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.

Superman invades Quarac.

Quentin & Barnabas Collins.

Was either Barnabas or Quentin around in the first year?

Not in the first year of the TV show, no, but this six-issue mini-series tells the "origin" of the Collins family... bascally, the 1795 story... which still doesn't explain why Quentin is on the cover. He wasn't introduced until the 1897 story (well, first his ghost in the present day). Then, later in the series, another Quentin Collins was introduced in 1840. Then there were future versions and parallel relatity versions...

Mera, Queen of Atlantis #1 from last month! Just shows you if you wait long enough, everyone will get their own mini!

Something a little different for “Q”: two quadripartite superheroes.  One obviously wasn’t enough, so DC gave us two, both in 1965 cover dated comics.  But why was there never a team-up?  Just imagine that story.  Metamorpho and Ultra The Multi-Alien!

I know someone usually throws a band cover in around this time of the month, so I'd just like to include QUEEN'S GREATEST HITS #1 here and point out that Freddie Mercury is still very sorely missed.

Anthony Quinn as Quasimodo

Queen Hippolyta.

There was a time, post-Crisis, when Diana’s mother went back in time and served as the Golden Age Wonder Woman.

I. Q., DC's 'dumbest" genius!
