MARK HAMILL’S POP CULTURE QUEST PREMIERES NOVEMBER 15, 2016 And airs Tuesdays On www.Comic-ConHQ.com
On November 15th the force will be strong on devices across the nation as Mark Hamill’s Pop Culture Quest comes to Comic–Con HQ. Mark Hamill has been collecting comic books, original artwork, toys and other mementos since the early 1970s and now he gets to share his passion and enthusiasm for collecting in his new web series.
“I’ve been a collector all my life,” said Hamill. “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!”
At the Star Wars Writer’s Roundtable at NYCC, Star Warsauthor Chuck Wendig said that a small group of people are capable of changing the entire galaxy.
This is true of our favorite heroes from a galaxy far, far away, but also of the select group of authors who are documenting the history of an expansive galaxy through their latest Star Wars novels. These authors’ work impacts a whole world ofStar Wars stories each time they pen the tales of fallen Jedi, harrowing battles, and intergalactic leaders.
Star Wars authors Timothy Zahn (Heir to the Empire, Thrawn), Chuck Wendig (Aftermath, Life Debt), Jim Luceno (Tarkin, Catalyst), E.K. Johnston (Ahsoka), Charles Soule (Lando, Obi-Wan & Anakin, Poe Dameron) and Kieron Gillen (Darth Vader) came together for aStar WarsWriters Roundtable to chat about a galaxy far, far away…
October 6th to the 9th was New York Comic Con. I was able to represent Coffee With Kenobi as press. There was not as much of an official Star Wars presence as there was at last years NYCC but it wasn’t completely barren this time around. The Hasbro panel had plenty of news for new Rogue One toys and the Star Wars Authors Roundtable was a fun and engrossing conversation about all things writing and Star Wars. Let’s dig in shall we?
