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 appearance of Dollman with a "Wanted" poster, but this time he's not the one who is wanted.  Incidentally, notice that Poison Ivy is also in this issue.  My, how she's changed!

What about 10,000 credits?

Thinking about it, $10,000 is an unrealistic reward in the 1870s-1880s. According to an inflation calculator I found, $10,000 in 1875 would be $231,000 today.

If you're talking about unrealistic rewards, what about $100,000,000,000,000,000?  How do you even say that amount of money?  "Ten to the seventeenth dollars"?

The Western comic was a natural for this type of cover:

Well, this must make Thanksgiving awkward!

Batman has been accused of murder quite often and it never affected his JLA status!

I totally forgot about this wonderful Nick Cardy cover until I came across it whilst scrolling through my Aquaman CBR collection.

And sometimes he's been wanted for quite different reasons.

 

So if they don't know who Batman is, how do they know he's single?

He's seriously into cosplay, lives in a basement and hangs out with a boy half his age. Yeah, I'm going with "probably single."
