As you might notice from the menu above, I’ve removed the Writings and Artwork links. This is because I’ve built myself “real” portfolio of work which can be found HERE, or via the new Portfolio link in the menu.
Please take a look at let me know what you think. 🙂
As some of you may know, I started the Phantom phan site, ChronicleChamber.com, all the way back in 2006. I ran the site pretty much by myself until 2018, when I made the decision to stay in the UK.
The Phantom, sadly, has basically no presence in the UK, so it made sense to hand the reigns over to those who were in a better place to continue delivering Phantom content. Thus, the current runners of the site stepped in.
Some pretty cool stuff happened during that 10 year run though; not only was it the biggest (and, if I say so myself, best) Phantom website out there, we also started up X-Band, the worlds first, and so far only, Phantom-dedicated podcast.
We also started regular phan meetings at conventions such as Supanova and the Phantom Preservation Project, which aims to archive and preserve all Phantom-based material that has been released but is not longer in publication, such as newspaper articles, fan club newsletters, old music and so on. I’m really proud of what myself and the others achieved in that time.
Well, the other day I received a package that contained some brilliant gifts. Those currently running the site have taken it from strength to strength and one of the things they’ve done is produce ChronicleChamber.com t-shirts and stickers to give away at cons to help promote the site. Kindly, they sent a bunch my way!
I absolutely love these, and they are going to have a very special place in my collection. It’s thirteen years since I started ChronicleChamber.com, and even though I’m not working on it myself any more it makes me extremely proud to know it’s still going so strong!
My new article for Gemr went up recently, looking at the various people of the Marvel Universe who have become the Ghost Rider throughout the characters 52 year history.
In the article I cover six Ghost Riders, but in actual fact there are more. I chose the six featured in the article because they are either the main-line Riders, or I find them particularly interesting.
Unexpectedly, the folks at Gemr asked me to up my contributions from two articles a month to three, starting this month. Guess they must like what I’m doing, which I awesome!
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this article on Ghost Rider.
While the collection isn’t huge – to be fair though, there isn’t a heck of a lot of Myst merch out there – I am proud of it. Mostly it’s variations of game releases, special editions and so forth, but there are a few other cool things in there as well.
I recently uploaded photos of all my Myst stuff to Gemr, so you can check out the collection HERE.
My latest article for Gemr.com looks at a question that many comic fans have asked before; is it better to buy single issue comics or wait for the collected edition? It’s a question I’ve mentioned a little previously here on Collectorized and one that I really think deserves to be discussed more, especially as people’s relationship with comics and how they want to consume them changes.
It’s also probably my longest article to date, so that’s cool. Please, head over and have a read. 😀
My Mum and Dad recently digitised all our old family photo and among them was this pearler from our first visit to Sega World, Sydney. Not sure exactly how old I am here, probably somewhere between 10 and 13. I remember the trip though it was fantastic, though!
A few years ago I wrote an article for RetoCollect.com entitled Remembering Sega World, Sydney which recounted the various rides and attractions at the park as well as the story surrounding it’s sad closure. If you’d like to know more about the park, please give it a read. 😀
My latest article for Gemr.com is all about my favorite Marvel hero, Doctor Strange. The article focuses on the various costumes the good Doctor has had over the years and the reasons behind the changes, be they for story or editorial reasons.
This weekend was the second Comic Con in Portsmouth, England. Last year’s con was a huge success and sold out, so it wasn’t a surprise that a second was announced. This year, however, the organisers made sure to make it bigger and better!
