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.

To start the day, here are three covers featuring Parnival Plunder, the Plunderer, If that's not enough (because his name is not covered featured), the second one also features the "Pounding Power of Prince Namor!"

How about saying that any Q or R cover is fine all month?

There are two matters up for a vote.

"If I may, how about designating March 1-7 for 'Q' and the rest of the month for 'R'?"

I say no. (I've already started gathering "Q" covers in my head.)

The vote stands at three in favor, one against.

The Torch cover that wasn't posted yet, Imps from Pandora's Box, followed by the rest of my Peril covers

"How about saying that any Q or R cover is fine all month?"

Sounds good to me.

This isn't a comic book cover?? Inconceivable!! 

Neither is this:

Here's another case of a crossover, Total Eclipse by Marv Wolfman and Bo Hampton in this case, leading e to a series I wasn't previously reading: Prowler.

The Prankster putting pennies in his ears! The fiend!

I started our "P" month with the debut of Ray Palmer (for no reason that I can discern) and I'm going to end the month with the first and only appearance of Peter Palmer, The Amazing Spider-Man.
