BANNED IN BROOKLYN
In 1962, at the height of the cold war, the Brooklyn-based Topps Chewing Gum Company released a set of trading cards that combined a classic, H.G. Wells-style alien invasion with the graphic atrocities of war. The result were the legendary Mars Attacks cards, and the reaction was immediate.
National uproar: Deemed too gruesome for innocent young minds, the cards were quickly suppressed.
But even as they disappeared from the market, their cult status grew. . . and grew. Finally, in 1995, Topps re-released the set, adding new--and equally gruesome--cards. The invasion began anew, leading to comic books, novels, a major motion picture deal (with Tim Burton directing), and other insidious means by which the Martian wave would spread across the land.
In War Dogs of the Golden Horde, the mayhem escalates to a global scale. Martian armies invade Mongolia--only to discover that the descendants of Genghis Khan are as fierce and warlike as the legendary conqueror. The merciless will win the day. The question is, who is more savage: Mongol or Martian?
