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 www.downthetubes.net for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Kayla Hillier and Oliver East on Panel Borders
Panel Borders: ...for travel's sake
In the last in a month of episodes of Panel Borders looking at depictions of travel in comic books and graphic novels, Alex Fitch talks to a pair of cartoonists whose small press and collected comics are all about travelling for the sake for it.
Oliver East discusses his Trains are... Mint trilogy of graphic novels, published by Blank Slate Books, which chronicle his walking along train lines from Manchester to Liverpool and across Germany, as well as his latest project Swear Down.
Also, Alex talks to Kayla Marie Hillier about her web / self published comic Galavantwhich depicted her travels from Toronto to Manchester and back again, via South London, in the Winter of 2009 / 2010 and is available in a collected edition from the author.
