"In Brightest Day"

Gary Mitchell, a reader of this blog and an independent musician, has written a pretty cool song he hopes will get noticed by the producers of the new Green Lantern movie which is coming out next year. He put together a video showcasing the song so check it out.



Good luck Gary!

1977 DC Calendar



There are more wonderful images in the 1977 DC Calendar. Each month features the best artists DC had to offer at the time. Here are a few of my favorites.

May features this great pinup by the quintessential Superman artist Curt Swan.



June showcases another wonderful Aquaman piece by the one and only Jim Aparo.



July offers us this stunning Joe Kubert Hawkman.



And finally August offers us a Justice Society pinup by the great Wally Wood.



Unfortunately my scanner couldn't quite get the entire drawings but the bulk of them are there. This is my favorite of the three calendars DC put out in the mid 70's and I'll post some more images from all three in the near future.

More 1978 DC Goodness

Here are a few more images from the 1978 DC calendar. First up is January featuring Batman by the late, great Dick Giordano.



February sports a great Flash action scene by the wonderful Irv Novick.



And March features that preeminent 70's team, Green Lantern and Green Arrow by the fantastic Mike Grell.



I can't get enough of these great calendars. I'll post more in the coming days.

1978 DC Calendar



I've decided to post some more pictures from my DC calendars from the late 1970's. The 1978 calendar has some fantastic art but there are two months that stand out for me. July featured a beautiful Curt Swan/Dan Adkins piece featuring the Man Of Steel.



And last but not least, this Jim Aparo Aquaman piece for April is one of my favorite pieces of art from him. It's just super.



I'll post some more pieces from this great calendar in the days ahead.
