Official Press Release

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Onward and upward to greater glory! Ask Stan Lee for the definition of "Excelsior!" and that's exactly what he'll tell you. And Stan has helped A.C.T.O.R., A Commitment To Our Roots, reach greater glory with the Excelsior! Wristband. The mega-popular wristband just sold its 10,000th unit, with proceeds benefiting the charity that is dedicated to helping Golden and Silver Age comic book veterans in need.

Excelsior! Wristbands are still available at participating comic stores, and retailers can reorder using Diamond Code AUG052602. They're also available at conventions where A.C.T.O.R. or CGC, Comics Guaranty Corporation, is set up. Suggested retail price is $3.

For Internet ordering, ACTOR is proud to announce its new partners: Paradise Comics will be selling direct to fans in Canada, and Dynamic Forces for worldwide, excluding Canada.

"Paradise Comics is pleased and honored to help assist creators who have contributed so much to our industry," said Peter Dixon of Paradise Comics. "Remember, this wristband lets you be a hero to those who created your heroes."

"We're happy to support ACTOR in this endeavor, just as we have in since Day One," said Nick Barucci of Dynamic Forces. "Helping an organization such as this its own reward, and it's one that pays off in ways that can't be quantified. We're doubly happy to be partnered with Stan Lee in this, who has also generously given of himself."

"Wow! It looks like Excelsior really is helping ACTOR move on to greater glory-- and I couldn't be happier. But why only 10,000? C'mon, heroes, let's really show how we feel about the guys who made comicdom what it is-- let's shoot for 100,000! I mean, how often do you get a chance to have the best-dressed wrist in town?" said Stan Lee.
