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!

Poopsheet Wants Your Comics!

The Poopsheet Foundation, a US-based organisation whose primary focus is mini-comics and their history, from their underground/new wave "birth" in the 1970s to the current scene of today, is actively seeking comics collections both for use in their web site's History Archive and for the Poopsheet Shop (the part of the site that ultimately allows the rest to exist).

Wanted are mini-comics, underground comix, alternative comics, fanzines, APAs and mainstream comics. "Generally speaking, we're looking for material published in the 1980s or earlier," says founder Rick Bradford, "but there are always exceptions.

"We pay in cash or trade."

If you're a fan of fanzines or worked on them either now or in the past it's worth checking out the Foundation web site.

Drop Poopsheet a line and let them know what you've got
