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?

London Film and Comic Con 2012

Crowds gathered at Olympia, London from 6-8th July for another hugely successful London Film and Comic Con. High-profile TV and movie guests included Bernard Cribbins, Freema Agyeman and John Simms from Doctor Who, Gillian Anderson from The X-Files, Gates McFadden and Jeri Ryan from Star Trek and film stars Charles Dance and Karl Urban.

Talent from the world of comics included Lee Townsend and Mike Ploog. The latter was interviewed by Mike Conroy, providing an interesting and informative overview of the artist's career.

Cosplayers aplenty were in attendance with the likes of Darth Vader, Admiral Ackbar and numerous Stormtroopers walking around providing entertianment for attendees. The Batmobile was also in attendance.

Olypmia was a great venue, if a little trickeir to get to than Earl's Court, the LFCC's traditional home, and overall this was a fun and entertaining event as always.
