2015/1981 Marvel Desktop Wallpaper Calendar
January 1st, 2015
Did you know calendars repeat occasionally? There’s a 28 year cycle
wherein certain years will begin on the same day of the week as other
years. (There’s a more detailed explanation here
.) For example, 2015 has the same days and dates
as the years 2009, 1998, 1987, 1981, 1970, etc… Neat, huh?
So while there’s a lot of nice 2015 calendars out there, I’m going a
little old school and using this 1981 Marvel Comics calendar instead.
And as long as I was scanning everything in, I thought I’d share them!
There’s some amazing work here: Bill Sienkiewicz, Joe Sinnott, John Romita Jr., Frank Miller, George Perez… WOW!
Click on the images below and you’ll get nice big 2560 x 1200 images
with both the top image page and the bottom calendar page. Feel free to
grab them and use them as some awesome desktop wallpapers.
Have a Marvelous 2015/1981!
70's artwork :: 1981 Marvel Calendar August: Perez Avengers Art

19 Avengers on an 18 inch by 17 inch single piece of artboard. Art has
almost no border. Produced for the 1981 Marvel Calendar (August plate)
and likely drawn late 1979 or early 1980. This was the first piece of
art I bought back in the early 90’s. A dealer had given me a call one
night and said he had just bought a collection and wanted to know if he
could come by and show me a few that were on my want list. The guy was
willing to drive out of his way before he started his 6 hour road trip
home to show me a few comics, so who was I to say no. He showed up at my
parents house at around 11 pm grabbed the books and a couple of other
items and brought them in. Well, one of the other items was this poster.
I was just about to start at university and was broke so I sat on the
fence about purchasing it for an hour while we talked comics and when he
finally got up to leave, I said to hell with it and spent the money I
didn’t have. And that’s my first piece of art. Would I trade it? I would
think about it for some sentimental favourites. It wouldn’t be easy to
let go of but if I could find work from those early books I used to pick
up off the racks at the corner store, I would consider it.
