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 for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Online Digital Comics Woes

Just read this rather worrying note about poor customer service from digital comic store Direct2Drive on the Kung Fu Rodeo blog.

Sounds to me like a lesson in how not to run your business in an age when comments on poor service are quickly circulated and a worrying mis use of personal information...

KungFu Rodeo has run a few reviews on downloadable comics and compared and contrasted Pullbox and Direct2Drive a couple of weeks ago, with Pullbox winning hands down. That site does look good, offering downlaodable comics in both PDF and CBR formats for reasonable prices. Site navigation is clean and easy to understand and there's a wide selection of US titles including publications by IDW - although no Star Trek - Devil's Dure, Hyperwerks and others.
