Mars Attacks AGAIN this October
For us old-school horror/sci-fi fanatics out there, Mars Attacks was one of the coolest and goriest properties we've ever seen! And, no we're not talking about the Tim Burton movie.
We're talking about a new book from Abrams ComicArts to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the highly collectible cards: the first ever hardcover collection Mars Attacks!
Originally a series of science-fiction trading cards produced in 1962 by The Topps Company, the controversial cards were thought too graphic by the general public but were loved by the series’ devoted followers and were later used as inspiration for the 1996 Tim Burton movie of the same name. Depicting the gruesome invasion of Earth by Martians, the story unfolds over the course of the fifty-five cards, showing futuristic battle scenes with Martians and their cruel, often bizarre methods of attack and torture.
Mars Attacks fans will obsess over the rare and never-before-seen material (sketches, concept art, test materials) as well as a chance to see the full set of hard-to-find 1994 sequel cards.
The book also features an introduction by the series’ co-creator Len Brown and an afterword by Zina Saunders, daughter of the series’ original artist, Norm Saunders.
Look for it on October 1st. Order your copy NOW!
