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.

A couple of wedding covers

I guess if we are going to have wedding covers, then we need this trio

...Noting that this cover shows Wonder Tot. and Wonder Girl, existing in contemporary times - Um, does this reflect the story accurately?  

Fantastic Four Annual #10 (1973) has on its cover something that Fantastic Four Annual #3 (1965), which it reprints, lacked: the actual wedding of Reed & Sue!

However both made the same mistake of adding the Sub-Mariner who was a no-show at the ceremony. I wonder if he RSVP-ed or sent a gift?

Also 35 cents for an annual? How long did that last?

Hmm.  Now where have I seen that Three Of A Kind before?

Inspired by the Wonder Woman cover where she marries a monster that you also posted, here are some further appearances of the Amazing Amazon spread over almost 70 years.

Wonder Woman, Romance Editor (from 1950).

Wonder Woman versus Eros, Cupid's equivalent from the Greek pantheon (1984):

Wonder Woman being hit by, presumably, Eros's or Cupid's arrow (2017)

...I only read one Dr. Pat story, many years ago, during DC's 48-page period. Have any ever been reprinted elsewhere?. 

It seems everyone gets married eventually - even The Phantom!

And The Sundance Kid!

as we probably all know, no-one (apart from Harley Quinn) appeared in more wedding covers than the Flash.

No 2 of 100

No 3 of 3, Funny, now I really look, I can't find hardly any more. Could've sworn there were dozens...

Not a wedding cover but a honeymoon!

Of course if Jay Garrick married Joan Williams in either 1949 when Flash Comics and All Flash ended or 1951 when All Star Comics went western, then neither Wildcat nor Hourman should be there but Hawkman. And the Atom should be in his second costume.

Nitpick, nitpick!
