My latest article for Gemr.com looks at the history of the longest running collectable card game in the world, Magic: The Gathering.
This one took a lot of research as I’d never really looked into the history of the game before despite having played it off-and-on since 2013. It’s not a comprehensive recount of the game, but more a general overview.
Still, I hope you enjoy. 😀

My second article for collector website Gemr.com went live recently. This one was an absolute pleasure to write as it looks at the history of my personal favourite comics hero, The Phantom.
The article takes a bit of a different tact than most “history of…” articles thought in that it doesn’t just recount how the series came to be and where it is today, but rather the impact it had on the people who read it and how that in turn influenced their culture and the character himself!
Lots of research went in to this, so if you take a moment to read it (pleas do) I hope you enjoy it.

For roughly a year I’ve been cataloguing my collection at Gemr.com, a social network of sorts for collectors. Well, about a month ago I was given the opportunity to contribute to their blog and today that contribution has gone live!
It takes the form of an (I like to think exhaustive) article on the history of my favourite ever toy line, Mighty Max.
I’ve very humbled to be given the chance to put my writing out there on a (much) larger platform than this humble blog, so please take a moment to head on over and give the article a read!
