|Interesting choice for the cover of a 2016 calendar. Does it have a twofold meaning?|
I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into Books-A-Million at Edgewater Mall in Biloxi, MS, Saturday and saw a new Vintage DC Comics Calendar for 2016! Asgard Press made these calendars in the past for a few years. I always bought them because they were so awesome, but they haven't made them in a while. I hadn't even heard that they were going to start making them again for 2016. I always loved these calendars because they showed old DC Comics comic book covers.
The calendar cover is a comic book cover of Wonder Woman running for president. Right off the bat, I realized why that cover may have been picked: in 2016, Wonder Woman is going to be featured on the big screen for the first time ever in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and also in 2016, there may be a woman elected president for the first time! And I hope there is! (Clinton, anyway, not Fiorina.)
The cover used for May 2016 is of Hawkman #1, from 1964. I own that issue, and its one of my most valuable comics.
Oh, and this calendar is BIG, too, 11"x30" when opened up all the way. And I got it for 50% off the suggested retail price of $21.95. Calendar shopping is always best after Christmas, cause you can always get them for a lot of percentage points off!
