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?

UK Web And Mini Comics Thing 2010 - This Saturday

With the mighty juggernaut that is Hi-Ex's pre-publicity machine careering down those twisty Highland roads, it would be easy to miss the altogether quieter affair that is also on this Saturday coming.

The UK Web And Mini Comics Thing 2010 will be taking place on Saturday 27 March 2010 at the Great Hall in London's Queen Mary University at Mile End. The event is open from 10am to 5pm and entrance on the day will cost £4.

Thing 2010 will feature an 82 table small press comic mart as well as a series of panel discussions that range from the growth of blogs, twits and mobile comix development, via the cross-over between comics and animation, to science fiction in web and mini-comics, this final panel being lead by Space Babe 113's John Maybury.

Also in attendance will be such notable small press and online creators as Marc Ellerby, Roger Langridge and downthetubes' favourite, Francesca Cassavetti of Fabtoons.

More details of the UK Web And Mini Comics Thing 2010 including directions to the venue can be found at the Thing website.
