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?

2000AD's Thought Bubble portfolio session: a quick reminder

2000AD is heading north to Leeds for the annual Thought Bubble comic book convention, taking place at the Saviles Hall conference venue at Clarence Dock in Leeds. That's right next to the Royal Armouries museum, on 19th and 20th November, this year’s event taking place over two days for the first time.

The editorial team will be there with a cornucopia of comics class and tables piled high with the greatest and the latest titles from more than three decades of Thrill-power, along with a constellation of top comics talent signing and sketching at our dedicated signing table.

Lined up are Boo Cook (Elephantmen), Simon Davis (Ampney Crucis), Peter Doherty (Devlin Waugh, Shaolin Cowboy), Al Ewing (Zombo, Judge Dredd), Jock (Detective Comics, The Losers), Colin MacNeil (Judge Dredd, Chopper), Rob Williams (The Iron Age, Cla$$war) and Andy Diggle (Daredevil).

For the first time the comic is also holding 2000AD portfolio sessions, but with a Dragon’s Den-style twist! Want to be the next great artist to draw Judge Dredd? Then, as we've mentioned here before, take this opportunity to have your art seen by one of the world’s best know publishers by entering the 2000AD portfolio challenge!

Budding artists should view the free sample script on this page: draw their own version of it, and bring their efforts to the portfolio sessions being held at the 2000AD table on the Saturday.

The six best efforts chosen by Tharg himself will then go before the searing eyes of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic at a special 2000AD panel on Sunday at 3.00pm – artistic judges will include Colin MacNeil, Boo Cook, Peter Doherty and more.
