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!!
Happy New Year!
Did you know calendars repeat periodically? Yep! Within a 28 year cycle a year will start on the same day of the week as previous years 3 times. (There’s a more detailed explanation here.) For example, 2014 has the same days and dates as the years 2003, 1997, 1986, 1975, 1969, etc…
So while there’s a ton of great 2014 calendars out there, I’m going a little retro and using this 1975 Marvel Comics calendar instead. And as long as I was scanning everything in, I thought I’d share them with you!
Click on the images below and you’ll get a nice big 2560 x 1200 image with both the top image page and the bottom calendar page. Feel free to grab them and use them as some super fun desktop wallpapers.
Have a Marvelous 2014/1975!
Feel free to grab them all now, but don’t worry, I’ll remind you here on the first of each month to download the new month’s wallpaper.
