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.

Back to western covers again.  That's twice within one year (issues 76 and 81, dated January and December 1960) that our hero was a wanted man.

The Ringo Kid had his own series (reprints/new stories/both?) that lasted 30 issues from 1970 to 1976. He teamed up with the Avengers in #147-148 along side his more famous contemporaries: the Two-Gun Kid, Rawhide Kid, Kid Colt and the Night Rider!

Then again, in 1970, the name "Ringo" was connected to someone a bit more famous!

At the time, my biggest question was "Who was the Ringo Kid?"

#5 in a series.

You mean this Ringo, right? ; )

Lorne Greene's Ringo was a big hit in the same year some other guy named Ringo had quite a few big hits, albeit with a little help from his friends.  Ok, maybe a lotta help!  But he was a Starr.

This won't end well...for them!

A "Wanted" and a "Missing" poster from the fertile imagination of Keith Giffen. 

Note that, on the second cover, it appears that not only is Ambush Bug missing, so are Krypto and Streaky.

A new cover for a reprint of a cover I posted earlier. Mr. X certainly has a loud jacket.  Maybe he should have gone with something a tad less noticeable if he wanted to elude capture.

Okay, which month gets "ape" covers?

Wanted posters of apes?  Okay, I can do that.
