Mars Attacks Ready to Invade San Diego Comic-Con

Mars Attacks Ready to Invade San Diego Comic-Con

The Martians are coming to San Diego in July. Sorry, Padres fans, but they're not going to abduct Cameron Maybin and his pitiful batting average. Rather, Topps is producing an exclusive nine-card Mars Attacks promo card set for the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con.

The nine cards fit together to form a puzzle. It features artwork from John McCrea, the artist working on the Mars Attacks comic book for IDW.

Getting all nine of the Mars Attacks San Diego Comic-Con cards will require a little work,though. They're being handed out at nine different booths throughout the massive show:

  • Abrams Books
  • Diamond Comic Distributors
  • Funko
  • Gentle Giant Ltd.
  • IDW Publishing
  • Mezco Toyz
  • Nerdist News (via Legendary Pictures)
  • Russ Walks & Wild Tempest
  • Toynk Toys

Like most Comic-Con swag, supplies are limited.

The promo cards coincide with the release of 2012 Topps Mars Attacks Heritage. The 2012 San Diego Comic-Con runs July 11-15.
