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!

New British publisher Acrasia seeks comic creators

Acrasia Works, an independent British publishing house is looking for new talent.

The Canterbury-based company says it is committed to producing beautiful graphic novels and one-shot comic books for international sale.

They say they are currently accepting submissions from writers, artists, inkers, colourists, and letterers.

Acrasia are accepting portfolio links and samples from artists, both digital and traditional. They say they have an extremely high standard and  art must be at a professional level with exceptional personal style and ability.

You do not necessarily need to have had experience with sequential art, but if that is the case, you may be required to complete a few test pages from a script.

Email low res submissions to, or links to online portfolios. They do not accept artists’ submissions by post. (Which might prove hard, anyway, as the company does not list an address on their web site...)

For writers guidelines on submissions. click here.
