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.

Here's another Yang.

From Young Love to Young Allies. Here's Bucky and Toro socking it to Hitler in issue 1 in the summer of 1941.

Young Allies of a more recent vintage.

The Adventures of Young Dr. Masters

The Fighting Yank, then and now!

He might have been a Captain America imitator but he had a good run. Plus he was the inspiration for Spirit of '76 who became Captain America II. 

Daredevil: Yellow

Yak Yak, A Pathology of Humor.  All Jack Davis.

The Yellow Kid was one of the earliest comic strip characters, starting in 1894. Instead of word balloons, he "spoke" via his yellow night-shirt.

He makes an appearance in Runaways #27!

Marvel's version of a racist "Yellow Peril" character (before they had the rights to Fu Manchu), and a cheesecake look at the Fighting Yank :

It would be more racist if the hero, Jimmy Woo, wasn't also Chinese.
