If you are a 'Mars Attacks' fan, than let me tell you about the best history of the franchise that I have ever read!
'Mars Attacks' (from Abrams ComicArts) celebrates 50 years of Martian invasion in the best way possible. Following an introduction / history by Mars Attacks co-creator Len Brown the books looks at every card (front and back) from the original series as well as cards and art from the past few years. You get the full color front and the back print so you can follow the incredible story.
The book also comes with cool sketches and a fascinating look at some alternate art from the original set that were toned down in case of negative public reaction.
The book comes with a dust jacket that not only looks like an old wrapper but feels like an old wax pack. It's a bit see thru showing a piece of gum underneath like the old Topps packs (of anything) would show. This book is so good, you can smell and taste that sugary sweet gum! Plus, the books include 4 bonus trading cards...exclusive to the book!
If you love 'Mars Attacks' or know someone who does, this book (retail at $19.95 US) makes the perfect gift. Plus it's much cheaper than hunting down the original cards.
Matman Rating: 5 out of 5 full color awesomeness!
P.S. - my book (that i got at New York Comic Con) came autographed by Len Brown and Zina Saunders, number ONE of 50!
