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?

Ellis, Grant in Dundee for Comics Day

Warren Ellis and Alan Grant are to headline Comics Day at this year's Dundee Literary Festival.

The pair will give a talk about their careers at the festival on 28 June, which will also include a session devoted to 2000AD, considered the most successful and influential British science fiction comic still in publication.

"Each year the Comics Day grows in profile," Dr Christopher Murray, the organiser of Comics Day, told The Scotsman, "and it is my intention to make it a staple event, underscoring Dundee's central position as the home of comic culture in the UK."

He added Comics Day gave the festival a dimension most literary celebrations lacked.
