CultTVMan has posted a picture of the box art for the new Moebius Mars Attacks kit. I saw the kit at IPMS Nats last month and it looks great as does the box art. This is another Moebius kit I can't wait to get my hands on.

Here's a quote from Steve's website: "Art is by Earl Norem and the painting will be auctioned at the NY Comic Con in October."

That pic is about as exciting as Aurora's classic box art and I'll bet this will be a great kit! It goes without saying but I'll say it anyway 'Moebius Rules'!

As mentioned, the cover was done by Earl Norem, an incredibly prolific artist. His work was seen on hindreds of comic and adventure magazines, as well as "respectable" outlets like Readers Digest, Field and Stream, etc. What makes this cover a special treat is that Earl was one of the ORIGINAL artists for the Topps series! He is 88 years old, and still painting.

That's right...He painted covers for Marvel Comics books and magazines.
Wow I'd love to be able to go and bid on that painting!
