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?

Comic Empire annexes London ABC Show
Fans of British comics will be delighted to learn that an event catering to their particular needs is returning to London on a regular basis.
Such has been public demand following its successful restaging of the dormant ABC Show last December that Showmasters has decided to incorporate the marketplace into its long-established London Comic Marts on a quarterly basis.
Now renamed Comic Empire and expanded to encompass not only British comics from the 19th century to the present day but also such other UK-produced material as pulps, magazines, paperbacks and ephemera, the 2013 shows will be held from noon to 4.00pm on the following Sundays: 3rd March; 2nd June; 6th October.
All the events will take place at the Royal National Hotel, Bedford Way, London WC1H 0DG.
Dealers’ tables are £50 in advance (£60 on the day if available) and booking is advisable.
Please call 01908 671138 and specify Comics Empire. All enquiries and requests for further information to Mike Conroy on 01322 335332; Skype: mike_conroy48 or via email: demigodATbtconnect.com
