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.

For early 2021, how about issues numbered "21."

Covers with or introducing sidekicks?

Here's two rather similar werewolf covers.

Wouldn't a cannibal werewolf only eat other werewolves?

Looking closely at this cover:  why are there intestines coming out of the corpse’s neck?

I guess that depends.  Are werewolves and humans different species, or are werewolves just humans infected with lycanthropy?

Hmm.  Maybe they're what he was eating when he got beheaded?

In a lighter vein, here's Alfred E. von Neumann.

And here's a possible source for Alfred's fangs.

What I noticed was a tongue somehow in the neck and also in the severed head.

The Beyond #1 and #2, a werewolf followed by a vampire.

I miss Mr. Monster!

I mister Miss Monster!

Also, I think this is my last Scooby cover for the month, from the gang's time with Harvey Comics. Yeah, they better run... before Baby Huey gets them!

I interpret that as a loop of something as opposed to a tongue.  I guess  it could go either way.
