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!

Texeira Painting Commission List Opens

Mark Texeira has long been one of the best to bring fine art painting to the sequential art world, book covers, galleries and more. Now, it's just been announced, with the last of his painting commissions out the door, that Texeira has a limited amount of space on his schedule to take on a few more full painting commissions.

Now is the chance to get the character of your choice in a full oil, one of a kind, rendition. If you've seen Tex's recent Vampirella, Conan and Wolverine you know... So let your imagination run wild. Who would you choose?

We're sure no-one reading this will be stuck for inspiration if you've see any of Texeira's work on such US comic titles as Ghost Rider, Black Panther, Moon Knight or his creator-owned project Pscythe, as well as an upcoming Wolverine special!
