from SETH (Wimbledon Green), JASON (I Killed Adolf Hitler), PAUL POPE (Batman Year 100), and FAREL DALRYMPLE (Omega The Unknown).
The Beguiling represents original art sales for more than 40 cartoonists at its online store at Beguiling.com, but this small exhibition at San Diego will allow an unprecedented opportunity for art collectors and fans of these artists to see the original works up close. In addition to brand new works from Seth, Jason, Pope, and Dalrymple, The Beguiling will have work on hand from Drawn + Quarterly cartoonists including Michel Rabagliati (Paul Goes Fishing), Miriam Katin (We Are On Our Own), Sammy Harkham (Crickets), Kevin Huizenga (Or Else, Curses), Jason Lutes (Berlin), Anders Nilsen (Big Questions), Maurice Vellekoop (Vellevision) and dozens of other talented cartoonists.
For fans and collectors who will be in San Diego for the con and would like to save themselves the shipping charges on a piece of original art or two, drop a line to email@example.com with the title and artist of one of the thousands of pages from our online art store at Beguiling.com and we’ll bring it to the show for you!
Remember, that’s The Beguiling at the Drawn + Quarterly booth, #1529, near Comic Relief, Fantagraphics, Last Gasp, and Artists Alley on the “right” side of the exhibition hall.
