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?

LCD Publishing launches Pony World

Pony World
Pony World, a new six-weekly title from Exeter-based LCD Publishing (also publishers of Action GTX), goes on sale 13th April, priced £2.75.
“Most young girls love ponies, but for many of them, the dream of owning one themselves is not a realistic ambition," said a spokesperson for the magazine's distributor, Comag.

"For all others, learning about them, is as close they will ever get."

Aimed at 4-7-year old girls who are mad about ponies, every issue of Pony World will be a 32-page magazine packed full of pony stories and adventures, great horse puzzles, magical pony posters, colour-me-ins, quizzes and lots of other pony activities and fun.

(No info on comic strip, but good to see another girls title launching hot on the heels of the launch of Egmont's Monster High).

The publishers say Pony World will appeal to both those young girls who may be horse riders or are just simply fascinated by the world of ponies and want to learn more about them.
Every issue of Pony World will carry free gifts, with issue No.1 bagged with no less than 23 great goodies, including lipgloss, body gems, rings and tattoo.

The launch issue will also feature a competition to win a My Little Pony Ponyville playset.
