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.

Oh, and btw because of self-isolation, I'm now working from home as from Monday morning for the foreseeable future, so may get more time to post covers. How's everyone else coping?
This thread talks about how things are going in different parts of North and South America.

That's the second appearance this month of the statue on Nelson's column, but he's still a long way behind Liberty, I'm afraid. And here's another British comic cover, though sadly not with a well-known statue.
Specifically, January 2019. Was it really that long ago? Wow, time flies.

We've covered the Statue of Liberty, Nelson's Column, Rodin's Thinker and others, but there are famous statues all over the world. Unfortunately I can't find comic covers featuring them - but, just for a start, here's the famous statue of Mannekin Pis from Brussels.
Then there's the famous "Little Mermaid" statue in Copenhagen.
I'm still looking for a suitable representation of "Christ The Redeemer" in Rio de Janeiro.
