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 Girl from U.N.C.L.E. #1 (January 1967)

Another great Gotham Central cover

Gold Key Spotlight #10 with O.G. Whiz (1977)

The Phantom Zone #2 with the Zoners  being led by General Dru-Zod.

The after effects of Superman II had Zod portrayed as the leader of the Phantom Zone prisoners when previously it was usually Jax-Ur.

Galaxina #1, Published Dec 1991 by Aircel.

Superman #129 May 1959 The Ghost of Lois Lane!

I don't think we've had The Great Society Comic Book yet.

Asterix the Gaul

Gabby Hayes #58, June 1958, publisher Charlton, cover art Dick Giordano.

Gang World #5, October 1952, publisher Standard, cover pencils and inks by Nick Cardy.

The Great Grape Ape #1 (S'76) from Charlton Comics.

Thought it would have been by Marvel!

Though it would have fit right in with DC during the Silver Age!
