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.

Gotta start the month with Marvel's first "Hulk" (...continued June 2018).

Don't wanna worry you Jeff, but in June 2018, if we're all still here, we'll be posting covers starting with "T"! (Sad pedant here - I sat down and worked that out).

I'm hip, Steve... that's when the "Hulk" is rechristened Xemnu the Titan. (Or I could wait until the letter X, October 2018.) Here's a preview:

The Hulk's first guest appearance after his original title was cancelled.

Here's my Sgt. Fury cover for the month, issue #61 featuring Happy Sam Sawyer. I mean, Sir. 


Hawkman #9, September 1965, cover by Murphy Anderson.

Hand of Fate #9, Feb 1952, publisher Ace Magazines, cover Ken Rice.

First cover appearance of Hourman.  "Hourman, Hourman, does whatever an hour can..."

Amazing Spider-Man #238 and the first appearance of the Hobgoblin and the mystery that surrounded him!

I still have my original copy and yes, it does still have the tattoos!

Hoppy the Marvel Bunny #1 (1945)

Two Huntresses...
