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.

The first appearance of The Watcher (no cover appearance yet)

Welcome Back, Kotter

I remember when this show deduted... or rather I don't. the next day it seemed all of my classmates saw it and were raving about it at recess. Although that made me regret not seeing it, I didn't start watching it the next week, though. I'm the kind of guy who likes to get in at the beginning, and if I miss it, I'll skip it. A few yeArs later I caught the movie on local TV and decided to watch the saitcom. I didn't miss much.

Early in its production Hammer's The Satanic Rites of Dracula was supposed to be called Dracula is Dead...and Well and Living in London. Wikipedia says this was a play on the name of a revue, Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris.
