Trip to Mars, the Picture Book

Author: Michael D. Smith
Book: The Martian Marauders

Eleven-year-old Mickey Smith’s first attempt at what he called a novel, in the spring of 1964, was Trip to Mars, fifty-five penciled pages in a small yellow notebook. Starring Jack Commer and his three brothers, Trip to Mars outlined the horrors of a 2033 World War IV and the evacuation of Earth’s surviving population to Mars. The story is a childhood prequel to--and the inspiration for--The Martian Marauders and the entire Jack Commer series.
