What do you get when you mash up Stan Lee, a typewriter and a Mars Attacks invader? A Joe Jusko masterpiece that's, perhaps, one of the greatest promo cards of all-time.
The card will be given away exclusively at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo this November. Topps will be setting up at the show for the first time, giving away promos on a first-come, first-served basis. The Stan Lee Mars Attacks card is limited to 2,500 copies. Entitled "Stan Strikes," it features fully painted art from Joe Jusko done with the classic Mars Attacks design. A signed limited edition print of the artwork will also be available to buy at the show.
"In 1962 when Mars Attacks was making its mark on the world of trading cards, Stan and his stable of sensational superhero stories were transforming the landscape of comic books," said Adam Levine of Topps. "I can't think of any better match-up than these two pop culture icons to face off in the most outrageous, out-of-this world trading card crossover we've ever seen."
