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!

Happy Birthday, 2000AD! From artist and colourist Martin Baines
Along with artist Martin Baines' birthday wishes for 2000AD, we're also delighted to publish his vrsion of the original Judge Dredd script, 'Court Room'.
Martin tells us this was the script for what was originally to have been the first ever 2000AD Judge Dredd story, but it was considered too violent.
"I think it would be interesting for readers and would really help me," he says. Let us know what you think...
