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?

60 Years of Eagle Celebrated



Eagle Society member Phil Daniels has posted the first part of his video report on the 60th Anniversary of the Eagle in Southport on youtube. (The whole video will be split into at least three parts).

"The Eagle was the best of all Boys magazines ever, first published on 14th April 1950," Phil enthuses. "I remember well getting my first copy and reading it for 10 years!

"This celrebration was held in Southport, the town in Lancashire, UK, where it began its life."
