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!

AntiFolk Goes Zine Friendly

In order to try and get more zines, comics and self published material out to a wider audience, Britain's Alternative Press team are teaming up with like-minded events organisers to ensure they have a table for the sale of zines and comics etc., making it "Zine Friendly".

One of the first of these alliances takes place next weekend with the AntiFolk UK Autumn Festival (Friday 20th – Saturday 21st November) in London's Soho, an evening of music from the Anti-Folk UK collective. A zine friendly event, Alternative Press will have a table or two to sell zines and comix. Also, self publishers who come to sell will receive a discount of £2 off daily ticket price (so, £4 rather than £6).

Plus, who could miss comic creato Jimi Gherkin playing some sounds, along with the Tuscan Troubadour, Trent Miller and The Skeleton Jive?

The AntiFolk event is at the 12 Bar Club, Denmark Street, Soho, London WC2H 8NL
