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?

Exeter Expo Incoming

Hot on the heels of what sounds like an amazing SFX Weekender - which included appearances by Tom Baker, Dez Skinn and Paul Cornell and many other top talents - there's a smaller but nonetheless eagerly-anticiapted event next weekend: the Exeter Comic Expo.

Taking place on Saturday 13th February at Exeter's Southgate Mercure Hotel, the event - the brainchild of the folk behind the Bristol Comics Expo - has been organised in association with Ace Comics and includes appearances from artist David Lloyd, Mike Ploog, Lee Garbett, Dave Hine and "master of artistic mayhem" Shaky Kane.
