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 for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Check out The Chili! New Markosia title on sale soon

On sale at the London SuperCon next weekend is The Chili, a new trade paperback from UK indie publisher Markosia, featuring the talents of ace British creator Nigel Dobbyn as colourist.

Created by Christian Rodríguez, like many comic book fans, young Mike Alvarez dreams of one day drawing his favourite heroes and working with legends like Stan “The Man” Lee. Those dreams change rapidly when Mike accidentally illustrates the blank pages of a magical compendium, thus transforming him into the mighty Chili!

Join Mike, his sidekick Skip and the most bizarre villains you’ve ever encountered, as our unlikely hero fights for all of humanity against the diabolical Taco Bravo! 

This mix of comedy and action will dare you to ask:  Do you believe in comics?
