    This is the perfect way to kick off the Mars Attacks crossover. Powell and Beatty craft a near perfect Popeye story, plus it has the addition of Mars Attack to put it over the top. If you love Popeye, Mars Attacks, or just great retro storytelling and art this is one you must pick up. Mars is attacking IDW and it seems like it's going to be great. Read Full Review

This issue's variants feature Mars Attacks Opus and Mars Attacks Miss Fury (I have included a look at the Miss Fury cover but, sadly, the Opus cover was only made available to another website and those meanies watermarked their name on it but trust me, it's amazing and if your LCS has it then you must get it)! Ask your comic shop if they have them available and check back here next week for… Read Full Review

    Popeye battles Martians. It's fun, action packed and a very dense read, which I was not expecting. However, the Mars Attacks aspect feels too glossed over and it seemed like they could be any generic monster which I wasn't a fan of. This is a fun idea that was simply too light on the Mars Attacks influence for my tastes. A decent read, but perhaps a great one if you a fan of Popeye. Read Full Review
