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.

Nebulon, the menace that bought the Earth, had the Defenders fight the Justice League, caused Nighthawk to join the Defenders, was behind the Bozo Movement and was responsible for a second Avengers/Defenders War!

I've been offline since Monday (unavoidable). I see a lot of my most obvious choices (and many of my more obscure ones) have already been posted. Here's a Kirby.

Some 'night' covers from me.  Here's "Out Of The Night" #6 from ACG.

Werewolf by Night #11

Dead of Night #11.

Batman #239 "Silent Night--Deadly Night" An appropriate seasonal cover.

Two N covers from Will Eisner, Dropsie Avenue, the Neighborhood and The Name of the Game.

Note the gimmick used to get a #1 on the cover. But it was his first appearance.

Dave, your post on page 229 didn't work for some reason.

Cover for Nanny and the Professor (Dell, 1970 series) #1

Theme: "A World He NEVER Made!"


Thanks for letting me know.  This is weird.  On my computer Juliet Mills, Richard Long, and three children are smiling at me from the cover of Nanny and the Professor #1.  However, on my iPad, nothing, just like you are seeing.  Maybe it's some quirk in the system, but I've posted hundreds of covers from the Grand Comics Database before without this happening.  

I'm going to repost #1 and add #2 as my post for today.  Let's see if it works this time.

Did that work?
