This year, for the first time since 1983, we will see Mark Hamill on the big-screen as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So, naturally, interest in his past experiences and activities as a Star Wars icon has increased. Hamill’s been a staple of the convention circuit for years, thanks to his adventures in a galaxy far, far away as well as his time on Batman: The Animated Series, and throughout that time he’s signed a lot of autographs. In fact, he’s signed so many that he eventually opted to get a little creative.
A series of images that apparently show Hamill’s unique autograph technique have begun circulating on the web, and if they’re real, they definitely show off both Hamill’s creativity and his willingness to poke fun at the franchise that made him a star. All of the signatures are on Star Wars trading cards, which feature images from the original trilogy, and they all mock one element of the films or another, from Darth Vader to the death of Luke’s adopted guardians. If these are real, Mark Hamill is responsible for shattering the illusions of a fan or two.
UPDATE: These signatures are the real thing, and come from the collection of autograph authenticator Steve Grad.
