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 fan Rodrigo Diaz Ricci


Robo Hunter cover for 2000AD by Ian Gibson Name: Rodrigo Diaz Ricci

Blog or web site:

Currently working on:

At the time of writing this I'm on holiday - my first in three years! I've just finished my third Ligeia adventure, Moonchild, and I'm working on the new series Which will also be published on my website.

I'm also writing and drawing a series in Spanish for a Chilean Strip Magazine calling Sintoma, with my own story called Matrioska. (It's a a mix between Tom Clancy and David Cronemberg!)

First memory of 2000AD?

I started to read Judge Dredd in the early 1990s and I love the character.

Favourite Character or Story?

I've read a huge number of 2000AD stories, but their high quality makes me think it's unfair speak of only one. But since I have to choose, I think: Cry of the Werewolf, Robo-Hunter, Future Shocks and others. Too many of the latter to pick out just one!

What do you like most about the 2000AD?

Well - 2000AD is a Magazine that has given work to a lot of new professionals. It has a Rock spirit and maintains the spirit of comics for young people, but in an intelligent way. It's a fetish of popular culture from 20th century and now the 21st.

What would you most like to see in 2000AD as it heads to its Forties?

I want to read an story with Iron Maiden-like characters. Rock and comics always will be a cool mix!
