    1. The only copyright I can find on the calendar says "c. 1966 Prestige Publications". There are ads to buy the calendar and other products from Prentice Enterprises.

  2. Artist Larry Byrd told me in 1972 that he never got paid for painting the cover of issue #4 (Invisible Man).

    1. Thanks for the history tidbit, Keith! It's one of my favorite covers!

  3. I have a 1966 Monster Calander by Prentice Enterprises. I would like to sell this, are you a buyer?

  4. I already have one, Jill. eBay is a good place to sell. If it still has the calendar part, it will be an easy sell.
