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!

Tube Surfing: Three-panel Comics, Interviews, Reviews, Birthday Greetings and Fan Art!

(Above: a piece of fan art for Garen Ewing's Rainbow Orchid by Sarah McIntyre.)

Tube surf time again...

The Forbidden Planet International blog has really gone to town with their reviews of the DC Comics '52' re-boot (re-launch?) Here's a round-up of all their reviews for the first week of that 'event' (several of the titles are by Brit creators).

Ed Kaye interviews Rob Williams and D'Israeli for 2000 AD Online about the new series of Lowlife. Plus he also has a chat with Kek-W about his new series, Angel Zero. Ed seems to be that site's resident interviewer now and, I have to say, he's doing good work.

Warren Ellis is hosting three-panel comic strips at his blog. Good to see him supporting other comic creators (as ever).

• I hope I get a birthday card from and drawn by Jim Medway when I hit 40.

Sarah McIntyre does great event reports!

And finally, I do like the readers' art page at Garen Ewing's website.
