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!

Wilson Talks Dredd

Artist Colin Wilson looks set for a busy year, with a new, still secret, Star Wars project in the works, along with his new Judge Dredd strip, his first Dredd work for nearly ten years.

We previously reported on writer Al Ewing's enthusiasm at writing Magic Bullets for the new Judge Dredd Magazine, on sale now in all good newsagents. "I must say I've had a ball drawing Old Stoney Face after all this time," Colin Wilson says of the 20-page story (a further 30-page story will follow later in the year).

Colin's also pleased by Rebellion's release of Judge Dredd: The Colin Wilson Collection which features 50 plus pages of Dredd stories he drew for both 2000AD and The Megazine in the late 1990's.

"A funny though just occurred to me..," the New Zealand-born artist, whose credits also include Lt. Blueberry, Thunderhawk and Battler Britton (see dtb interview), muses on his blog. "if I get the chance to draw something for 2000AD next year, I will have had work published there for each of the last four decades. Scary..."
