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!

2000AD Covers Uncovered

comic_2000ad_Miller_cover.jpgBeing a huge 2000AD fan and collector of its artwork, Pete Wells gets a thrill from seeing covers and artwork for the comic in their original state. Back in early July, he announced he'd decided to write a blog where he can upload as many logoless covers as he can get his hands on so fans can see the artists' original visions without all other gubbins - the masthead, barcode box, cover lines etc. - cluttering up the page.

One month on, there's some fabulous stuff on the site, including this unused Judge Dredd cover by Frank Milller and the story behind it, too.

Pete's also uploaded work in progress and uncoloured stuff too. Check the blog out at:
