Transformers: Mars Attacks Crossover
Published on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 by

It is no secret that TheComixVerse are fans of IDW, especially their work with the licensed properties that we knew and loved as kids: G.I. Joe, Transformers, and the rest. We’ve reviewed a lot of IDW books over the past several years. One that split our opinion was the Infestation Crossovers. Now, Mars Attacks!Initially I was not a fan of the crossover event that was either Infestation. Troy appreciated the crossovers but seemed to prefer the original titles that followed the first event into a new IDW set of characters.  I’ve grown to appreciate the Infestation titles, primarily because they did not force changes to the main on-going story lines of any of the touched titles: Star Trek, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghost Busters, G.I. Joe, and Transformers.

Infestation pitted familiar heroes against iconic villains. Personally, I think the Chuthulu based villain was more imaginative and interesting than the earlier inter-demensional Infestation. Perhaps that is because the second baddie isn’t used as often as vampires and zombies in popular culture. Although every time I say or write that someone points out the Ood from Dr. Who or other Chuthulu-esque characters. I did enjoy Boom!’s Darkwing Duck Duckthulu version in other comic uses.

Now Mars Attacks is another fun crossover potential in the same vein of Infestation but with plenty of fun packed in.

Mars Attacks is a fun property unto itself. Watching the Autobots finally be victorious over the Decipticons, only to then have another invading army show up and outgun them is a fun concept. This is a  must read comic. Perhaps it isn’t as classy as IDW’s other fancy Transformer comic, but it may be just as much fun.

While waiting for green aliens versus robots, don’t forget Ghost Busters and the other titles to be attacked by Mars.

Something even stranger is in the neighborhood when the restless spirits of some merciless Martians are stirred from their slumber to attack again! It’s up to the REAL Ghostbusters to save New Jersey from this angry red threat. Well…  if they must.

Ghost Busters were attacked by Mars on Jan 16th.
