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.

Fantastic Fears #8, July 1953. Published by Farrell. Cover art by Robert Webb.

Femforce #169 from 2014.  I'm afraid that this comic is so modern that I know absolutely nothing about it.

"Fear-Fraught First Issue!" - A triple!

Flipper #1 (April 1966).  I enjoyed the television show, but I don't think I ever saw the comic book.

Fred Hembeck Destroys the Marvel Universe

Furrlough #52, 1994.

Fantastic Four #36: the debut of the Frightful Four AKA the Violet Villains!

Plus #178 which is my strongest memory of the group!

Before she was Aunt May, Sally Field had the super ability to fly.  Flying Nun #1 (it's a Collector's Issue!), 1968.

However, this wasn't her first foray into comic books.  Ms. Field also starred in Gidget. Gidget #1, 1966.

From Charlton, here's Freddy #15, from Aug 1958. Cover by Jon D'Agostino.  I love this cover but again, I'm at a loss to understand what is going on. Why is the young boy wearing a weird helmet?
