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!

Paul Cornell Signing in London

Captain Britain and Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell will be signing copies of the Captain Britain and MI13 - Secret Invasion graphic novel, the first collection of the Marvel Comics series, at Forbidden Planet later this week (Thursday 15th January).

Join Paul at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 15th January from 6 – 7.00pm.

In this collection, the Skrull Invasion of Secret Invasion isn't restricted to the US - when the Skrulls hit Blighty, only Captain Britain and MI:13 stand in their way!

With the fate of Britain hanging in the balance, can the heroes find out what the Skrulls are after before it's too late? Featuring Prime Minister Gordon Brown in action!

• By the way, in a weird twist on the world it seems Captain Britain, like President Obama and other major world figures, is now officially on Twitter, posting daily: If you've been holding out from being part of this social communication revolution, what better reason to leap aboard? (Hmm, nope, still not convinced...)
