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.

Since tomorrow is the last day of the month, did we decide that February would be covers showing real people and fictional characters together?

I assume this doesn't include the many TV show covers showing only TV actors.

The blank space behind the Invisible Girl's hand (to the left of Stan Lee) is where Jim Shooter ordered Jack Kirby to be removed.

The pinnacle!

Ok, so this is a splash page rather than a cover, but it's the first one that sprang to my mind when this month's cover genre was first mooted.

Supes did move in some rarefied circles:

For that matter, the initial post to this thread fits the new theme.

Too true, and I need absolutely no excuse to repost it, since I love it so much!

If you go back to my suggestion for February, it was directly inspired by the OP Candid Camera Cover.

Not a cover, but, hey:
