AH, SEPTOBER HAS DAWNED ON US -- CRISP AND CLEAN  --  AND WE ALL KNOW JUST WHAT THAT WILL MEAN.  Yep, it's time once again for those wonderful pages from the 1970s calendars by DC and Marvel.

Firstly we have the Mighty Thor and his hoary host of Asgard from the Mighty Marvel calendar of 1975 drawn, it looks like to me, by Jack "King" Kirby and Joe Sinnott.

Secondly, from 1976 in DC's calendar we have Dick Giordano's portrait of Black Canary, Mary Marvel, Supergirl, Lois Lane and Hawkgirl.

Thirdly, also from 1976 but this time from Marvel's Bicentennial calendar we have. . . well just a cool bunch of heroes (Daredevil, Black Widow, Dr. Strange, Son of Satan, Power Man, Ghost Rider and Shang-Chi) as drawn by Sal Buscema.  It's looks real "Defendersy" but represents no official membership I'm aware of.

Fourfully from DC's 1977 monumental calendar we have The Flash trying to rescue his wife Iris from the clutches of Gorilla Grodd as drawn by Irv Novick.

Fifthly, DC's 1978 calendar has a Freedom Fighters battle scene most likely drawn by Don Heck.
