2nd Month, Feb. 2013 Retro Marvel Calender by dusty-abell 2nd Month, Feb. 2013 Retro Marvel Calender by dusty-abell
Ok, I can't stop, these are so much fun to put together! This is the second entry in my hopefully year long homage to the Marvel Calenders of my childhood, here's Feb. 2013 including a magnificent splash piece of the Thing by artist Mike McKone and various pin-ups, clip art and comic art by Neal Adams, Tom Palmer, Paul Smith, Bob Wiacek, Dave Johnson, Andrew Robinson, Michael Golden, Ron Frenz, Dave Cockrum, Bruce Timm, Walt Simonson, Jack Kirby, Chris Samnee & John Byrne!

I just got a message from Dave Cockrum's wife Paty on another site which made my day, she got a real kick out of this homage to the old Marvel calenders.......... mostly because SHE was the person who did all the production work putting together the original calenders over 35 years ago, without she mentioned the benifit of computers, cutting out artwork by hand and pasting up EVERYTHING.......good grief i can only imagine!!!!

Be sure to check out January's entry here- [link]

Don't forget to download the image for the best resolution possible if you print this off to put up on your wall!

And I think one of the best renditions of him I've ever seen, McKone killed on this drawing of Ben...........

No prob...I appreciate your attention to details. When doing these kinds of retro projects, it's all in the details. If it's not done perfectly then it's a fail. You did it perfectly. From the look, to the comments, to the art choices.

I can't believe that X-Men cover is 30 years old! Way to make me feel ancient.

You could have killed two inking-birds with one stone. Both me and Scott Williams were born on Jan 19th. :) lol! Just bustin' your chops, amigo. If you're ever so inclined to actually print any of these up, I'd gladly pay for one! You should do some sort of perpetual calendar version. Keep me' coming!
