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.

“'Vengeance!' Cries the Viper!”

...and the second Viper (formerly “Madame Hydra”).

The Viper Versus the Voice of the Voiceless!

I could do a week of "vengeance" covers. Here's “The Vengeance of the Thunder God!”

I saw the Fantastic Voyage Saturday morning cartoon show (in syndication) long before I saw the movie! Just for kicks, in my mind, Commander Kidd was a protégé of Nick Fury, Erica Lane was Margo Lane's granddaughter who had a mysterious benefactor, Guru possessed a fragment of the Ruby of Life and studied under the Ancient One and Busby Birdwell was related to the Cabots.

Heck, the starting point of the CMDF was the radioactive cloud from Incredible Shrinking Man!

Vengeance is Mine!”

A character called The Vacuum apparently removes Iron Jaw's ….. jaw.

More Voyages of Sinbad or Sindbad!

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad was the first film I saw (at the theatre) with no parental / older sibling supervision, just friends. I was nine, I think.

Meanwhile, in another corner of comicdom:

“'Vengeance' Cries the Copperhead!”

Anyone have any details about this Voyage of Sinbad?

Vengeance of the Ventura Freeway!”
