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?

Comic Creator Spotlight: Nick Miller's "Political Logic"

political_logic_cameron.jpg


Lancaster-based cartoonist and downthetubes chum Nick Miller - co-creator of the long-running The Really Heavy Greatcoat, which most recently featured in the much-missd Comics International, came up with this strip in response to the current national political dilemma in the UK facing the Conservative leader, David Cameron.

Nick has illustrated everything from childrens' comics to graphic novels, advertising, childrens' book and greetings cards, and his work has appeared in the UK, US and Italy. Most recently, he's been working with partner Antonella Caputo, whose work first appeared in the Italian publication Il Giornalino, where she produced monthly episodes of Casa Montesi, a family drama. Since then she has written scripts for childrens' comics and magazines, a recipe column and short stories and plays for children, as well as graphic novelisations of works by H G Wells, Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe and Oscar Wilde. Her work has been published in Italy, the UK, US and Mexico.
