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!

"I don’t want to tell you too much about it for fear of giving too much away about the opening story," says Paul, "but I do want to tell you that I will be uploading a page from the strip every Monday and Friday at http://thunderbrother-soapdivision.blogspot.com/.
"Each page is in full colour (yum!) and free to read (double yum!!)!"

online hit diary comic strip Book of Lists, a full colour book
collection of which is now available. His graphic
novel There's No Time Like The Present will be
published during 2012.
"Thunder Brother; Soap Division is an all-ages strip," says Paul, "so feel free to mention it to your children, younger brothers and sisters, parents, neighbours, anybody that you might bump into in the Post Office and that grumpy man who serves behind the counter in your local shop.
"Alternatively, tell your Twitter followers, website visitors and Facebook friends."
