Mars Attacks

For those of you who thought that Valentine’s Day love was only for zombies, remember, there’s aliens too!

The folks over at Topps sent over this delightful Mars Attacks Valentine’s Day message. So, this Valentine’s Day, why not give an alien your heart…literally.

Topps announced last month that they’d be releasing a Mars Attacks commemorative trading card set this July to coincide with the company’s 50th anniversary. The set will contain reprints of the original 55 cards from 1962, as well as 25 never-before-seen subjects.

Ten cards, painted by Jason Edmiston, are based on storyboarded sketches from original series pencillers Wally Wood and Bob Powell that did not originally appear in the 1962 card set. Edmiston’s finished works pay homage to the pulp sci-fi style of Norm Saunders, the master painter who first gave MARS ATTACKS its signature look. Fifteen all-new cards are provided by Eisner award-winning comic book artist John McCrea, the acclaimed illustrator of IDW’s forthcoming MARS ATTACKS comic book series. McCrea is known to comics fans as the co-creator of Hitman (in collaboration with writer Garth Ennis), among numerous other high-profile assignments. His new, powerful imagery for the card set will provide fans with added insights to the comics as well as to the all-new MARS ATTACKS universe.

A variety of extra inserts are also designed to add collectibility and fun: limited edition multi-colored parallels and 3D lenticulars will be randomly included in packs. And, for the very first time, Topps will be including MARS ATTACKS sketch cards in boxes. Many talented artists are on board to provide their one-of-a-kind hand-rendered sketch art.

Mars Attacks

Along with the trading card set will be Mars Attacks action figures and plush toys from Mezco; comics and graphic novels from IDW (which we reported on last month); a commemorative book from Abrams Books; model kits from Moebius; costumes from Incogneato; T-shirts from Impact; statues and busts from Quarantine; holiday ornaments from Gentle Giant; limited-edition prints from Russell Walks; and bobble head dolls and vinyl figures from Funko.
