The 1987 2015 Marvel Age Calendar for Jovial January!

Hey, I forgot this at the beginning of January, so here it is, a wee bit late but as useful as soap nevertheless: your January calendar for the year 1987, straight from the pages of the late lamented hyperzine Marvel Age! How can that be useful, you're asking? (And that's a very good question.)

It's useful because, since calendar-makers are a cowardly and superstitious lot, they frequently re-use years over again, simply changing the calendar year! By a cosmic coincidence, 1987's calendar works perfectly in the year 2015! So just pull all your old copies of Marvel Age out of their longboxes, rip off the back covers, and...oh, wait, I see the inherent problem in that approach. Instead why not just check out right here where I'll be posting the 1987 Marvel Age Calendar all year long! Print 'em, cut 'em out, paste 'em on your wall, dig all the jokes about the New Universe, and don't forget to send birthday cards to all the creators listed every month!

2015: It's not just a good's the law!
