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.

It's been quite some time since the last Jimmy Olsen motorbike cover.

And here's a pair of motorcyclists that I don't think we've seen at all yet this month.

Man, and I thought that this guy was inadequately dressed for biking!

Here's a milder biker cover from a European country:

Let’s see what we still have in the files.  A couple more covers with the White Angels

A war comic I don’t think we have had yet

One more cover with the Silver Age Black Hood

And I knew I ever got in a pinch I could always go with Cycletoons

I think that these covers all come from titles that haven't yet appeared this month.

By the way, we've agreed on subjects for the next two months.  December will foreign language covers (showing translated super-heroes or Christmas themes).  January will be playing cards (and other table-top forms of gambling, I think).

Is it time to start thinking about what will be the theme for February?

Do we go for the obvious and do explicitly Valentines/Cupid based covers?

Sounds like a great idea to me. I could post 100 of my favourite romance covers.

And what about March? How about. for March, we post covers with statues on?

It's nearly the end of the month so it's probably time to post this.
