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 don’t think we’ve had this Scooby cover yet.

Not a comic book, but plenty of Cupids.

A couple of 1994 "Valentine's Day Special" comics from Dark Horse.

The Anti-Ladies' Man, Jughead Jones discovered to his dismay that aloofness can attract girls as much as repel them!

But really, did Betty flirt with the Capped Consumer? At least Ethel knew where she stood!

Supergirl gets married... but she can't even go to the trouble of dressing up!  She should've asked Lois to lend her a dress...

Statues in March, then. Will that idea be a bust?

Having listed all those suggestions, I've checked to see if any of my pending "Valentine" covers would pull double duty.  The best I can manage is this, which has a barely-visible cat in the bottom left.

I have a couple of "double duty" ones forthcoming.... We are doing statues next month, correct?

I'll save the final one for Saturday (unless someone beats me to it).

The last two Vicki Valentines

Does this count as bridging February and March?  It looks like a double wedding with statuettes on a stick (how weird).

My last one for February

One last Disney Valentine, still with no sign of Mickey.

The Eternal Triangle (or is it a Rectangle with Reggie?) has influenced comic book romances for eighty years! 

I dug up a Mickey and Minnie cover from 1936!

Congratulations, Richard!  I hoped someone would take my comment as a challenge, and find a Mickey Valentine.

Here's a Weird Alien Valentine - possibly even weirder than using statuettes on sticks to celebrate a wedding!
