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!

New TOXIC On Sale Now, Complete With Bad Jokes!

TOXIC ComicThe latest issue of Egmont's TOXIC is in the shops now and comes with a free electronic handheld game that the publishers say is guaranteed to keep readers busy on boring car journeys or when they're stuck round your nan's!

They've also kindly sent us some jokes you can tell over the summer holidays, so as a bit of midweek relief, we thought we'd pas 'em on...

Q. What do you call a fish with no eyes?

A. Fsh!

Q. What do vampires have at eleven o'clock every day?

A. A coffin break!
