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!

Wired Issue 1 Available From Emancipation Studios

Wired, the first title from new small press publisher Emancipation Studios is now available from their website. Based in West Lothian near Edinburgh, Emancipation is the brainchild of writer James Lundy who describes himself as a "lifelong fanboy".

Wired is described as a noir sci-fi/horror story set in a world where things are usually what they appear to be as two detectives, Briggs and Smith, investigate a case that leads them to a West Lothian industrial estate. Written by James Lundy, the 28 page US sized comic features a colour cover by B Ibenk and Apri-K with black and white internal artwork by penciller C Sepulveda and inks by B Ibenk.

There are more details about Wired on the Emancipation Studios website and their Facebook page.

Writer James Lundy will have copies of Wired Issue 1 at the
Graphic Novel Night at Meadowbank Library in Polmont near Falkirk on Saturday 21 April 2012. There are more details of the event on the library website.
