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 www.downthetubes.net for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Kieron Gillen discusses gameplay and fantasy comics

Concluding Panel Borders' month of radio shows looking at the crossover between comics and games, Alex Fitch talks to writer Kieron Gillen about how his history as a video and computer game journalist has influenced his comic writing career.

Alex and Kieron talk about the latter’s experience writing for Warhammer Monthly, developing an online game The Curfew for Channel Four and how game playing has only had a small impact on his writing Thor and Uncanny X-Men.


The ever-busy Kieron has his name to a number of US projects right now, including Generation Hope, Journey into Mystery and Uncanny X-Men, which comes to an end in October with Issue 544 and the return of Mr. Sinister.

• Panel Borders: Kieron Gillen – Gameplay and fantasy comics airs at 5.00pm, Thursday 28th July 2011, Resonance 104.4 FM (London) / streamed at www.resonancefm.com / podcast after broadcast at www.panelborders.wordpress.com
