MARS ATTACKS: WAR DOGS OF THE GOLDEN HORDE - FIRST EDITION HARDCOVER -

WITH COLLECTORS CARDS INSIDE.

By Ray W. Murrill.

OVERVIEW: A novel released to coincide with the release of the Tim Burton movie of "Mars Attacks." This is all based on the 1962 Topps cards which caused an uproar on a national scale that were deemed to gruesome for innocent minds (gimme a break - it's what they needed!). This novel has the martians invading Mongolia... only to find that Genghis Kahn's descendents are a force to be reckoned with... er.. something like that. This book includes a special insert with 2 cards that can be removed (but are intact in the book) with art by Simon Bisley and Ken Steacy.

In 1962, at the height of the cold war, the Brooklyn-based Topps Chewing Gum Company released a set of trading cards that combined a classic, H.G. Wells-style alien invasion with the graphic atrocities of war. The result were the legendary Mars Attacks cards, and the reaction was immediate.
National uproar: Deemed too gruesome for innocent young minds, the cards were quickly suppressed. But even as they disappeared from the market, their cult status grew. . . and grew. Finally, in 1995, Topps re-released the set, adding new--and equally gruesome--cards. The invasion began anew, leading to comic books, novels, a major motion picture deal (with Tim Burton directing), and other insidious means by which the Martian wave would spread across the land.
In War Dogs of the Golden Horde, the mayhem escalates to a global scale. Martian armies invade Mongolia--only to discover that the descendants of Genghis Khan are as fierce and warlike as the legendary conqueror. The merciless will win the day. The question is, who is more savage: Mongol or Martian?

ill. Peter Scanlan. NY: Del Rey, 1996. First Edition. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Hard Cover. Fine / Fine. ISBN: 0-345-40496-3.
