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?


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.
