downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Hop over to www.downthetubes.net for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

US Newspaper polls readers on cartoon choice

Can't see the the UK Guardian ever doing this: or getting as much feedback -- some 5000 readers replied - on a newspaper's plans to alter its comic strip section.

Links section revamp

There might not seem to be much going on at downthetubes -- but you'd be wrong. It's all "under the bonnet" stuff though -- tidying up images folders, a revised links section which hopefully makes more sense to visitors.

The image flder changes were brought on by increasing "bandwidth theft" problems that I hope I've solved with a few technical tweaks to stop direct links to images on my site. I don't like doing this -- but it was starting to cost me money.

On the writing front, there's a cartoon project that looks as though it may finally see a wider audience after three years of writing it, with Nick Miller on the art chores. Fingers crossed...
