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?

Hop over to for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Tube Surfing: Web-comics special!

Righty-ho, what's happening (in web-comics terms) out there...

Talented cartoonist Tom Humberstone took a break from his Hundred Days project (hundred cartoons in hundred days). He's back now, so go check out his stuff, which is rather cool...

Have you seen My Cardboard Life? It's kind of... defies description, really. Go look...

Adam Cadwell only has five more strips to go before he finishes The Everyday, his web-strip about, well, stuff that he notices in his everyday life. If you haven't caught it yet, it's worth a gander.

Are you reading Phil Spence's Ninja Bunny? Well worth your time... as is Marc Ellerby's diary comic, Ellerbisms.

Oh, and according to John Allison, the 't-shirt as vital part of the web-comic money-making ecosysytem' bubble has burst. You can console him by reading his excellent Bad Machinary and then help him by buying his stuff.
