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?

WebFinds: Chris Weston, Movie Star

Today's WebFind: ace British artist Chris Weston has re-plugged some 'motion comics' created to promote last year's Book of Eli film directed by the Hughes brothers and starring Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman.

It looks like two comics were published, with Chris, who drew the tale, making a cameo in the second, "The End", below...

So why didn't we we see him on the Oscars red carpet at the weekend?

A lone hero must fight his way across the wasteland of post-apocalyptic America to protect a sacred book that holds the key to saving the future of humanity. This motion comic was drawn by "the annoyingly talented Tommy Lee Edwards", Chris tells us.

Released to mix reviews and pitted against films such as Avatar, Box Office Mojo notes The Book of Eli gross $94,835,059 in the United States and Canada, and $62,256,659 in other markets, with an estimated worldwide total of $157,091,718.
