The vast majority of calandars are roughly 12" x 12", basically right in the middle between comics and comic prints. Modern comics are roughly 10.5" x 7" and most comic art prints are either 11x17 or 13x19. So again, size wise calandars are basically right inbetween comics and comic prints. I first started collecting comic calandars like 3 years ago with J. Scott Campbells Fairy Tale Fantasies calendars. I was really surprised at the overall quality. Given the advances we have seen in printing technology over the last 10+ years, calandars like these are now surprisingly high in quality. Dont get me wrong, calandars are definitely a step down from most art prints being produced, but they are still high enough in quality to make thier purchase worthwhile.
You have a couple options in regards to what to do with calendars like this. You can keep them exactly as they are, in which case they become like a really small soft cover art book, or you can take the calandar apart and cut away the actual calandar part, in which case they become like individual 12 x 12 art prints.Read more ›
For ERB Mars fans this looks like it's all we're going to get for the year 2014. Grab it while you can, you might even say it is closer to the correct iconography than we've yet had. It's OK, necessary perhaps if you are an ardent fan of the Mars novels, but we could hope for better. There was no 2013 ERB Mars calendar so I recommend this in the hope that we should support and be supported until someday an artist might try actually reading the novels to get his iconography right.
Since the 2012 release of the film John Carter there has been hope - or maybe just a fantasy of a hope - of a filmic future for the proper epic Edgar Rice Burroughs Mars novels, arguably one of the finest pulp fiction creations of a completely worked-out off-world civilization that has ever been written. To call it "pulp" is not meant to be a backhand compliment: there aren't any high literature creations of whole other worlds, either. Apparently the creation of planets is not something that serious writers take seriously. Though it had some components that were quite recognizable from the texts, the film John Carter was not canonic and it is anyone's guess as to whether its attempt improves the chances of a faithful ERB Mars sequence ever being made.
In 2012, the anniversary of ERB's first novel, A Princess of Mars, a Warlord of Mars calendar appeared; my Amazon review of that can be found here:
