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.

We've had Two Face, so from Dick Tracy here's

Multiple Phantom Blots

I've never read it, but it obviously fits this month's theme:

A couple more 


Two SF comics featuring machines that make doppelgängers.

Another manufactured doppelganger.

"Yes, Peggy!  I've created an exact duplicate of you -- and she will obey my orders!"

Oh, boy.  That is just horrific!

The Alien Wizard and his duplicates are, apparently, full of gas.

Also, that's some alien fashion sense.

That’s not really Professor X

With the exception of Tina, those aren’t the real Metal Men

And that’s not really The Hulk

The so-called "cosmic-powered Hulk" makes a return appearance in a Hulk/Thing slug-fest crossover between Hulk #350 and Fantastic Four #320, but it's appearance doesn't garner the cover spot.

"That’s not really Professor X"

So when the cover blurb reads, "Not a Hoax! Not a Dream! Not an Imaginary Tale!"... it's a hoax

Well, someone really did die, so I guess they might win on a technicality.

Aquaman with Quisp and doppelgänger.

Aquaman with Mera and doppelgänger (actually, I think that should be doppelgängerin).
