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 www.downthetubes.net for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

A chance to win a signed book by Neil Gaiman, courtesy of the Open Rights Group
Britain's Open Rights Group - the UK’s leading voice defending freedom of expression, privacy, innovation, consumer rights and creativity on the internet - marks its fifth birthday today, and is offering anyone who joins by donating or than £5 between now and 10th December a book by the organistion's patron, Neil Gaiman - and the chance to win a signed copy by the author.
By joining ORG now, you'll receive a free copy of graphic novel Tales from the Public Domain: Bound By Law? and could win a unique signed book from Neil Gaiman, who recently sent a video message in support of the organisation (above).
Founded in 2005 by 1,000 digital activists, the Open Rights Group campaigns to change public policy whenever citizens' or consumers' rights are threatened, by talking to policy-makers and mobilising supporters to stop bad laws in the UK and EU.
The group is funded by donors and depends on regular contributions to run and win their campaigns.
