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.

For my final "E," how about a double yolk of bad guys.  Egg Fu from Wonder Woman #158 (November 1965) and Egghead from Batman '66 # 16 (December 2014).

M last "E" is Kid Eternity, an under-rated Golden Age and one of my favorites!

Batman Earth One Volume 2

Starting off "F" month...

The Flash  #229: a Double Flash epic and one of my favorite 100 Pagers!

Ah April. Time for the letter "F".  Fab - there are a plethora of F's.  Here's my first - from Aug 1956 - Fighting Air Force #27.

And as The Baron points out (above), F means The Fantastic Four. Here's one of the earliest covers - the first where they sport their new uniforms.

Dell Four Color #1069, adapting the very good movie The FBI Story

Talking of Dell, they also published The FLINTSTONES.

Justice League #10, "The Fantastic Fingers of Felix Faust"

Firestorm the Nuclear Man #1 (Ma'78) was in my Christmas stocking when I was twelve!

Adventure #357. The Ghost of Ferro Lad.
