Open to trades for sketches as well
Just in case someone was going to take me up on this, these cards are no longer available. Made a trade for a sweet sketch

Very cool, Mark

If there's ever a Lovecraft set, you should definitely get on that

Sorry for the non-Invasion sidebar, but I've got a question for Alvin or I guess anyone who has the same-numbered cards from all three original Mars Attacks sets (1962, 1994, 2012).

I was comparing same-number cards between the 1994 set and the 2012 Heritage set. The artwork on the 2012 cards is sharper, but I'm curious which represents the truer reproduction.

Was there new scanning done for the 2012 cards? Or are do both the 1994 and 2012 sets use the same digital files but with some additional image manipulation (Unsharp Mask, maybe?) applied to the 2012?

Really interested in finding out which of the two sets is a more faithful reproduction...

What do you mean by faithful?

I think what you're seeing is simply better printers through the years. There were no new scans (to my knowledge) in 2012, nor any additional manipulation, digital or otherwise.

Hey all;

We're running a fun giveaway on the @IDWLIMITED twitter feed this weekend. Tweet us a pic of your Mars Attacks collection for a chance to win this signed Joe Jusko Comikaze exclusive.

Doesn't have to be IDW stuff, we'd love to see the new pulls you got from this TOPPS set or any other.

Its great having the sketch card artists contribute to the applicable threads, but things are getting a little out of hand. Advertising for your ebay auctions is not allowed in this section.

It is allowed here: Spam your eBay & COMC listings here! (Photobucket, Sportslots, etc.) - Blowout Cards Forums

You can also set up a sale thread here: NON-SPORTS SINGLES BUY/SELL/TRADE - Blowout Cards Forums
