Behold three classic tales of literary genius filtered through the cracked lens of the Mars Attacks universe! Herman Melville comes face-to-face with a Martian in a twisted take on Moby Dick! Mars High Command has in its sights a serum that brings out the worst in humanity in a transformative version of Jekyll & Hyde! A shipwrecked Martian finds himself marooned on a lonely island on planet Earth in a send-up of Robinson Crusoe!

    So overall it's something of a mixed bag (it would have been nice to see more separation between the stories - splash pages or some such), but lots of fun. Well worth checking out, whether or not you're a fan of the classics - or Classics Illustrated. Read Full Review

    The only issue I took with the final story was its pace, which feels like a slog unless you're in the right mood. It's well written though, and the art by Carlos Valenzuela works great for the island locale. Read Full Review

    Classics Obliterated is a great idea that ends up turning into more of a light snack than a full meal. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of Mars Attacks or any of the classics adapted herein, you might want to check this out, but otherwise this review will probably satisfy any curiosity you have and leave you with $7.99 in your pocket. On the whole, it seems a half-hearted knock-off of the recent Deadpool: Classics Killustrated, both in tone and design, but lacking in the same quality and inspiration. Read Full Review
