Spending 1986 With DC – Just Don’t Expect Meaningful Conversation

I’ve recently bought a bunch of back issues (the first series of Infinity, Inc if you’re interested) and have come across a back page ad for a wall poster calendar of 1986:

Calendar1

I’ve seen that ad loads of times in comics from 1985 and there’s always been one thing that’s bugged me about it:

Calendar2

Yep – the main, colour image of the Teen Titans charging or flying towards us. Not that I have anything against the Titans, but like I said, one thing just baffles me:

Calendar3

It’s the fact that Wonder Girl is speaking the month, initials of the days of the week and then every number from 1 to 31.

That makes no freaking sense whatsoever!

Isn’t this better:

Calendar4

There you go, DC of 1986, I’ve fixed that for you.

If you want to reprint it and send me a complimentary copy, please get in touch and I’ll send you my address.
