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.

Romance covers seem to be severely underrepresented this month.

I think that the intent of that was not to have a month full of Tomb of Dracula and Werewolf by Night. This title hasn't appeared before.

I realize that posting this cover breaks one of the ground rules, but this "classic" is too good to pass up.

I'd hoped to find a harvest-appropriate cover for Thanksgiving (Canadian edition), but couldn't. So here's some covers for people who aren't satisfied with ordinary tales of vamps and lycanthropes:

Uh.... Happy Thanksgiving!

That's a BIG werewolf!  It's not Kryptonian, is it?

...and that's a BIG hand.  I can only assume that this finally reveals what really happened to Rita (Elasti-Girl) Farr after the Doom Patrol were killed at Codsville, Maine.

First appearance of Lar-On (get it?), the Werewolf of Krypton!

The best comic book vampire ever? Hmm...

Into each generation, a Betty is born:

It’s the 13th and we have yet to have an appearance of the little werewolf who lives at 1313 Mockingbird Lane, Eddie Munster.
