Marvel Silver Age Collection

Signed by Stan Lee up for Auction

All proceeds to benefit Hero Initiative

Los Angeles, CA (August 17, 2009) – Todd McDevitt and New Dimension Comics are proving that they’re a Hero.

When Pittsburgh-area comic retailer Todd McDevitt recently purchased a major Marvel Silver Age collection, he decided to sell the books and make a difference at the same time. McDevitt donated 50 of the books to the Hero Initiative. Stan Lee and CGC compounded the good deed, with Stan autographing all 50 books, which CGC graded in their prestigious Signature Series for free. Now, the 50 Stan-signed Silver Age Marvels are being auctioned via eBay, 10 per week for the next five weeks. Auctions start August 17, and can be viewed at http://qurls.com?i=48020

“My hat’s off to Titanic Todd McDevitt for the great generosity he has shown towards comicdom’s time-honored Hero Initiative!,” said Stan Lee. “The comics he has donated are worth a bundle—and so is big-hearted Todd!”

“CGC is thrilled to help collectors and creators come together to support the fantastic Hero Initiative cause,” said CGC Vice-President Paul Litch. “Any way we can help raise money to give back to those that have given us so much is an honor indeed. Bid early and bid often!”
