There was no Mars Attacks Heritage in the mail for me today so we'll dive into another original from my original 1962 Mars Attaks set. This one is card #37 and titled the "Creeping Menace." Clearly anything from the 60's with "menace" in the title has some Soviet/communist "red menace" overtones. Is it any wonder the bug has giant red eyes?
Card #37 also begins a run of nine cards in which no actual green Martians are shown. From #37-45 humanity is ravaged by insane insect creatures until in card #46 when they begin their attack on Mars.
