Mars Invades Venus pays homage to all those great 'B' science fiction movies of the 1950's and '60's but with a current adult spin.
Long ago, when the solar system was young, there was life! The life, though, existed on Mars and Venus! At that time, Mars was dying and so are the technologically advanced martians that live there. The leaders of the martian race look to the other inhabited planet in the solar system--Venus! The martian leaders devise a plan to not only save their race but find a new home in the process!
Venus is led by clans of vicious female warriors! Can they put aside their differences and defeat the tech-savvy martians together? Or will the martians see their plan come to fruition and change the face of Venus forever!
Mars Invades Venus is the brainchild of Canadian Writer/Artist Larry Nadolsky. The book has been edited and lettered by Mark Stanislawski, who publishes it under his Good Ideas Comics self-publishing banner.
The book weighs in at 56 black & white pages with a color cover. For this Kickstarter, these books will have 7 pin-up illustrations by Larry Nadolsky included within the book! After these copies sell out, further printings will NOT have these pin-ups included!
The book also comes with 2 covers; a more reserved Cheesecake cover and an adult Nude variant. You can choose which cover you'd like or both! Both covers and some preview pages are below. Of course, all nudity has been censored to appease the Kickstarter Overlords! :D
As an extra reward, we've added raw prints of the two covers! These are illustrations without the lettering and, like the covers, you'll have your choice of which print you'd like! There is an option where you can have both prints, as well! Just like the cover option!
As you'll notice from the reward tiers, we are not offering digital copies of the book because the whole reason for this Kickstarter is to get physical copies in YOUR hands! Funds are for printing physical copies, shipping supplies, postage and the prints. We've added a postage fee for any backers outside the US AND we've factored in Kickstarter fees ,as well!
If you like science fiction comics and are a huge fan of movies like Earth vs The Flying Saucers, It Conquered the World and Mars Needs Women then this book is for you!
And thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges
There are no risks in producing the book. The book is done and has been on sale in digital format for about a year now.
The challenge will be putting together all packets for mailing as this is our very first Kickstarter but I expect to meet the goal and have these books in everybody's hands by the date on this page. Obviously, everyone will be kept informed through Kickstarter updates.
