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.

This should be my last "B" -- the only issue of The Blue Phantom.

Superman with the Baby  New Year!

Jim Lee provides more than you ever wanted to know about Batman's Boot.

Happy New Year, everyone!

I'm a little sheepish about being the first one, but I'll kick off January.

First Challengers of the Unknown.

I'm going though and "Atlas" phase, I admit it.

One of the first non-Code-approved titles since the mid-50s.

Happy New Year everyone! It's January so that means we're up to "C"!  I have plenty - here's Challengers of the Unknown #47.

And from April 1952 here's Chamber of Chills #7, a Harvey publication, with artwork by Al Avison. This particular cover was seen as fairly horrific by some and was referred to in Wertham's SOTI (on page 389).

First appearance of Catwoman in her own magazine, February 1989.
