Directly from the recent New York Comic Con newsletter written by Lance Fensterman here is a HUGE appearance announcement:
“Hi di ho! New York Comic Con Show Manager Lance Fensterman here and all I can say is Mark Hamill. Rarely does a name capture as much awe and reverence. Rarely, too does an actor get the chance to embody a timeless, sweeping saga. Mark Hamill — the man who breathed life into Luke Skywalker — will be coming to New York Comic Con through a partnership with Official Pix, New-Gen and NYCC! While most known for his lead role in the Classic Star Wars Trilogy, Mark is also a prolific voice actor who has lent his voice to hundreds of cartoons including Batman: The Animated Series, The Simpsons, Samurai Jack and Powerpuff Girls. Also, an avid comic book collector and writer, Hamill created his own comic book anti-hero, The Black Pearl, for Dark Horse Comics. Mark will be signing at New York Comic Con with Official Pix and be speaking on a dedicated Q&A. He will also appear on a very special panel with New-Gen, discussing his role in the upcoming film based on this science fiction comic book series. The New-Gen panel with Mark Hamill and the Creative Team will be held on Saturday October 15 at 1:30 PM. For more information visit www.newgenuniverse.com. Listen peeps, we told you it was going to start heating up and here it is! Lots of new guest announcements are coming at you left and right, as well as all kinds of events. There is so much for you to participate in – this newsletter just goes and goes! Hope to see you at some of the great things happening below as well as NYCC!”
I rarely get excited for celebrity appearances, but I can’t miss a chance to have the Joker himself sign my copy of Arkham Asylum!
Hope to see you all there.
