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?

Dan Dare in the spotlight of new Judge Dredd Megazine

As well as some great comic strip, the latest issue of Judge Dredd Megazine, on sale tomorrow (Wednesday 17th August) features two mammoth features by downthetubes occasional contributor Matthew Badham on the history of Dan Dare and the new Doctor Who in Comics exhibition at London' Cartoon Museum.

Strip-wise, the issue includes Judge Dredd by Alan Grant and Jon Davis-Hunt, Samizdat Squad by Arthur Wyatt and Paul Marshall, Numbercruncher by Si Spurrier and PJ Holden and Cursed Earth Koburn by Gordon Rennie and Carlos Ezquerra.

And if all that - including a potted history of Doctor Who - wasn't enough for you, how about an interview with Brian Azzarello (by Joel Meadows), film reviews and a bagged reprint: volume two of Mercy Heights by John Tomlinson, with art from Lee Sullivan, Trevor Hairsine and Neil Googe?

Go, you know you're tempted. Get down to your local newsagents and grab a copy!
