ValCom, Inc. Announces the 2nd of Three Productions with Stan Lee and Jeff Franklin.

LAS VEGAS -- ValCom, Inc. (OTCBB:VACM) (Frankfurt XETRA:VAM), a Las Vegas based entertainment production company, along with entertainment giants, Stan Lee's POW! Entertainment (OTC:POWN) and entertainment industry producer Jeff Franklin announced the second of three upcoming films, a Stan Lee Sci-Fi picture entitled "The Harpy" written by DeClan O'Brien and directed by Josh Becker.

"The Harpy" will star Steven Baldwin who appeared in "The Usual Suspects," "28 Days," "Nuts" and "Brief Encounter" and Peter Jason, whose more notable appearances include John Carpenter films such as "The Prince of Darkness," "They Live," "Village of the Damned," "Escape from L.A." and "Ghosts of Mars."

"Pre-production of "The Harpy" started Monday, June 26th at our recently acquired Burbank Studios. This film means $2.5 million worth of revenue for ValCom and is for NBC Universal Sci-Fi Network to be aired in May 2007. I am thrilled to see these projects come through the company and to have the revenue flowing again. I see tremendous growth for the company giving the opportunity to increase shareholder value," stated CEO Vince Vellardita.

Stan Lee, chairman and chief creative officer of POW!, is the creator and inventor of the modern superhero. A prolific author, Lee revolutionized the comic book industry by creating compelling characters who, despite extraordinary powers and talents, are nonetheless plagued by the same doubts and difficulties experienced by ordinary people. Some of his most enduring characters, like Spider-Man(R)(a), The Hulk(R)(a), and the X-Men(R)(a), have spun off into television programs and feature films that have grossed hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office.

Jeff Franklin lends years of entertainment production experience where he facilitates the overall vision of each project. 'It's a privilege to join with ValCom and POW! The combination will give us the opportunity to bring more of Stan's vision to the market place,' said executive producer Franklin.

A state-of-the-art entertainment facility, ValCom provides unparalleled production capabilities that will be championed by Chairman and CEO, Vince Vellardita. 'Joining forces with POW! Entertainment and Stan Lee as well as movie mogul Jeff Franklin is an absolute honor. Our union will most certainly change the face of entertainment,' stated Vellardita.
