Reading Room ALIEN WORLDS "Collector's Item"

With eBay, Amazon, and others on the 'Net, it's hard for fans today to perceive when it was a real achievement to track down a... the final card in a set it took months to complete!
Written by Bruce Jones and illustrated with some kool pseudo-Mars Attacks! card graphics by Ken Steacy, this tale of trading cards and terror from Eclipse's anthology Alien Worlds #8 (1984) perfectly captures the obsessive-collector mindset all of us suffer from at one point or another during our FIAWOL (Fandom is a Way of Life) period.
