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 www.downthetubes.net for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Romance in Infinity: latest issue highlights Ilya's classic strip
The latest issue of INFINITY, the free digital comics magazine from our sponsor Panel Nine, is out now. iPad and PDF versions available, although the PDF version has less functionality than the news stand app.
This third issue includes the classic Ilya-crafted strip Cherish, plus his behind the scenes notes on its creation, and a cracking sampler of the weekly kids comic The Phoenix, which Panel Nine adapt for digital devices.
Monsterology and 2000AD artist PJ Holden writes on getting the best from the iPad drawing app Procreate; plus there's reviews by PM Buchan of various digital comic releases; and reviews by others of the print editions of titles of Nao of Brown and My Friend Dahmer.
Along with all the important digital comics news, opinions on digital comics and more (including David Lloyd's scathing comments on 'motion comics'), it's a great read, and not just for digital comic fans.
