Vampirella--and 1977--has come again

We're almost two months into 2011, but you can always use a calendar, can't you? It happens that this Warren calendar is still usable, because the dates in 1977 line up with this year.

It's almost like going back in time. Almost.

The calendar was scanned and put on line by DCP Wannabe. Thanks go to that person for making it available, so I can show it to you.
