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 for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Final Johnny Red collection from Titan Books out next month

The final collection of Joe Colquhoun’s work on the seminal aerial combat story Johnny Red, which featured in Battle Picture Weekly, is out next month.

Entitled Angels Over Stalingrad, this third volume in the series includes a feature on the Battle of Stalingrad by Garth Ennis (The Boys, Preacher, War Stories).

Sadly, at present it seems this is the last Titan collection for now from the series, but Egmont are publishing digital editions of the comics, with two volumes already on sale - so let's hope that artist John Cooper, who took over the strip from Joe Colquhoun when Joe moved over to Charley's War, gets his day in the limelight, which he so richly deserves.

These collections are a fantastic tribute to both writer Tom Tully and artist Joe Colquhoun, neither of whom are still with us.

Angels over Stalingrad is on sale on 25th  January 2013 ISBN: 9781848564381
