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.

Other characters may smash their logo.  Logo Lobo (of course!) uses his as a weapon!

Two consecutive issues of Teen Titans!

I thought the "Christmas Carol" issue was another one but I was wrong!

"Where do you poozers want I should put this logo?"

Apparently, they were trying to make Stilt-Man seem like a real threat.

My contribution for today. Batman and Robin must have REALLY liked the logo that issue.

Lee's Batman reminds me of...

As a pre-schooler trying to figure the lyrics to the Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure, the line "Aquaman, the bold and daring / king of the seven seas" always sounded like  "Aquaman, the Golden Dairy / King of the seven seas." This interpretation necessarily caused a great deal of confusion in my mind. Were I to open a small town dairy (admittedly, an unlikely scenario) I might call it "the Golden Dairy."

A much earlier example from Aquaman.

The producers of the German translation cheated with their version of the cover.
