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?

Bart Simpson tops UK readers poll

Bart_Simpson.pngIn a recent poll to mark the twentieth anniversary of The Simpsons, Bart Simpson has been named the nation’s favourite Simpsons character by the official Simpsons Comics, published in the UK by Titan Magazines and the company's top-selling title.

Simpson’s patriarch Homer came in second place and Lisa was third.

“Picking up nearly half of all the votes cast, Bart was a clear winner," noted Simpsons Comics Brand Manager, Jo Browne, "demonstrating the on-going popularity of Springfield’s anarchic first son with UK Simpsons fans."

The top ten characters, as voted for by Simpsons Comics readers, were:

1 - Bart Simpson

2 - Homer Simpson

3 - Lisa

4 - Maggie

5 - Krusty the Clown

6 - Marge

7 - Mr Burns

8 - Ned Flanders

9 - Moe

10 - Santa’s Little Helper
