I'd like to try out a new weekly thread. The idea is simple-Tell us something you were a fanatic about in the 80's or 90's and give us examples.
Were you a fan of Marvel comics? did you collect all the Marvel cards? Did you dress up for Halloween as any of the characters?
Were you a fan of Star Trek TNG? Did you go to any of the conventions? Did you wear a costume?
Did you join a fan club or a fanzine?
Did you send an actor or character a letter? Did they write back?
THESE ARE JUST EXAMPLES. You can talk about ANYTHING!
We want you talk tell us about anything extreme fan antics and of course if you can include a picture!
So we share one thing each week that we were a fanatic about?
I was definitely a Star Wars fanatic. I got ALL the novels and most of the comics. I almost always had a Star Wars book in hand back in the 90s(family and friends made fun of me a little, but it was all good natured). I would read those books over and over again. I especially loved the novels by Zahn, the X-Wing series of novels(especially the Wraith Squadron ones), and the Corellian Trilogy.
Things have not been as good for Star Wars since the prequel movies and since Del Rey got a hold of the book licensing, but I still love and enjoy to this day the original trilogy and the books published by Bantam.
