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?

Hi-Ex 2012 Dates Announced

Where are you going to be on Saturday 31 March and Sunday 1 April 2012? The chances are that many of you will be in Inverness - whether you know it yet or not.

Hi-Ex organisers Vicky Stonebridge and Rich Clements have announced that, after a year off, the Highlands International Comics Expo will return in 2012 with the fourth Hi-Ex taking place over the April Fool's weekend at its regular venue of the Eden Court complex on the banks of the River Ness in Inverness.

With Scotland still to experience the first Glasgow Comic Con in June, the third Oxfam Comics Day in Edinburgh (probably in late summer) and the fifth Dundee Comics Day at the end of October, Hi-Ex may seem a very long way off but with the second Cardiff comics expo announced for February, 2012 is already shaping up nicely for comics conventions.

Considering the Saturday night at Hi-Ex now traditionally involves taking over an all-you-can-eat Chinese restaurant in the early evening followed by an all out assault on the convention bar until the wee small hours in an attempt to drink it dry, Sunday morning 1st April may prove to be an interesting experience.

There are more details of the Hi-Ex convention on the Hi-Ex website and blog.
