A new Mr. T comic series is available now. Please read the following info text:
“Quit your jibber-jabbing and buy my comic!”
So says the star of The A-Team: the Mohawk-haired, jewelry-covered actor / former wrestler / powerhouse pop culture icon … Mr.T.
On 21st May 2005 – Mr.T’s birthday – and all-new monthly Mr.T comic book series is launched.
Published by UK-based APComics (www.apcomics.com), written by Chris Bunting, drawn by Neil Edwards and with Mr.T himself as Creative Supervisor, this promises to be excitement as only Mr.T can deliver. Says writer Chris Bunting: “Mr.T is a living legend and therefore earns the privilege of his own comic book. Great stories featuring this larger-than-life star have been going untold, and much to everyone’s delight, we’re going to tell them! “The Mr.T comic will be something that people can relate to, while at the same time, enjoy. It’ll have all the spectacle and drama that makes comic books so exciting.” And announcing possibly the biggest licensing deal in the history of UK comics, APComics’s publisher Richard Emms added: “I honestly can’t put into words the significance of a British publisher having an American icon like Mr.T on our team! He was born to be a comic book star!”
Ask your local comic retailer to reserve your copy of Mr.T now, and don’t forget to check out http://www.apcomics.com/mrtpage.htm For further information, interview requests or graphics contact Richard Emms: Rich@apcomics.com – Direct dial: +44 (0)1727 852 131 –
Dwight has been added to the list of guests at the Screenheroes convention.
Dirk is listed as a guest for the Screenheroes convention, taking place in Utrecht, Netherlands on September 24th and 25th. Among the guests are also Richard Hatch, Terry Carter and many others.
Finally, the A-Team Season One Boxset is also available in Germany with a mixture of the ARD and RTL dubbings, so the voices change constantly from episode to episode. Brilliant picture, German version with irritating subtitles, some very hard cuts from scene to scene, just like someone cut out some commercials.
Meanwhile, the US is waiting for Season Two, which is going to be released on April 12th. More info on the German version at
Dirk is currently working in Good Old Germany, playing the part of an aged Hollywood Star in the Peter Thorwarth movie Strike - Eingelocht (working title). There are still people wanted to be part of a party scene on October 4th. For more information have a look at

Action Replay 2003
At the beginning of the week, Action Replay 2003, the first ever A-Team convention was cancelled. The Bournemouth International Centre, the event´s planned venue, couldn´t be kept after one of the sponsors jumped ship. The search for a replacement remained fruitless - only three weeks time remaining. To all of you out there already holding plane tickets and hotel reservations - we wish you luck to get at least part of your money back. In the meantime, some of the fans try to unite for a private convention, so if you plan to go anyway, check out the event´s mailing list, which is still up.
Some pictures of the actors and the Fedcon report have been missing. On some of the pages, it was not possible to send an email to the ATFS. There have been some broken links. I hope we've found them all. If you should find a broken link, please send an email to the ATFS.
The missing guest stars from L to Z have been added to the guest star list.
Robert Vaughn's "Short Biography" and "His work so far" are online now.

New project! A page dedicated to all the music which was played in the A-Team episodes. Sure, you know about Boy George´s songs. But we get frequent questions about other episodes, e.g. what´s the song played at the beginning of "Theory of Revolution"? (Louie Louie by the Kingsmen by the way...)
Many of you have been asking for a page listing all the music of the A-Team. I don´t have the time to rewatch all episodes - so please help! Just write an e-mail.

Cult TV Festival
Mr. T has been spotted at the beginning of the music video "Pass the Courvoisier" by Busta Rhymes and P. Diddy. He´s entering a party just the way we know it from the A-Team opening titles - he´s just breaking through a door.
Dwight´s planned talk-based show "Dark Matters" will not be produced. It was intended to be a show based on UFOs and other controversial subjects like conspiracy theories and would have been hosted by Dwight and Don Ecker. Dwight was a frequent guest at Don´t UFOs Tonight radio show. After the events of September 11th, both of them didn´t think it would be right to pursue the project furtheron.
Dirk´s cruise at the end of January 2002 was a success. For the first reactions of ATFS members who were able to be part of it, stay tuned. All members receiving the paper version of the BN will be the first to know...
Dirk is indeed announced to appear at Cult TV weekend from October 25th - 28th, 2002. The convention will be taking place in Merseyside near Liverpool, England.
He is also announced for InConjunction, taking place in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, from July 5th - 7th, 2002.
The ATFS website is linked with www.cannell.com now, the homepage of Stephen J. Cannell Productions.
There are rumours that Dirk will appear at Cult TV Con in England later this year. I´ll keep you up-to-date.
Stephen J. Cannell is on tour to promote his latest novel "The Viking Funeral" in the States. So if you have planned a trip there in January or are actually living there, it might pay off to visit Cannell.com in advance.

Dirk Benedict is announced as a guest at FedCon 10, taking place from May 10-12, 2002 in Bonn, Germany. Dirk confirmed he´ll be there, if no other responsibilities in acting/writing/directing would keep him from going to Germany.

meet lots of you there.
