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.

I think my post posted twice.  Well, I’ll see if I can edit the second one and add another cover with Nameless.

Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus: Negative Exposure
A 2004 Brian K. Vaughan 5-part miniseries.

The X-Men vs. Nimrod.  I know I read this but I can’t remember a thing about it.

Neal Adams contributed the redesign of Green Arrow's look in this comic.

The title obviously reflects another era, but this was one of a handful of comics from the Golden Age that tried to present non-white characters in an heroic light:

Batman #247 (F'73) was my FIRST ever Batman solo book! The Dark Knight had some great lines and great moments as he chases down a vicious murderer from Christmas to New Year's Day! 

Have a Happy New Year, everyone! And may Next Year bring you all joy, health and great comics, new and old!

I believe I started the “N” s with Noman, so I’ll end with a couple of Noman covers.  T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #15 by Gil Kane and #17 by Dan Adkins.  

Happy New Year to everyone.

I'll end the year and my N's with three underground comic covers.

Ocean Master is one of Aquaman's two greatest foes and is his half-brother!

(I wonder if he hangs out with Loki, Maximus, Kalibak, Thanos, Pluto, Lightning Lord, Kobra, Gemini and the other Evil Brothers!)

One of my favorite 70s titles:  The Occult Files of Dr. Spektor.  “Night of the Owl” (#22).

Happy New Year everyone.  Welcome to 2018.  A new year, a new month, a new letter. Here's my first 'O' - Thor #147 "The Wrath of Odin!"

First appearance of Doctor Octopus
