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.

One of Dell's "Movie Classics," The Horse Soldiers.

In their debut in Adventure Comics #324, they were called the Legion of Super-Outlaws but afterwards when the truth was revealed, they were the Heroes of Lallor!

Hawkgirl never looked sexier than when drawn by Howard Chaykin.

Hugo Strange

Cheese n' crackers! No one's brought up Hellcat yet?

Very few characters have had the roller coaster ride that Patsy Walker went through in her comic book existence. From comedy to melodrama to action to devastation to depravity to death and back through them all again at some point!

And now Patsy's on the Netflix shows (not as Hellcat).

"Whosoever Harms the Hulk"

Supernatural Thrillers #6 (N'73) featured the Headless Horseman but it wasn't an adaptation of Washington Irving's story. It was set in modern times with the Galloping Ghost as a spectral avenger, something that would be incorporated into the Ghost Rider series.

A great She-Hulk cover

From Harvey Comics, Hanna-Barbera Giant-Size
