    Geekality - Julius Freeman Jul 17, 2012

    This book has so much pulp, it puts Tropicana to shame. This one issue has a little bit ofeverything, action, comedy, drama, and a ton of scifi to along with that. Not many writers can do thatas clever as John Layman. Aspiring writers, take notes. Usually, these franchise books aren't really thatgood and I try to stay away from them. Most of them don't do the franchise justice because writers onlyhave so much they can work with. This book on the other hand, is worth picking up. IDW did a great jobassembling the team of Layman and McCrea to produce a high octane book that is done extremely well. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Aubrey Douglas Apr 30, 2016

    This is an interesting story. Both the writing and art give you a bad feeling after you're done reading it. This isn't because they are bad, but because you just feel terrible for the characters involved. I would never want to live in a world such as this. Everyone involved in putting this together did their job in bringing to life a post apocalyptic universe where humans are not on top of the world. This may not be on the top of my list of books to read, but it is definitely in my list of top 10. Read Full Review

    John McCrea is an artist that simply is not around enough these days. His detailed style of cartooning is a great fit for this series. Martian attacks have never looked so good. There is a visceral, raw nature to his art that lends it self wonderfully to thing like giant robots attacking cities or a martian getting an American flag jammed through the side of his head. Every page looks awesome, even if the script is just throwing out random scene after random scene. Mars Attacks is an expertly drawn book that looks way better than it has any right to.

    Still going strong! Awesome splash pages, intelligent writing, and overall great story-telling. Good ol' fashioned alien fun.
