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!

Taisbeanadh Comaig Eadar-Naiseanta Na Gaidhealtachd 2012

Aren't you glad that they let us call it Hi-Ex?

A reminder that the Highlands International Comics Expo will be taking place at Eden Court on the banks of the River Ness in Inverness itself on Saturday 31 March and Sunday 1 April. Doors open from 11am to 5pm each day.

Guests include artists Cam Kennedy, Nigel Dobbyn, Tanya Roberts, Gary Erskine and Chie Kutsuwada, writers Maura McHugh, Al Ewing, Jim Alexander, Ferg Handley and Michael Carroll, plus downthetubes' own John Freeman in his not-so-secret identity of editor of STRIP Magazine.

All the details of Hi-Ex 2012, including a full guest list and details of how to get advance tickets, are on the Hi-Ex website and their Facebook page
