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.

Mister Mind's Earth-Two version of his Monster Society of Evil contained both the size-changing Mister Who (foe of Doctor Fate) and the monstrous Oom the Mighty who battled the Spectre!

With giants around there is always the danger of getting stepped on.



That Adventures of the Fly cover reminds me of this one...

More giant feet, in a variety of different footwear!

A reminder of forthcoming themes:

  • December 2020 - Snow and winter scenes (but excluding Christmas scenes, and cold-powered characters such as Captain Cold or Iceman)
  • January 2021 - Doppelgangers (in honour of Janus)

As for February, are we going ahead with Philip's suggestion of movie-based comics to tie in with the Oscars?  If so, should that mean covers of movie adaptation comics; covers set at the movies; covers that reference movies; or all of the above?  (Or even something else).

Another "Giant" issue featuring a character drawn giant-sized:

(I know it's perspective and a crystal ball, but still....)

Some more giant puppet masters

I'm glad THIS is "the magazine that respects your intelligence," unlike all those Brand Ecch comics that don't.

That was what the word "Adult" was supposed to mean instead of the popular misunderstanding of it.

I always thought this cover made it clear how big Giant-Man was and how tough the Hulk was.
