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.

Whoops. Sorry 'bout that. (There's another JA you can use.)

While I'm sure there's other Archie time travel instances, for there were stories set with both the Riverdale ancestors and their descendants all over the place, I remember Jughead's Time Police.

Riverdale appears to have a long history with time-warping events, though I'm not entirely sure what Ronnie is walking on that second cover:

...and Bedrock is one big temporal anomaly.  A "modern stone-age family" with dinosaurs??

Time after time (after time)...

Good Boy!

Hawkeye checks the dental work on a T-Rex, which apparently is a transformed Captain America.

Herbie - time traveller

What I love about this cover is that Supes has been around so long that he actually imagines he's a human rather than a Kryptonian...

Does a dragon qualify as a dinosaur?

I'd have to say no, but I chose this one because it is part one of the "Cross-Time Caper."

Here's another Medieval time travel cover.
