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?

John de Lancie at UK's first My Little Pony convention

Star Trek: The Next Generation's John de Lancie is the Guest of Honour at Britain's first ever 'Brony' convention in August, taking place in Manchester, celebrating all things My Little Pony.

While My Little Pony may not seem our usual purview, the franchise has an incredible following and, of course, its own British magazine titles, so we're happy to give this event a plug. The team behind it are enthusiastic and determined to make the show a great event set to take place on the 18th - 19th of August 2012 in Manchester.

Known in My Little Pony fandom for voicing the lord of chaos Discord, John de Lancie is also known in the wider community for his role as Q in Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as appearances in many other shows, such as Stargate SG1, Torchwood, Breaking Bad, and Johnny Quest. John will be answering questions, signing autographs, and filming his Brony documentary at the con.
