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!

Manga @ Glasgow Film Festival

The Glasgow Film Festival has a considerable comics strand this year due to the presence of Mark Millar as a GFF Ambassador. The details of workshops, talks and screenings were originally mentioned on downthetubes here.

One of the events listed in the printed brochure that had to be cancelled was a talk between comics expert and author of Manga: 60 Years of Japanese Comics, Paul Gravett, and Amruta Patil. This has now been replaced in the schedule by "Global Manga: The Worldwide Impact of Japanese Comics" with Paul talking to Japanese artist Chie Kutsuwada and Scottish manga writer Sean Michael Wilson. This takes place on Thursday 24 February in CCA4 beginning at 1300. The talk will be followed by book signings by the participants.

There are more details of this event and how to buy tickets for it at the Glasgow Film Festival website.
