    Zina Saunders - Mars Attacks #4 Cover Original Art (Topps, 1994). Like father, like daughter -- Zina Saunders, the talented daughter of renowned Mars Attacks card artist Norm Saunders, painted this awesome cover scene which also features a clever "tip of the baseball hat" to another bubblegum icon, Bazooka Joe. In an interview, Nina revealed a humorous anecdote about this cover, "I used to 'work' on his paintings that he was working on (without his knowledge). You know how little girls like to make fashion models. I would make long eyelashes on his women. I did it on the Mars Attacks cards. And years later, when I was in my twenties, I told my father that I used to do that. He said, 'Oh, Zina, I knew you did that.' I said, 'You did? What did you do? I can't imagine how PO-ed you must have been at me for doing that.' And he said, 'Oh, no, I'd just go back and fix it up.'" Looks like those private art lessons finally paid off for this chiller. This cover has an overall size of 13.25" x 19", and the art is in Excellent condition.
