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.

Red Ryder and Popeye. I infer that the Popeye cover is at night because.....ghosts.

Hey, will there be a separate "werewolf" subcategory for this month?

Did someone say we need more werewolves?

Even more werewolves

And an owl?!?

And a hawk (called Slasher, apparently)...

And a woodpecker!

Three different Captains, increasing the werewolf total by one.

Over the Moon with Starman! (The Will Payton version anyways!)

I wish I could remember the story behind this cover.

I'm convinced that the circle in the background on this cover is the moon. What else could it be?  Also, I love the cover.

It's a petri dish. Clint and Bobbie shrunk and are being attacked by coronaviruses!

Is Dracula doing an "accept no substitutes" type of ad for himself? Did he see that upstart from Collinsport as a serious threat to Drac, Inc.'s share of the vampire market? Did he fear the brand would be diluted by the future vampire craze?

And is this the sequel to their successful NORMAL CREEPING DEATH issue?
