Prepare Yourselves for the End


It’s that time of the year––the end of the year or…um…the beginning of a new year… Well, it’s all rather confusing, isn’t it? That is unless you have a brand-new calendar or two or three or four to set things right and to let you know exactly when you are! And so to help stem the tide of confusion, Bongo Comics is happy to provide you with a plethora of answers to all your time and event based needs.


Look no further than the 2011 Simpsons Fun Calendar with its series of classic moments from everyone’s favorite TV show, “The Simpsons,” to cover up that unsightly paint chip or tack hole where your autographed photo of Joe Jonas used to be, or why not hide that spaghetti sauce stain in the kitchen with the 2011 Futurama Wall Calendar, which harkens back to the Comedy Central hit “Futurama” and its four straight to DVD sci-fi-tastic movies. And move over Ziggy comic strips and Kindergartener art, the 2011 Simpsons Mini-calendar is the perfect fit for the front of any refrigerator.


And no desk, countertop, end table or flat surface is complete without the 2011 Simpsons Laugh-A-Day Daily Desk Calendar, loaded with head-scratching trivia that will keep you guessing all year round.


And for all Matt Groening aficionados, it is time for your annual pilgrimage to Hell and back with the 2011 Life in Hell Calendar, featuring Binky, Sheba, Bongo, and Akbar & Jeff.


Have your whole year planned in advance or just look forward to having a smile on your face every day with a collection of comic calendars from the good folks at Bongo!
