Marvel 1981 Calendar August

It’s the start of a new year, time for a new calendar!

And as it turns out, calendar years occasionally repeat. For instance, 2015’s days and dates line up exactly with those of 1981. So, cartoonist Mark Anderson took his copy of a Marvel Comics 20th Anniversary calendar from 1981 and lovingly scanned and posted the pages online for all to use!

The 1981 calendar features beloved Marvel characters like Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, and others created by artists like Bill Sienkiewicz, Joe Sinnott, John Romita Jr., Frank Miller, George Perez, and more.

Superman by John Romita Jr

In news that was announced last week on DC Comics “All Access” webseries, we learned who the next creative team would be for Superman. Starting this Summer, DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns will be handling the writing, while on art will be long-time Marvel artist John Romita Jr.. Also on the book will be inker Klaus Janson, who has collaborated with Romita Jr. many times in the past.

This will mark one of the few times Romita Jr. has not worked for Marvel over his long and storied career and it will be his first work on a book solely published by DC. He did draw a Punisher/Batman crossover, as well as one of the titles in the Amalgam crossover, both of which were done in the 1990s.

Guest NCBD Picks by Blake Northcott

Rat Queens #3 cover by Roc Upchurch, Image ComicsRat Queens #3 (Image Comics – $3.50) returns this month, with two different covers by Roc Upchurch. And each cover, upon inspection, perfectly reflects the tone of the series.

Cover A depicts the titular quartet of hell-raising women doing what they do best: wreaking havoc. Creatures are stabbed, blood flies, and Hannah, the Elven mage, conjures a little magic to top it off. Cover B is more of a pin-up, but Violet – the hipster Dwarf – isn’t your stereotypical comic book pin-up model. She’s filthy, bloodstained, and beaten from her most recent brawl, with a nasty gash marking her left cheek. The look on her face says it all; it feels like a derisive message to the status quo, breaking through the fourth wall. “No, I’m not a sex kitten in a spandex outfit…I kick asses for a living. Deal with it.”

SDCC 2013: Kickass 2 panel banner

Kick-Ass 2 is coming out in about a month, but that doesn’t mean the film’s producers can’t get the word out to fans at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The director Jeff Wadlow, as well as the creators of the comic, Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. along with actors Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lindy Booth, Donald Faison, and John Leguizamo all appeared on the panel in Hall H today. And they brought some all-new footage with them.

Some of the footage from the film showed off Kick-Ass getting into better shape as well as revealing to his friend that he is the famous hero. Taylor-Johnson spoke about how both he and Chloe Grace-Moretz, who made an appearance at the beginning of the panel via satellite from a remote location, had both grown so much since the first movie, and how that affects the new movie.
