An Interview with Len Brown
A writer and author who was involved with the creation of the Topps Civil War News trading cards. This 1988 interview was conducted by "Paul" who at one time had the most comprehensive Civil War News site on the internet. His site has since disappeared. There is also a short article on how the Mars Attacks card series relates to The Civil War News series.

Bob Heffner's Battle! Homepage
The World War II Topps card set
Bob Heffner's Dinosaurs Attacks! Homepage
In 1988 there was a lot of interest in Dinosaurs and Topps thought another blood and guts series would be unusual enough to be successful again. But it never broke through as a card series in a big way. Just hard core collectors seemed to love them. The best Dinosaurs Attack! site (even if it _is_ mine).
The Non-Sport Update
This slick magazine is THE source for info about all types of non-sports cards and related topics. In-depth articles cover everything from the hottest new movie card sets to the classic sets of years gone by (including Mars Attacks!) to industry insights. A MUST for anyone who wants to keep up with the fascinating world of non-sports card collecting!

The Wrapper
The oldest non-sport trading card publication still in print. It was first published in 1978 by Les Davis, owner and editor. If you are a trading card buff of old or new non-sports cards, The Wrapper is the cheapest and most effective way to reach both dealers and hobbyist alike.
