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?

Comics @ Glasgow Film Festival

It is a sign of the times in Mark Millar's career that he has moved from talking to a professional librarian audience in 2008 to the Edinburgh International Book Festival audience in 2009 while in 2010 he will be talking to a film festival audience.

Friday 26 February will see Mark Millar talking at the Glasgow Film Theatre as part of the Great Scots strand of the Glasgow Film Festival on the subject of his comic books and graphic novels being turned into films by Hollywood. These include Wanted and Kick-Ass as well as those in development such as Wanted 2, American Jesus and War Heroes.

Mark Millar's talk begins at 4pm and is scheduled to run for 1.5 hours. Tickets are priced at £7 and are available from the Glasgow Film Festival website.
