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!

Latest Production from Time Bomb Comics

Congratulations from all here at downthetubes go out to Steve and Suzanne Tanner of Time Bomb comics on the arrival of their very own little bomblette.

Sasha Joyce Tanner was born in the early hours of 31st January and weighed in at 6.8lbs. New dad Steve reports, "She is fit and healthy, her mother is tired and happy, her father is overawed and gobsmacked. "

Suzanne had been showing off her baby bump at the Thought Bubble comics convention last November so with baby Sasha at least used to the noises of a comics convention we are wondering when she will be putting in her first public appearance at one. Could she be the youngest attendee at Hi-Ex in less than two months time?
