About this project
Get a special Judge Dredd/Mars Attacks Crossover Collector Pack! Each comes with 20 cards, based on the Mars Attacks Judge Dredd comic published by IDW, including 1 creator autograph and 1 hand-drawn crossover sketch card. Each pack will also contain a stick of "mock" bubblegum for that classic, vintage trading card feel!
To pre-order, just add $50 to your existing pledge-- or if you haven't pledged, choose a reward level on the right (as low as $10) and add $50 by clicking "Manage my Pledge" (for a total of $60). If you want more than one, just tack an addition $50 onto your pledge for each one.
At the end of the campaign, we'll send you a form to fill out to tell us you wanted the Judge Dredd Collector Pack (and how many).
MARS ATTACKS IS BACK-ACK-ACK!
The cult favorite sci-fi trading card series returns with an all-new story!
In Mars Attacks: Occupation, we’ll see what happens when a race of hideous alien invaders conquers our world.
New artwork by some of today's hottest comics and sci-fi illustrators-- including Alex Horley, Dan Brereton, Greg Staples, Ed Repka and legendary veteran Bob Larkin-- will showcase everything you love about Mars Attacks. From amazing pulpy art to horrific scenes of alien mayhem, terrifying atrocities, over-the-top madness, and of course a healthy dose of blood and babes!
Take a look at the infographics below and choose your pledge level on the right. You can buy Mars Attacks: Occupation any way you want it: a few packs, a complete set, a box of cards, big master set bundle, and unique rewards like the chance to be painted into a card or to create one of the cards with our editors and artists!! You can also upgrade your pledge with additional boxes, binders or packs of special cards.
So dive in, pick your pledge, and be sure to join me in the comments section to talk about ways we can make it even better.

Risks and challenges
When it comes to fulfillment, every project has potential obstacles, and ours is no different. Every Topps card set involves many moving parts: from production and design, to business and marketing. For Mars Attacks we have the added necessity of working with more than a hundred freelance artists.
However, as a company with more than 75 years of experience delivering high quality collectibles, as well as a pool of well-respected, veteran artists at our disposal, we have added resources that most Kickstarters don't. We will be doing everything we can to both keep this project on-schedule, as well as deliver the best, highest quality product possible.
Our superstar illustrators are already working on new base card art, while our sketch artists are well underway drawing their allotment of cards. One of the many advantages of Kickstarter is that with a more flexible production we can give our artists even more time to produce their very best work-- for YOU!
Meanwhile our production partner (Sidekick Lab in Vermont) has already begun test printing the various card types, and has mapped out the printing and packing of the entire series to ensure we are ready to go as soon as the campaign concludes. Along with Sidekick, we have spent many months preparing for this campaign, costing out the printing, production, packing, shipping and creation of everything involved.
But whether issues arise or not, we plan to communicate to our backers throughout the entire process and update the status of our project in real time. We hope that in addition to reassuring you of our commitment to creating the best set possible, it will give you a unique insight into the behind-the-scenes making of a Topps card series!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
