Ok, how about this for an idea.  We take it in turns to post a favourite (British spelling) comic cover every day.  This went really well on the comic fan website that I used to frequent.  What we tried to do was find a theme or subject and follow that, until we all got bored with that theme.  I'd like to propose a theme of letters of the alphabet. So, for the remainder of October (only 5 days) and all of November, we post comic cover pictures associated with the letter "A".  Then in December, we post covers pertaining to the letter "B".  The association to the letter can be as tenuous as you want it to be. For example I could post a cover from "Adventure Comics" or "Amazing Spider Man".  However Spider Man covers can also be posted when we're on the letter "S".  Adventure Comic covers could also be posted when we're on the letter "L" if they depict the Legion of Super Heroes.  So, no real hard, fast rules - in fact the cleverer the interpretation of the letter, the better, as far as I'm concerned.

And it's not written in stone that we have to post a cover every day. There may be some days when no cover gets posted. There's nothing wrong with this, it just demonstrates that we all have lives to lead.

If everyone's in agreement I'd like to kick this off with one of my favourite Action Comic covers, from January 1967. Curt Swan really excelled himself here.

The Main Man on an Earth-bike!

I've been checking on which of DC's heroines and villainesses have appeared on motorbikes.  We've seen Batgirl, Catwoman, Black Canary, Huntress, Wonder Woman, Barda, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Lois Lane.

Here's one we've not seen before: Zatanna.

And speaking of Harley and Ivy...

I don't think this one's been posted

Here's a retro-Timely Cover:

Third time's the charm...

I’ve started down a path, I guess I’ll keep going.  Here is a GHI set of covers.  Again, I hope none of these have been posted already.

More Golden Age Goodness!

I'm pushing the boundaries of the theme of the month with this set of covers.

The first cover shows ordinary (non-motorised) bicycles.  However, one of the riders seems to be a robot, so with a stretch of the imagination you might consider the robot to be the bike's motor, making it a sort-of motorbike.

The second cover shows what is definitely not a motorbike, but it is a customised Bat-bike.  We were discussing these earlier in the month, so I'm including this cover as being of related interest.

Sadly, there's no excuse whatever for including this final cover.  But I like it a lot, so I'm posting it anyway.

I detest the show, but it has great visual style, which this cover kinda captures:
