Actor Mark Hamill goes on a search for the ultimate fan collections of, well, collectables.
Mark Hamill is best known to some for his role as Luke Skywalker from the Star Wars saga. To others, he’s the voice of the Joker from numerous Batman animated shows and computer games.
But for now, he is a fellow geek presenting a new show that will broadcast as part of a new streaming service, Comic-Con HQ. This service aims to extend the Comic-Con experience throughout the year with new exclusive content.
The first program from Comic-Con HQ is Mark Hamill’s Pop Culture Quest, a look into the impressive collections of fellow geeks around the world. We’re not just talking comic collections either! The show takes a look at a diverse range of collections out there including cars, pinball machines, movie props and even sneakers.
As it turns out, Mark is a self-confessed geek who has been collecting for many years himself. He says,
“I’ve been a collector all my life, this show is a natural outgrowth of that passion. Now I have an opportunity to collect other people’s collections! I can’t wait to see what’s out there and share it with the world. Collectibles are a living history of who and what we are, so we just might learn something…but there’s no doubt we’re going to have fun!”
The first episode is now available to watch for free and features a visit to DC Comics headquarters and more specifically, the famous Batman artist, Jim Lee.
You can watch the first episode below, underneath that is the tease for the whole series.
