On the Mark is a gen Mark Hamill newsletter put out by the fan club of the same name.

Contents include reports on various theater roles (Amadeus, The Nerd, Harrigan and Hart, and more) and television roles (including Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Partridge Family, The Bill Cosby Show, and The Muppet Show), much fan artwork, memories and commemorations of Star Wars, reports of meetings with Mark, and lots of photographs. Also included are clippings, some original and some copied, that feature Hamill.

Publisher's ad: "Each issue is from 6 to 8 pages and includes articles on the current career of Mark Hamill, plus exclusive photographs, artwork, JEDI and Star Wars news, cartoons, a letter column and special articles on Mark's past career accomplishments. Published quarterly with the approval of Mark Hamill. A one year subscription gets you 4 issues and announcements of special events." [1]

The zine issued a survey in 1987 called the "Fantasy Film Survey." It is unclear what the results were used for.

A supplement, Green Harvest, was published starting in 1983.
