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?

" Jock, Andy Belanger, Becky Cloonan, Trevor McCarthy, Conor McCreery, Anthony Del Col, Scott Snyder... We’ll also have all the hottest titles including Batman: Gates of Gotham, Batman: The Black Mirror, Demo and the wonderfully off-the-wall Kill Shakespeare graphic novels.
