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 Will-O'-the-Wisp was one of Spidey's most mysterious foes and was much hyped up in his initial appearances as "Marvel's Newest Super-Star!", perhaps as their latest anti-hero but little was done with him and when he did reappear, he seemed less special than before winding up with the short-lived Outlaws!

John Byrne used to cite Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch as among his best work. I wonder if he still feels that way? (This cover is by Joe Staton.)

Like many other super-powered individuals, Wendy and Casper have lost their powers!
