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.

Three from World's Finest

A Golden Age cover

Clayface in the process of becoming a doppelganger

And the Composite Superman is a double doppelganger

That's it for me this month

If anyone has already posted this cover this month, then I apologise now.

And my last cover of the month. I can't see two faces, but I can certainly see the appropriate words.

Emerging from the surf to get February started:

Fun with film, movies and the Justice Society!

Sometimes adaptations get split over the course of a mini-series, as shown by the example below.

And of course, there are always critics.

When the subject of movies was first suggested, this was the first cover that came to mind for me.  Again a typical silver age cover - but I love it!

And seeing as it's the first of the month, I feel compelled to post two covers...

Just to be complete, here's Steve Rogers' opinion on Indiana Jones:

I never realized I didn't have all of Roger's review Phillip.

Given the way Google posts/offerings are, the one panel I shared was all I found online.

Thanks for the assist.
