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!

Adventures in Comics Challenge
After the huge success of Adventures in Comics 2011 organised by Marine Studios in Margate, the gallery will launch Adventures in Comics 2 on 3rd February 2012.
The gallery hopes to bring comic lovers an amazing exhibition
and a host of events, discussions and comics related goings on.
To kick things off they are again inviting comic creators to respond to their two-page-comic-challenge.
The task is simple: create a two-page-comic under this year’s theme: ‘LIFE BOAT’.
All ideas are welcome to inspire, amuse, terrify and entertain. There
are no limits other than sticking to the 2 page rule (200 x 280 mm each
page, in either portrait or landscape), and of course, don’t forget the ‘Life Boat‘.
This year’s entries will be judged by comic expert Paul Gravett and the gallery say their will be a prize or two for the top entries.
"We’ll be keeping you updated with news of talks, workshops and events
that will take place over February 2012," say Kam and Rick, "and previewing Life Boat
entries so keep glued to the AIC2 blog."
• Send your entries as electronic files (jpeg, pdf, tif or eps format) with the subject ‘LIFE BOAT’ to: KamAThkd.uk.com or RickAThkd.uk.com. Deadline for entries: 20th January 2012
