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 www.downthetubes.net for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!
STRIP Magazine Issue One is available in British comics shops from today. The digital edition for iPad is also available and can be downloaded from the iTunes Store. The cost of either edition is £2.99. (of course, the digital edition doesn't come with the fab giant Mirabilis poster).
And in case you'd forgotten - STRIP Magazine
is an adventure anthology comic featuring some great art and stories
from some brilliant creators including PJ Holden (Judge Dredd), John
McCrea (Hitman, The Boys), Michael Penick (Insurrection), John Ridgway
and many more.
Offering a range of strip stories,
comics news, interviews and features, plus a fully re-mastered version
of the classic British comic strip Hookjaw, this is a first issue you
will not want to miss!
