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?

Hi-Ex 2011: Fourth Fling In The Highlands

After the run of Scottish comics events that we have been reporting on over the last few days, it seems appropriate to mention the biggest Scottish comics event of them all, the Highland Expo - Hi-Ex.

In 2007 when Richmond Clements and Vicky Stonebridge started planning their Highland Comics Exposition they can hardly have envisaged that they would still be at it four years later. That first Hi-Ex comics convention took place in Inverness' Eden Court theatre in February 2008 and Hi-Ex 4 will return there once again in 2011.

Hi-Ex has always supported the same charity over its three years, Children 1st, and this year the convention presented them with a cheque for £2331.35 raised by the charity auction, raffles, signings and various other activities over that busy weekend in March. This total more than doubled the amount that the convention had raised for the charity in its previous two years.

The dates for Hi-Ex 4 are 26-27 March 2011 and when it will be held in the Eden Court Centre on the banks of the Ness River in the centre of Inverness.

More details will be available on the Hi-Ex website closer to the time.

The downthetubes reviews of the three Hi-Ex conventions to date are here - 2008, 2009 and 2010.
