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?

Countdown To Hi-Ex

The first British comics convention of the year, Hi-Ex, will be taking place at the Eden Court in Inverness over Valentine's weekend, 14 and 15 February. Guests this year will include 2000AD artists Mick McMahon and Colin MacNeil, Dan Dare artists Gary Erskine and John Haward, plus writers Alan Grant and Ferg Handley.

Last year's inaugural Hi-Ex had to contend with some of the worst snow of last winter. While it posed few problems in Inverness itself, it made travelling over the Scottish mountains to the capital of the Highlands interesting. No doubt Rich Clements and Vicky Stonebridge will be hoping for a slightly better weather forecast this time. As a preview for the convention, Rich has been talking to the BBC.

More details of the convention and its guests are on the Hi-Ex website.
The downthetubes reviews of Hi-Ex 2008 are here and here.
