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?

Dead Universe's Late Launch today

Mystery Boys #1
Today sees the official launch of Dead Universe Comics in Aylesbury.

Regular readers may recall we mentioned the opening of the shop last year. You may have already seen Aylesbury Dead, Little Terrors and Apes 'n' Capes, plus the Japan Comic Aid books already, but the shop never had a launch as such.

With that in mind they are celebrating today with creator signings, a raffle, tombola, costume parade thousands of comics to give away, thousands of comics all at £1 each, Yu-gi-oh, Magic the Gathering and Pokemon trading card game demos, Roleplaying and board games too -plus preview of the upcoming kids comics and adult anthology titles.

"There might possibly a giant Dead Universe Comics Cake to share amongst us," they say.

The store has a back stock of over 50,000 comics, mainly US, but with a sprinkle of UK comics from the 70's and 80's including annuals. As with othe comic shops, new import comics arrive every week.

- Dead Universe Celebration from 9.00 am today , Friars Square Shopping Centre, Friars Square, HP20 2QF Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
