Mars Attacks Popeye, or, Thimble Theatre presents E. C. Segar's Popeye in Mars Attacks Panic From the Sky! is Popeye's first official comic book crossover, the first of five standalone crossovers released by IDW Publishing as their Mars Attacks IDW event of January 2013.

Although Popeye had faced Martians before in the comics, this story involves a different kind of Martian invasion force: the large-brained, space-suited Mars Attacks aliens. Mars Attacks was originally a series of collectible trading cards from 1962, which has evolved into a franchise that would include a Tim Burton-directed film in 1996 and, since 2012, an ongoing comic series from IDW. This was complemented in 2013 with the Mars Attacks IDW crossover books, which include: Mars Attacks Popeye, Mars Attacks KISS, Mars Attacks the Real Ghostbusters, Mars Attacks the Transformers and Mars Attacks Zombies vs Robots.

The books also include faux covers for further (inexistent) crossovers, such as Mars Attacks Judge Dredd or Mars Attacks Spike (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame).

Plot

Publisher's Summary: "The weekly event of the year starts on the second day of the year!

How can Popeye, Alice the Goon, the Sea Hag the rest of the one-eyed sailor’s friends and foes possibly contend with this threat from beyond the stars?"
