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.

I was amazed by how many times Perry White appeared on covers! Was he that big of a draw? "Sales are down! Put Perry on the cover next issue!"

Man that cover was Action #278 was wordy! Let's give them the exposition right away!

More Perry White covers and trust me, there were a LOT to choose from!

Andy Panda was apparently more of a badass than we thought

Two western P's

I understand that the short-lived Pony Express was more grueling than exciting

Gay Purr-ee

Two Disney P's to finish off February

Project Pegasus

I know we've reached the last day of the month but we haven't even mentioned Parody covers yet! I must remedy that - here's one of my faves.

ps - I'm fine with that suggestion - that we devote March to "Q" and "R". Great idea.

I also thought this parody cover was great.  It's supposed to depict the X-Men action picture 30 seconds after the initial #1 cover.

Good thing we're at the end of the month... I'm starting to forget which ones we've used. I don't think anyone has posted Hercules - Prince of Power yet.

I'll sign off February with this great cover - Plop #13, a cover by Wally Wood.
