How to Contact Us

This Page was last updated on Monday 15th August 2022 – please note the updated email address

Initially, please drop us a line via this email address: (Replace the AT with @ when composing your mail). This enables us to forward items to the right people on the DTT team.

This is the only email you should use to contact us in the first instance, unless you have been in contact with us before. 

We do not accept “content link” features from any industry, so don’t even bother asking.

Please do not Twitter DM, Facebook Message DTT or Tumblr message contributors about items sent (It’s simply become impossible to keep track of so many different contact platforms and we might very well miss this “follow up”, no matter how polite).

Please also note, everyone working on downthetubes is a volunteer with a day job. We try to read every item received as soon as possible, but as the overall editor, I can tell you I get something like 300+ emails a day on average. Yep – much of that is work related, some of it is spam and such like, but I hope this give you an idea of what we’re facing at this end of the tubes. Thanks for your patience.

(New contributors – particularly opinion formers, interviewers and reviewers – are very welcome)


As a UK-based creative consultant I have had over 30 years experience of editing and writing, for both traditional and electronic media. My clients include publishers, web sites, mobile games content suppliers and others.

I am always interested in seeing artist and writer samples and am happy to do my best to try and promote British independent and mainstream comic publications.

If you are a published creator — that includes self published — and would like to be included on this site please send information about your blog or web site to me via this email address: (Replace the AT with @ when composing your mail)

If you want, PLEASE SEND ME NO MORE THAN TWO samples of your strip work (cartoon or adventure strip) or include a link to your website or blog in the e-mail. I will e-mail you if I require more images. Please also send me contact details and information on whether you work using Illustrator, Photoshop and other computer programs; or if you work traditionally with pen and ink. Please also let me know which languages you speak and your usual rates of pay per page or illustration, thank you.

Please note that due to the volume of material received I may not be able to respond immediately to material sent. I cannot guarantee that I will be able to provide a critique of submitted material if you are looking for one.

  1. I need to know where in the U.S. can I find a copy of the new Jack Kirby Quarterly magazine. I found a copy of the magazine a few years ago at Comic-Con International years ago. Also, I am an independent comic book publisher, who was inspired by Jack Kirby, and befriended him for five years, form 1989 to 1994 until he passed away. I have a very, very interesting story to share and contribute to the magazine about what Jack Kirby secretly shared with me. Any information you can send me with be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
