December 11, 2003, Runnemede, NJ – Continuing
their charitable relationship with the ACTOR (A Commitment
To Our Roots) Fund, Dynamic Forces announced today a bold
new step in the creation and premiere of an exclusive fund-raising
“ACTOR has estimated that DF has helped
raise over $50,000.00 for the Fund to date,” said Nick
Barrucci, President of Dynamic Forces. “In talking with
Jim [McLauchlin, President of ACTOR], I mentioned doing an
exclusive bust premiere. He loved the idea, so we locked Morbius
into the slot, and we’re a go to raise even more money
for this truly worthy cause.
"ACTOR Comic Fund has been able to do
a world of good for a great number of deserving creators,”
said McLauchlin. “The only way we're able to pull this
off is with the help of generous folks such as those at Marvel
and Dynamic Forces. Personally, I've been a fan or Morbius
ever since I had my dog-eared copy of Amazing Spider-Man #101.
I'll be ordering one of these, myself."
From his first appearance back in 1971 in
Amazing Spider-Man #101, Dr. Michael Morbius has been trying
to take a bite out of Peter Parker... literally! Now, thanks
to Dynamic Forces and ACTOR, this Bust is premiering exclusively
through ACTOR, with proceeds set to go to the charity. Retailers
and customers will find ordering information for Morbius in
the March issue of Previews, and available now for pre-order
on the Dynamic Forces website (www.dynamicforces.com)
