2014/1975 Marvel Desktop Wallpaper Calendar

1975 Marvel Calendar

Happy New Year!

Did you know calendars repeat periodically? Yep! Within a 28 year cycle a year will start on the same day of the week as previous years 3 times. (There’s a more detailed explanation here.) For example, 2014 has the same days and dates as the years 2003, 1997, 1986, 1975, 1969, etc…

So while there’s a ton of great 2014 calendars out there, I’m going a little retro and using this 1975 Marvel Comics calendar instead. And as long as I was scanning everything in, I thought I’d share them with you!

Click on the images below and you’ll get a nice big 2560 x 1200 image with both the top image page and the bottom calendar page. Feel free to grab them and use them as some super fun desktop wallpapers.

Have a Marvelous 2014/1975!

4 Tools Thor Has Used Besides A Hammer

It’s only a few more days until Thor: The Dark World comes out and I cannot wait to see him put the hammer down again. But did you know that over the years the God of Thunder has associated himself with all kinds of different tools? Prepare to journey into mystery:

Thor’s Telephone (1914)

1914 Thor Telephone Ad

A hammer is a great way to drive your point home. But there are times to hammer, and there are times to yammer. So when you need to talk out your differences with your mischievous half-brother, give him a call on your Bell telephone. (And don’t forget Frigga on All-Mother’s day.)

Thor’s Clothes/Dish Washer (1945)

1945 Thor Authomatic Washer Ad

I’m betting with all that fighting and gallivanting around that Thor’s cape gets dirty and stinky pretty quickly. Not to mention all the mugs and dishes from those Asgardian feasts! But who’s got room for two washers?! Thankfully Thor’s Automagic (that’s right, auto-magic) Washer makes short work of both tasks! I wonder if it has a Mjölnir setting.

Thor’s Electrical Inverter (1951)

1951 Thor Inverter Ad

We all know Thor can bring the lightning, but that’s a lot of power to control. It’s a good thing he’s got his electronically controlled inverter! Whether he needs to zap an alien army, or just recharge his cell phone, he can be sure his lightning is always just right.

Thor’s Satellite Launching Rocket (1961)

1961 Thor Rocket Ad

If you’re Heimdall you can see and hear just about everything. But if you’re like the rest of us, you can’t watch the game, check tomorrow’s weather, or text your Earth girlfriend without a few satellites orbiting overhead. But how do you get them up there? Why your Thor rocket of course. That’s right, Thor’s got rocketry covered too.

And if that’s not enough to tide you over, check out this PDF catalog of Thor tools! There’s drills, grinders, sanders, saws, and, of course hammers.

Avengers Coloring/Puzzle Book Asks You To Solve the Puzzle In Hulk’s Pants

So The Avengers comes out in just a few days and, if you’re like me, you can barely contain yourself. Need a way to keep yourself busy while you wait? Try this 1983 Marvel coloring/puzzle book!

Captain America, Hulk, Thor, and Iron Man are summoned by Blue Star to find the magic pencils and help him defeat Ashius to save the planet Fireball! But Ashius isn’t alone, you’ll also be fighting Red Skull, Rhino  and Loki!

Can you help the heroes touch their magic pencils together (I’m not kidding) in time to save Blue Star?
