It's not too late to espouse the virtues of a 2016 calendar -- in this case, the Don Post Monster Calendar for 2016. Introduced at Don Con (the Don Post monster mask convention last November), it is now available from several online retailers, here is a description from BlackSparrow:

"Created by Daniel Roebuck and Tammy Peralta, in conjunction with Dante Renta, this limited DON POST 2016 Monster Calendar pays tribute to the 1970s original mask designs that replaced the Universal Monsters on the 1966 Calendar. 2016 would be the 50th anniversary of the original Don Post Calendar. Using original 1970s Don Post masks that are foam-filled, the Roebuck-Peralta-Renta triumvirate spent long hours photographing and then adding Don Post, Jr.’s eyes to each image! Read Daniel Roebuck’s account of how the calendar was made here. This 9″ x 12″ calendar was originally a DON-CON exclusive."
Don Post masks and his famous 1966 mask calendar were a common sight in monster magazines and have become legendary as the quality monster mask of the time that every Monster Kid coveted.

Thanks for the old memories of Don Post Masks.
( The above pictured ones vary a bit from those of the late 70's.)
