Something very out of the ordinary this update with two pieces of vintage merchandise:
*DC: A beautifully-preserved vintage item, the Super DC Calendar from 1977 features all-new artwork from a roster of DC’s artistic super-stars – Neal Adams, Curt Swan, Joe Kubert, Wally Wood, Kurt Schaffenberger and more, with pages devoted to Wonder Woman, the Justice Society, the Justice League, Superman, Batman and all the others you’d expect. Highlight for Legion of Super-Heroes completists will be the centre double-page illustration of a Legion Vs. Fatal Five showdown! In a striking VF grade at £30.
*Marvel: From 1976, the Mighty Marvel Bicentennial Calendar features Marvel’s most famous characters in a plethora of patriotic situations; all the Marvel ‘big names’ are here, so fans of the Hulk, Spider-Man, Thor, FF, Avengers and – of course – Captain America will be well satisfied, but there’s also pages devoted to some outer fringes of the Marvel Universe, such as the cosmic heroes (Warlock, Silver Surfer, Captain Marvel), Marvel Monsters (Dracula, Werewolf by Night, Man-Thing), the Invaders, and the Black Panther. All-new illustrations by Brunner, Starlin, Kane, Romita, Buscema and more. Fine at £45.
