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.

Looking ahead to the next Avengers movie, here's Infinity Gauntlet.

A different Invaders (The Invaders #2 1968).

An early star of Quality's Smash Comics was Hugh Hazzard and Bozo the Iron Man (later simply Bozo the Robot). Actually Hugh controlled Bozo from within so he wasn't so much a robot as a suit of armor! He lasted from 1939 to 1943 and never joined the Freedom Fighters! *sigh*

Incredible Science Fiction, from EC and Wally Wood

The original Jack Kirby Insect Man of the Where Monsters Dwell reprint

Illustrerade Klassiker was published in Sweden between 1956 and 1976. A translation of Classics Illustrated, this issue featured H. G. Wells' The Time Machine'.

Google Translate tells me "berömda berättares bästa böcker"="famous storyteller's best books". I find the alliteration very pleasing.

Iron Man and Sub-Mariner #1-and-only

Cave Carson's two Brave & Bold stints were titled "Adventure Inside Earth"!

Ivanhoe (1963)

The first ever Image comic.
