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.

One more Vigilante!

I love Dick Giordano covers.  They may not always be brilliantly drawn, but they're always full of action!

Get Right On with the Now Superhero!

This cover gets some kind of award for its copy. It's like the lovechild of Marvel bombast and the original Teen Titans.

They certainly faced a lot of bad guys on motor bikes in their early days.

A repeat performance by Stunt-Master

We've seen Jimmy Olsen as a punk motorcyclist, now from the same era, here's Lois doing pretty much the same thing.

Silver and Bronze Age Black Hood!

Remember he used to ride a robot-horse!

I have that comic!

More Supes and more motorbikes from me.

Sometimes, the most unexpected people turn up on motorbikes.

You really wouldn't expect to find Betty and Veronica as bikers.  I wonder who could have introduced them to the excitements of biking?
