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?

Tripwire back in Diamond Distributors Previews catalogue

(with thanks to Joel Meadows): After a gap of two years, ace comic and media magazine Tripwire will be available to order from Diamond US in Previews. If you go to page 351 of Previews May 2011, you can order TRIPWIRE#55, item code MAY111336. For £6.95 UK/ $9.99 US, you can get 124 pages in full colour.

Featuring an exclusive painted cover by illustrator David Michael Beck, this issue celebrates Michael Moorcock's Elric anniversary by talking to Moorcock himself, looking back at the past of the character in comics and what Boom! has planned for it. The magazine also profiles movie location scouting company Sarah Eastel plus London fantasy author Christopher (Bryant & May) Fowler talks about his career.

It's 50 years since Fantastic Four #1 so Tripwire is commemorating this with a look back at Marvel's first family with the help of some of the creators who've been part of FF history.

Then there's STRIPWIRE, featuring 22 pages of comics from artists such as Roger Langridge and Kev Mullins, a profile of classic artist LB Cole, the return of old favourites like the Power List and the Graphic Novel roundup and a look at the success of Paizo's Pathfinder RPG.
