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?

Horrible Stuff coming from Eddie Campbell!

the Lovely Horrible Stuff by Eddie Campbell

Top Shelf and Knockabout are to co-publish Eddie Campbell's new book The Lovely Horrible Stuff!, a delightful autobiographical voyage into the financial wilderness, ranging from the imaginary wealth of Ponzi schemes to the all-too-tangible stone currency of the Micronesian island of Yap.

This is no dry and dusty treatise on finance; any complexities are pleasingly reduced to the level of bubblegum trading cards. In here you will hear about the corporation that Campbell keeps under his bed; you will meet colorful historical characters and be taken on dangerous shark-infested sea adventures; and after that, we will all plunge to the depths to retrieve our loose change

Campbell's wry eye and vivid full-colour artwork imbue the proceedings with real humanity, making The Lovely Horrible Stuff an investment that's worth every penny.

The 96-page hardcover edition is being offered in the current Diamond Previews catalogue (order code MAR12-1193), along with re-offers of the autobiographical epic Alec: The Years Have Pants and the colourfully quiet comedy about the creative life, The Playwright.

Take the chance to fill out your Eddie Campbell library!
