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.

Sorry about the Forbidden Worlds repeat.  I think this one is new.

And this one

I just looked through the whole month.  I think I have 37 unduplicated covers left in my file. I did notice that I just posted a Wonder Woman cover that was a duplicate, so here is a replacement Wonder Woman cover, which I don’t think we have had yet.

An alternative cover for Angel & The Ape #1.  At least, I assume it's an alternative cover, since we've already posted the cover to A&tA #1 earlier this month.

Hank Pym appeared in Tales to Astonish #27 in what appeared to be a one-off story. He returned in #35 as Ant Man.  Gorilla-Man appeared in #28 and #30.  How different might Marvel’s early history be if (a) Gorilla-Man had followed in Hank Pym’s footsteps and become a superhero?

Judy the Chimp

And the breakout star of the MCU Phase 4:  Man-oo the Mighty. Who knows, it could happen.
