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.

Josie & the Pussycats getting patriotic and groovy during the Bicentennial! 

Patriotic British super-heroes!

Union Jack.

The Beefeater.

It's very difficult for me to find comic covers depicting icons relating to countries such as Germany, Japan, China or Russia without finding negative looking covers. Perhaps that's just my jaded perspective. Anyway, after much soul-searching, I've opted for a cover with a Volkswagen on as a depiction of Germany, since it's the car I most associate with that country. Hopefully this is a more positive icon.

Two comic adaptations of what I understand to be a classic American novel, both showing the US flag.
