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!

GI Handley: Rise of the Writer
With GI Joe: Rise Of The Cobra in cinemas and the first issue of Panini's British GI Joe in the newsagents (see news story), Jeremy Briggs talks to the comic’s writer Ferg Handley about his work on this new licensed title and discovers how to write a comic strip sequel to a film that you have not seen and are not even allowed to see the script of.
While Ferg is best known as one of the main writers for DC Thomson’s Commando the interview also covers the rest of his varied career from the fantasy of Games Workshop to the humour of The Dandy via the football pitch and the comix underground.
