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 www.downthetubes.net for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Can Yuo Tell Who It is, Yet?
This is a fun little app: jigsawplanet lets you upload an image -- in this case, a spread from a 1970s Doctor Who strip from Countdown -- and turn it into a virtual jigsaw. You're then timed as you try to complete it. Who needs Brain Trainer? The system is java-powered and very easy to use, although pieces can get hidden under the main construct as you get closer to completion... but at least they won't get lost!
