The Topps Company and Steve Jackson Games have announced Munchkin Apocalypse: Mars Attacks, a 15-card booster set for Munchkin Apocalypse that will feature artwork from the original 1962 Topps’ Mars Attacks non-sports card set and will be released in the summer of 2013.
Topps’ classic Mars Attacks property, which has spawned comic books and feature films freely over the past 50 years, is currently in the midst of a major revival (see "'Mars Attacks' Gets Major Relaunch") that includes books (see “Mars Attacks”), toys, and a new comic book series from IDW (see "'Chew' Creator Savors 'Mars Attacks'").
The Mars Attacks’ brand of outrageous science fiction action and off-beat, dark humor should play well in the Munchkin Apocalypse universe. Steve Jackson definitely sees the brand’s possibilities: "We are going to be completely faithful to the original Mars Attacks concepts. We are going to blow things up without reason or mercy or even very good aim. We will continue until the squishy Earthmen force us back to make a last stand on our dying desert home. It’s them or us."
