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!

Small Press Idol Launched

US Comics fans have launched Small Press Idol via Facebook, an event not tied to the USA if you're interested in getting involved. "It's International, this is an internet event," says organiser Ian Shires, "not tied to a physical location."

You can view the projects of Small Press Idol as they roll in via www.dimestoreproductions.com and, if you're a creator, you have until the event's end to get a project in.

If you're a simply fan of indy comics, check back on the site as often as you care to, to read the new pitches as they come in, get voted on by the judges, and turned out for your comments as well!

Contestants are currently chasing $440 cash (grows with each new contestant) and a four-issue publishing deal!

Small Press Iidol is accepting new projects till the deadline of March 20th - it is not too late to get in.
