1978/2017 Spider-Man Calendar Desktop Wallpapers

1978 2017 Spiderman Calendar Cover Bonus

For the past few years I’ve been posting scans of old calendars where the dates line up with the current year, and 2017 is maybe my favorite so far: behold the 1978 Amazing Spider-Man calendar!

Each page has been lovingly scanned in and arranged to function as a computer desktop wallpaper (2560 x 1440) so you can enjoy them all year long. And there’s some unbelievable art here from Jack Kirby, John Romita, John Buscema and Gene Colan to name just a few.

Also this year I’ve included the covers, inside covers, and extra stuff that people generally ask me for.

Click on each image to get the larger image, download, and enjoy! And if you really like it, please spread the word. I’d appreciate it.

Happy 2017, everyone!!

Jack Kirby’s Lone Ranger (1971)

You’ve certainly heard about the new Lone Ranger movie coming out in just a few days. But did you know Jack Kirby drew the masked man for a Mattel card game back in 1971?

There’s not a lot of information out there on these, but according to Mark Evanier, Mattel hired Kirby who hired Mike Royer to do the inks. Enjoy:
