The big draw of 2013 Mars Attacks Invasion is that it offers a new story for the classic trading card franchise. However, the set's various autograph sets touch on more than just the new cards. It goes back and covers the history of Mars Attacks, including the original release, comics and even the 1996 film that was directed by Tim Burton.
2013 Mars Attacks Invasion has four different types of autographs. The most common are Artist Autographs. These are essentially parallels that include a signature from the artist who created the card.
Classic Creator Autographs are signed by people who worked on past Mars Attacks projects including the original cards and comics from the 1990s. Among them is Charlie Adlard, perhaps best known for his work on the Walking Dead comic. He has been the book's artist since issue 7.
The two-card Comic Creator Autographs set highlights John Layman and John McCrea, the creators behind the latest Mars Attacks comics from IDW.
The Mars Attacks movies has a massive cast that includes Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Michael J. Fox and Natalie Portman. You're not going to find any of them here. However, the Mars Attacks Movie Autographs checklist does include Pam Grier, an icon of the 1970s. And while he may not be known for his face, Frank Welker is one of the most accomplished voice actors ever. Among his many roles are Fred from Scooby-Doo, Megatron in Transformers and Stripe in Gremlins.
