Ok, here's an idea for a fun contest. I post a section from a comic cover and you guys try and guess what cover it's from.Whoever guesses correctly, gets to post a portion of a cover themselves, and we all get to guess. It's not good form to post a very tiny part of the cover, as it makes the contest too difficult.

Here's my starter - a clue is that this particular cover (like all of mine) is from the Silver-Age.

The third cut is obvious Sheldon Moldoff Batman art, and your 1957 clue led me to Batman 107!

Hoot hoot! Hoy

This might help with the last cut.

Once the owl theme became apparent and we saw a cartoony octopus with a trash bin, I knew Woodsy Owl was involved. 

While I couldn't find an appropriate Wonder Woman cover, I did remember another Silver Age Owl Man.

Hoy,

This is really stretching things (and post Silver Age to boot) but here is a Wonder Woman cover with an owl, or more specifically Athena and her companion owl (lower right).  Maybe somewhere there is a better WW cover with Athena and her owl.  Bird Boy and Wonder Girl fighting a giant owl seems like it would have been a natural for the Silver Age.

Here is an image I found of WW with an owl.  I don't think it was ever used as a cover, but I could certainly be wrong on that point.

Here's a bunch of them.  Same theme, although one of them uses the theme in a very different way than the other seven.  All Silver Age.

No. 4 is Captain Atom #85. I found it through the artist and the hero's arm.

No. 6 is the first issue of Dell's Beany and Cecil.

The second cut is Green Lantern #1. (I know two of the others, too.)

I'm guessing the theme is "puppets" if that helps anyone. (It helped me recognize a third.)

I've been away for a few days so I'm late coming to this round. I would not have gotten the ones already discovered, but I immediately recognized these two. The first is a Flash cover that is a favorite of Mr. Silver Age, and the winged feet was the clue for Fantasy Masterpieces.

Those were the two I knew, plus this one (which, frankly, I'm surprised Hoy didn't peg as well).

I just read this a couple of months ago, so I should have recognized it right away. This occurred during the Puppet Master's chubby days, although it's more likely Gene Colan didn't have reference for the character.
