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?

Another New Comics Reid-er

Our congratulations from all here at downthetubes go out to artist Graeme Neil Reid and his wife Catriona on the arrival of their new baby girl, Lucy Anne, born on Thursday 8 April and weighing in at 8lbs 1oz. After two potential Commando readers, the Reid family now has a potential Manga reader.

With dad a football fan, our Roy Of The Rovers cover couldn't be more appropriate and this was one result that definitely went into extra time as she kept everyone waiting by being a nerve racking 10 days overdue. However we are pleased to report that mother and daughter are both healthy and happy and now home which means that her dad might actually get to see the second episode of Doctor Who on Saturday night.

From the four babies we have reported on in the last couple of years, Zoe, Arianna, Sasha and now Lucy, it rather looks like Manga is set to take over the world.
