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?

Bizarre Omen Bodes Well for Strip Magazine?

It's a funny old world.

This week, Print Media Productions launched their new comic magazine Strip, featuring reprints of the classic 1970s comic story Hookjaw, which features a shark with a hook stuck in its jaw as the main character.

Today The Sun, amongst others, reports that Chris Handley, an angler in Florida, beat odds of billions to one catching a shark by hooking a hook already stuck in its mouth!

The good news? The shark was released and is back in the water.

As Harry Hill might say, 'What are the chances of that happening, eh?'

Check out the full story here.
