 The promotional tour officially began in Chicago, Mr. T's home town, and continued to Dayton, Ohio; Los Angeles; Garden Grove, Calif.; Detroit; Charlotte, N.C.; Indianapolis; Philadelphia and New York. Hundreds of people in each city have stood in line for hours to meet Mr. T and get his autograph on their first copy of the first edition of "Mr. T And The T-Force," already recognized as a collector's item. The tour continues to Lincoln, Neb.; Dallas; Northern California; Washington D.C.; Honolulu; Germany and Japan.
 The initial orders for "Mr. T And The T-Force" signaled the industry's enthusiasm and support, and reorders began before the comic book was even out. Sales have made "Mr T. And The T-Force" the hottest- selling comic book since the death of Superman. Mr. T's universal appeal has drawn new customers to the comic book stores and is expected to boost the multimillion dollar pop culture to greater heights.
