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.

@Jeff of Earth-J - I love that Brave & Bold #80 cover. It is superb! Is that a Neal Adams cover?

It is indeed.

The last issue of Hulk's original title. Steve Ditko inked himself on the cover and interior, according to GCD.

That was so Jack Kirby could start Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos!

From Hulk to HUNK. HUNK #10, March 1963 to be precise. Publisher was Charlton and cover art/inks was by Jon D'Agostino.

And from Hunks to HORRIFIC.  Horrific #9, Jan 1954, publisher Comic Media, cover art and inks by Don Heck.

True story: as a child, I pronounced "Hulk" as "Hunk" until I was at least ten!

The last of the Hawk & The Dove covers by Ditko. From H&D #3, Gil Kane took over, and did just as good a job.

[What I think of as] the companion piece to Hulk #168.

Black Hand's first appearance in the story "Half a Green Lantern is Better Than None"

Sweet Christmas! Did we all forget that Luke Cage's first book was titled Hero For Hire?
