Comic-Con has started their own paid video streaming site and I’m convince that if you paid for every site like this out there you’d end up paying more for all of them than you do cable. They have a number of comic and pop culture shows and some original series, like Mark Hamill’s Pop Culture Quest. The series follow Hamill and his puppet pal Pop the rabbit (don’t ask me, I’m not signed up for it) as they explore various aspects of pop culture. Since Comic-Con HQ is a paid site I have not seen a full episode, but thanks to DC’s YouTube channel we can see part of it.
In a recent episode Hamill visits the new California offices of DC Entertainment (Time Warner moved them from New York to bring them closer to Hollywood, a controversial decision to some comic fans since New York is the heart of both DC and Marvel…more Marvel since half their superheroes live in New York.) We get a look at the DC archives, including how Batman would have reacted had fans voted for Jason Todd to live and some amazing art pieces, as well as seeing Jim Lee draw the Joker as Hamill explains how he came up with the Joker voice that a lot of today’s fans insist is THE Joker. It’s possibly not the full episode since they call it a clip but it’s an idea as to what the show is like and interesting as well.
If you have some extra cash and want to check out this and other shows, visit the Comic-Con HQ website. Personally I have more important things to spend the money I don’t have on.
