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.

Another Giant Superman or Supermen?

A fairy tale I've never heard of

Tales of the Unexpected and Strange Adventures featured more than their fair share of larger creatures.

Two more giant robots.

The FF might consider bugging out about now:

And why would this robot's alien master put an easily-accessible control panel on his chest? Is our intrepid hero thinking, "if I can just reach around and punch a few buttons..." Or does it require a passcode?

Biotron eventually became a giant robot (relatively speaking)...

Baron Karza is no bigger than the other Micronauts, but he is depicted as a giant here.

This "giant" here is Nightcrawler.

(I've been reading a lot of Micronauts lately.)

Inferiority complex? What inferiority complex?
