The New Year is almost upon us, which means it's time to throw out your 2014 calendars and start anew. If superheroes, villains, and gorgeous cosplaying women are your thing, the London-based AurumLight (Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz) photography studio's "Splash Heroes" calendar might just be the ticket for you. The stunning photos capture some of the most renowned ladies of the Marvel and DC universes with a dramatic paint-splash effect. The result is a stunning series of photos (which you can see in the gallery below, some are NSFW) that would look good on any comic fan's wall.

It's difficult to say which of the photos I like the best. Elektra is dramatic and a little risque, Batgirl is a vision in purple and yellow, the female Venom is rather surreal and scary, and I've always been a sucker for the Savage She-Hulk. The only major absence from this group for me is Harley Quinn...and maybe the Scarlet Witch. Other than that, it's hard to argue with AurumLight's choices for the 2015 calendar.

You can order the Splash Heroes calendar right here. The limited-edition calendars will be sent out in early January. Thanks to Talent House for the tip.
