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!

Happy Birthday, 2000AD! From art droid Alwyn Talbot

Alwyn Talbot sent this brilliant Nemesis the Warlock art to mark 2000AD's 35th birthday.

Currently working as a comic artist and illustrator, Alwyn received his apprenticeship in underground comics. His credits include DC Comics, 2000AD,  Acclaim and Rebellion.

He's exhibited in Slovenia and Manchester and frequently contributes to the 'Doodlebug' event at 'The Corner House' in Manchester City Centre.

He's worked in the games industry as an concept artist, character designer, storyboarder and animator for over ten years and never gets bored of it.
