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 about time this guy showed up.

And, on a related note, here's a couple of covers from a long-running series whose every issue features motorbikes.

The last bike on earth?

I'm surprised those aren't hogs driving them.

Here are three very easy and laid-back riders...

When Black Canary joined the Justice League, she gained, besides her canary cry, a love of motorcycles but not on the covers of Bronze Age books for the most part!

Another Green Arrow/Black Canary cover with a motorcycle

I find it kind of surprising that, on these covers, it's Wonder Woman rather than Batgirl on the motorbike.

But...What heartbreaks awaits... the Biker's Girl?

And why does the biker on the cover of GIANT Young Love ride such a puny bike? Is the heartbreak that she learns he's really a circus clown?

Steel Wind was a cyborg cyclist who battled Ghost Rider a lot more than I thought she did!
