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.

Ultron Unleashed

A rare non-Avengers Ultron appearance!

The Unmasking of the Harlequin! (and Green Lantern!)

The Unmasking of Wonder Woman! (With Steve Trevor winning the Lois Lane Observation Award!)

The Unmasking of the Twin Sheriffs! (Did they share one salary?)

Unearthly Spectacular

(I think somebody used this for “T” but not for “U.”)

Here is a different version of that cover.

I really love this book, especially the story "The Long Wait."

My last two U's

“Tales of the Unexpected” (featuring the Spectre)

I'd like to start August off with Atlas/Seaboard's Planet of Vampires.

Okay, I know we're approaching NSFW for some people. "Foreskin Man" is a 100% serious, controversial, and bat-guano crazy superhero comic created to oppose circumcision and FGM. And this issue marks the first appearance of the African superhero, "Vulva Girl."

I was thrilled to see the Vision appear outside of The Avengers when Marvel Team Up #42 came out!
