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?

"It's... Jokes" is latest Signature Publishing title for kids

Signature Publishing, whose titles include Dinosaur King and Dinomite, are to release It's... Jokes magazine later this month.

The new magazine is the fourth in their successful “It’s…” series, aimed at 5 to 10 year olds and, say the publishers, will feature "tonnes of side-splitting gags, crazy puzzles and sneaky pranks.

"Every issue comes with a mega-mischievous joke pack, containing five free tricks; a whoopee cushion, fake spilled glue, pretend nail through the finger, a creepy cockroach, snappy chewing gum plus a free packet of Haribo sweets."

There's no indication from their press information on whether the title will include strip material, but you'd at least expect some cartoons with a name like that.

Signature Publishing’s portfolio includes Dinomite, Turbo Xtreme, Easy Peazy, Fantastic Funworld.

It’s… Jokes Issue 1 goes on sale 22nd February 2011 for 8 weeks and priced at £3.99
