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 www.downthetubes.net for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Bubo Bobblehead!



Sometimes an item of fantasy or sci-fi memorabilia just catches your eye and makes you think 'I want one of those!' This rather adorable character is Bubo, mechanical owl and Perseus' guide from the 1981 version of the movie Clash of the Titans. It even has its own Greek-style column base! Get it from 30 April.

This new Clash of the Titans was filmed partly in Tenerife - where I've just been. Perseus doesn't battle beer swilling Brits but trogs the national part aroun Mount Tiede. I'm still of the opinion that Ray Harryhausen's classic cannot be beaten, but will probably catch this new film just to see the location work!
