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?

Furman Talks Revenge!

There's still a month to go in the UK before Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opens in cinemas here (19th June), but the first part of US publisher IDW's comic adaptation, written by Transformers supremo Simon Furman, is on sale now in all good comic shops.

"This was my first stab at turning a movie script into a comic book, so I’m eager to hear what people think," Simon notes on his official blog. "It was actually more of a challenge than I thought it would be, as so much has to be condensed, refined, shuffled or realigned to make it work as a cohesive, coherent panel-to-panel comic book.

"All the key plot points need to be front and centre and some stuff, inevitably, has to be almost sidelined or skipped over...But it was fun too. And I was pleased with the end product, especially as artist Jon Davis-Hunt made it all look so damn good!"
