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?

Amnesia Agents Issue 1 Available From Jason Cobley

"Have you ever wondered what happens to the things - or the people - you forget? 
There is a place where these things end up, a place just beyond what we can normally see and hear... or remember. There are dark forces at work at the edge of remembering. 
This is where The Amnesia Agents come in..."

The first issue of writer Jason Cobley's new A4, 52 page, small press anthology title Amnesia Agents is now available.

"It's been great fun putting this together, my first foray back into small press for some years, "says Jason. "One of the things I wanted to ensure was that this could still be an all-ages comic. I've never been a big fan of gore and swearing for the sake of it in comics, so although this features our friend Hugo the zombie and some scary themes, it doesn't get that 'for mature readers only' tag. I'd like to say a public thank you to all those talented people who contributed artwork and/or scripts to this project at relatively short notice."

Indeed the line-up of creators in the first issue reads like a who's-who of British small press -
Opening page by Jason Cobley & Andy Bloor
The Selkie Wedding by Jason Cobley & Chris Askham (letters by Jim Campbell)
Funny Humpty Dumpty by Dave Bulmer
Never Sleep Again by Gary Crutchley
Runaway by Vicky Stonebridge
Breakfast by Jason Cobley
Leo by Andy Winter & Barry Renshaw
The Screaming Lighthouse by Jason Cobley & Fred O’Rourke
Pub by Jason Cobley & Grant Perkins (pencils) and Mike Bunt (inks & letters)
Bits by Jason Cobley
Closing pages by Jason Cobley & Barry Renshaw

The issue also includes comic strip previews of two of Jason's forthcoming books -
The Signal-Man adapted by Jason Cobley & artwork by David Hitchcock
The Legend of Tom Hickathrift by Jason Cobley & Paul Harrison-Davies

There are more details of Amnesia Agents, and the rest of Jason Cobley's work, on his Writing Coblers blog.
