      I like '70s-'80s American comic books. A bit weird I know, didn't buy any for a couple of decades and then fell into getting a bunch again and have been reading for a few years now. Just got a small stack of Star Trek comics from the late '90s and having a lot of fun reading them about one or two a night. They've been great to have around during the lockdowns but I'll probably have to rid myself of at least some of them in the near future. I got into reading them as a kid in the '70s who was chronically ill in bed for stretches, mostly funny and animals ones but then somehow tried a few sci-fi comics and then even gave superheroes a try and found some of those i got a bit hooked on like a soap!

      As for video tapes, I think i expected they were mostly worthless once DVDs and now Blu-Rays have come along. I do still have a few, have one on the women of Coronation Street and another of that strange Czech or Jan Svankmeir Alice In Wonderland, they used to cost a small fortune in the late '80s and early '90s. I still have a working player, at least it worked the last time I bothered to drag it out and connect it. We have old family home movies transferred to vhs tapes, and a small box full of things recorded off the air, like a repeat of that Hollywood documentary series.

        Admittedly I still use VHS tapes (never got used to recordable DVDs because of the incompatibility of the machines), and I would probably tape over them with my own stuff, but I think that 200 of them would even be too much for me to be in receipt of these days.
