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?

Time Bomb heads for the West with latest release marking five years in business

The next release from Time Bomb Comics will be officially launching at this weekend's Leeds Thoughtbubble Convention - along with at least 45 other new comics from other publishers and the first British Comic Awards.

Written by Alex De-Gruchy with art from Gorgio Iannotti & Mike Bunt, the publication of the 56-page graphic novel The Last Ride Of Henry Holden marks five years of publishing history for the Birmingham-based comics publisher.

Since 2007, Time Bomb Comics has regularly been publishing an eclectic range of one-shots and graphic novels from both brand new and established comic creators. The Last Ride Of Henry Holden - which will also be available through Diamond’s Previews catalogue - is a grim tale of Old West redemption set in the year 1871, written by Alex De-Gruchy with artwork by Giorgio Iannotti and Mike Bunt, colouring by Owen Watts and lettering by Nikki Foxrobot.

It will be on sale at Thoughtbubble at a special launch price of £6.00, along with Time Bomb’s full range of titles, which include Dick Turpin and the Crimson Plague, London Calling by Stepen Walsh and Keith Page, and Kronos City.
