IDW Mars Attack comic & Topps Scavenger Hunt
« on: June 11, 2012, 05:26:22 AM »



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.

Neat! Thanks for the list of booths! I'll have to make sure I go by all of them to get the cards...
