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?

Reviving The Driver



YouTube fan 'thegreyman' has put a strip from the 1980s version of Toxic! (not to be confused with Egmont's TOXIC of today) and put it to music.

Written and drawn by Jeremy Banx and David Leach the greyman says he originally wanted to put the comic to the song 'Hell Trucker' by Gama Bomb "but it turned out to be far too long for just the one tune".

The music used is instead is Meanstreak - "Road Kill"; Gama Bomb - "Hell Trucker"; and Thanatos - "Speed Kills".

Banx is currently a cartoonist for the Financial Times and working on an animated mini-series The Many Deaths of Norman Spittal, while David Leach now works in the comics department of Titan Magazines alongside Steve White, Ned Hartley and others.
