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!

More Manga in Barrow

Kate Holden from IndieManga has been in touch to let us know she's running another Manga workshop in Barrow.

"Bookings won't be open for a week or two yet, but it's still free of charge and will be at Barrow Library (upstairs) on February 18th (during half term hols)," she says.

"I moved the age limit up, because there were a few twenty year olds wanting to come last time!"

The last workshop covered the basics of character design, scripting, panelling and pencilling your own doujinshi (that’s Japanese for a self-publication).

To see if booking has started, call 01229 894370 or email:
