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!

The Best of the Season to all our Readers!
Unlike the talented comic artists whose work we promote here, I can't draw for toffee, so I hope you don't mind this adaptation of a piece of art by the great pulp magazine artist Virgil Finlay.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year - although we'll probably be posting more stories between now and the start of 2012!
With the launch of The Phoenix in January, 2000AD's 35th Birthday in
February and the continuing strength of the UK indie press, it's not all
doom and gloom out there, no matter what the mainstream media would
have us believe.
Our thanks to everyone who sent us stories - publishers, individual creators and others - and the very best of luck in your comic endeavours next year.
