At the end of every year Torontoist releases their list of Heroes and Villains. Being somewhat new to the game I didn’t know they did this, so I got really excited at the idea. As a Hero I wrote about The Beguiling, a world famous comic store in Toronto that celebrated its 25th anniversary this year. Their store is unique in that it features independent graphic art from around the world, and local artists looking for a place to break through. They sell superhero comics, but that has never been their focus. Many of their titles are about everyday people who don’t wear masks or shoot laser beams from their palms. For doing so much to support the independent graphic arts scene, they are a Hero for 2012. Read all about it on Torontoist.
