Portfolio of Writer and Artist Joe Douglas


G’day. I’m Joe. Thanks for stopping by my portfolio.

I’m an Aussie writer and artist who has been living in the UK since 2016.

My work has appeared on several websites, such as Medium, RetroCollect, GameTripper and Gemr.com. I am currently working on my first book, a history of video game company SEGA.

Outside of this, I have worked on several on-line projects, such as originating ChronicleChamber.com, the longest running and most prominent fan site dedicated to the classic comics hero The Phantom. I also created and maintain the Phantom 2040 Archive and am a regular contributor on the PhantomWiki.

I’m a huge geek and collector with a strong love for comics, SEGA and their mascot Sonic the Hedgehog, as well as the fantasy writings of Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, Branden Sanderson and sci-fi such as Ghostbusters, Doctor Who, The Matrix and Back To the Future.

    Happy Pride Month!

    Happy Pride month, everyone! Having plenty of friends and family who identify as LGBTQ+ I’ve always been a supporter of the movement and think it’s great when various media gets involved. Case in point, the cover image for this post. It’s actually a cropped version of the cover for Fantomen 9/2018, Sweden’s The Phantom comic…
