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?

Frank Quitely Interview Podcast

As part of the West Port Book Festival on Friday 25 June 2010, David Bishop interviewed artist Frank Quitely at Edinburgh Books second hand bookshop in Edinburgh's West Port. Since the event was always going to have a small audience due to the size of the venue, the interview was recorded and has now been made available as a podcast on the Festival's website.

The talk lasts just over 50 minutes during which time the two men discuss the artist's work both for UK comics, including his work for 2000AD when Bishop was Tharg, and for the American comics that he is now better known for.

In addition to the podcast the website links through to photos of the event taken by Chris Scott, one of which we have borrowed, which show that Edinburgh Books looks very much like the public's perception of what a traditional second-hand bookshop should look like with Bishop and Quitely surrounded by bookcases stuffed full of large, old books.

For those who could not make the West Port event, both Frank Quitely and David Bishop will be appearing again in Edinburgh at the Oxfam Comic Event on Saturday 17 July 2010.

The podcast is available on the West Port Book Festival website.

The photos of the event are on Chris Scott 's
Flickr account.
