SDCC 2012 | Topps Celebrates 50 Years of Mayhem with Mars Attacks!

In 1962 the Topps trading card company released a provocative set of cards detailing a martian invasion that was both a sensation with science fiction fans and controversial among said fans’ disapproving parents.  This year marks the 50th anniversary of Mars Attacks (which inspired the 1996 Tim Burton movie) and Topps will be at Comic Con this year to celebrate.

Topps is going to be debuting a brand new commemorative line of trading cards celebrating Mars Attack’s “50 Years of Mayhem”, called Mars Attacks Heritage. The new set is said to include some classic images from the original line of cards. A plethora of Mars Attacks merch will also be at the con including IDW Publishing’s commemorative comic book series that released last week and sold out of all 55,ooo copies of its debut issue.  In addition, tomorrow on Saturday Topps will have a Mars Attacks: 50 Years of Mayhem panel featuring Adam Levine from Topps and IDW’s Greg Goldstein discussing both the hit comic series and the forthcoming Heritage line of Mars Attacks cards. The panel is scheduled for tomorrow June 14 12:30 to 1:30p in Room 8 and features among its special guests, card artist Jason Edmiston.
