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?

Unmasking Corruption with Comics in Liverpool


Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption comes to Liverpool this month, with an exhibition of political comic work to coincide with the release of their new comic book anthology.

The free exhibition, at the Contemporary Urban Centre in Greenland Street, will take a retrospective look at how comics have been employed throughout history to debate and highlight political issues, and will include content from previously unseen archives as well as highlights from the limited edition Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption Comic.

The book itself, which aims to engage and challenge the issues of social injustice in a bid to politicize a new generation of activists through the medium of popular comic culture, features original work from leading comic artists, satirists and creative figures from around the world including Dave McKean, Peter Kuper, Lee O'Connor, Pat Mills, V V Brown, Dan Goldman, Aleksandar Zograf, Bryan Talbot, Asia Alfasi, Dylan Horrocks and Marcus Bleasdale.

The Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption Comic Book is available while stocks last.
