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?

Photographer Steve Cook announces "Sophie's World" exhibition, seeks missing negatives
Brilliant photographer Steve Cook, whose design credits include Doctor Who Magazine and 2000AD as well as projects such as Alternity with Shaky Kane and whose 2009 Secret Origins exhibition of many British comic creators remains a superb snapshot of the industry, has just announced he will be exhibiting a series of previously unseen photographs of the Doctor's much-loved sidekick Ace, Sophie Aldred, at the Orbital Comics Gallery in London from 5th - 30th September 2013. Sophie will be making an appearance and signing too.
I commissioned Steve for several photo shoots while I was editing Doctor Who Magazine, and he went on to snap several photo sessions with Sophie and other Who stars – but, sadly, one set of negatives remains missing.
