Are you a pack rat? Ever discover some dusty swimsuit calendar or nostalgic Seattle SuperSonics schedule from previous years that actually line up? Well, here's something you may not know: there's an actual equation to figure out which years have the same monthly grid lineup (i.e. "Sunday January 11") in certain years. 2015 shares dates with 2009, 1998, 1981, and 1970, and since those decades have some awesomely different designs, pulling out an old calendar to stand in for 2015 will make you cooler than it sounds.
But if you're not a hoarder, most likely 2009, 1998, etc. are right where they belong: in a landfill. Luckily, Chicago-based cartoonist Mark Anderson has posted Marvel Comics' fan club calendar from 1981 in a series of high resolution scans. They're perfect to print off as your own calendar, or use on your desktop. In movies right now, it's Marvel's world, and the rest of us are just living in it. So we might as well live it out, day by day.
And there's some pretty great artwork (and calendar design) on display here from comic legends such as Bill Sienkiewicz, Joe Sinnott, John Romita Jr., and Frank Miller. The Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Fantastic-Four, Star Lord and Dr. Strange (set to get his first Marvel movie in 2016, portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch) all feature.
