We’re pleased to report that Lancaster cartoonist David Hughes comic story Thomas Wogan is Dead, first reviewed on downthetubes last year, is now available to read on Apple’s iPad.
This is British publishers Tabella Publishing‘s first ebook on Apple’s iPad platform, the result of what they say comes after reading many books on iphone development, doing tutorials, submitting forum posts and more.
Tabella picked up reprint rights to the quirky tale set in Morecambe (and the hereafter – although is there a difference?) partly after reading the downthetubes review.
• Thomas Wogan is Dead is still available in print from Tabella Publishing for £5.99: more details here.
