MR. T AND THE T-FORCE UPDATE: 'SMOKEDREAMS' WILL BE RELEASED TODAY, AUG. 12

 NORTHBROOK, Ill., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- "SMOKEDREAMS," book two of NOW Entertainment's newest comic book "Mr. T And The T-Force" which features Mr. T, will be released today, Thursday, Aug. 12, in comic book stores and three weeks later at newsstands. This pro-social, action- packed comic book, drawn and written by Neal Adams, is already noted as the summer's hottest. This week Mr. T has returned to his home town of Chicago -- a recess from his worldwide promotional tour -- to participate in a presentation ceremony at Chicago's Planet Hollywood, Friday, Aug. 13, at 1 p.m. Mr. T will present a limited edition signed and numbered issue of book one and the "Mr. T And The T-force" satin baseball jacket that he wore this summer during the tour, along with various other Mr. T memorabilia. Although Mr. T resumes his scheduled promotional appearances Saturday, Aug. 14, with an autograph session in Dallas at Lone Star Comics, his presence will be felt at Chicago's annual Bud Billiken parade. Members of the "T-Force" will be home-based at the Armory with giveaways, and positioned along the parade route with contest forms for 1,000 prizes (t-shirts, autographed posters, comic book subscriptions and comic books).
 Via "Mr. T And The T-Force," Mr. T joins the ranks of Superman and other heroic crime fighters and do-gooders, with one difference -- Mr. T is real. He does not fight aliens from outer space, he combats real life problems in our communities; he exercises brain power and wit, not superpowers and weapons. "Mr. T And The T-Force" is controversial, like Mr. T. In the book, as in real life, Mr. T cuts no slack for misdirected youths -- he challenges them. The people Mr. T touches become part of his T-Force, and together they champion good against evil.
 "Mr. T and the T-Force" is not just for kids. Sales demographics reflect what industry experts had predicted -- Mr. T's universal appeal is drawing new readers to the already multimillion dollar pop culture -- from youth to middle age. "Mr. T and the T-Force" has quickly garnered social and academic recognition in that it entertains readers in a realistic setting without gratuitous violence and delivers a message at the same time.
 After Labor Day fans will be able to reach Mr. T through an AT&T 900 number that will provide a motivational message for callers as well as time to leave a message. The cost will be capped at approximately $3.95. Mr. T will announce the number at future appearances and fans can find the number printed in future "Mr. T and the T-Force" issues. "Mr. T and the T-Force" is distributed on the newsstand by Warner Publisher Services, a division of Time-Warner.
