A Cover a Day

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.

    • I posted this one on May 3rd.

  • Today's cover is from a book rather than a comic.


  • Everyone has their "Golden Age", and before the mid 1980s and the original Crisis On Infinite Earths is mine. There were some great stories and publishing formats at that time, The 100 page giants for 50 (all reprints) and 60 (new and old material with ads) cents. The Tabloid Treasuries, and of course the later Dollar Comics. One brand new, 64 page adventure special, akin to an annual, for a dollar. Compared to today's prices for even a "standard" comic book, readers and collectors alike definitely had it good back then.

    • Wow, they didn't stop at just using the name, "Captain Marvel," did they?
