CAN IT BE POSSIBLE THAT IT'S MAY ALREADY?  Seriously, wasn't it January a minute ago?  Well, here is our continuation of tasty artwork from those classic Marvel and DC calendars of the 1970s.  And this time, of course, we're going to look at May.

The first pic is this lovely Barry Windsor-Smith illo of Conan the Barbarian from Marvel's 1975 calendar.

Next we have DC's 1976 calendar featuring Green Lantern and Green Arrow by the award-winning team of Neal Adams and Dick Giordano.

Marvel got into the Bicentennial business with their 1976 calendar showing Thor giving Ben Franklin a helping hand featuring superb art by the immortal John Buscema and Frank Giacoia.

DC's month of May for 1977 brings us a classic battle between Superman and Lex Luthor at the Washington Monument with art by Curt Swan.

The year 1978 finds the team of Batgirl and Robin duking it out with Plant Master and Poison Ivy with artwork by JLA artist extraordinaire Dick Dillin and Frank McLaughlin.
