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.

How about a romance cover?

Okay, it's not real, but the original is almost close enough.

Egads, how often did this happen?

In can be easier for both twins to find romance when they have different tastes:

How does Luornu Durgo fit into this month’s theme?

How does Luornu Durgo fit into this month’s theme?

Triplicate Girl, meet Triplicate (Wonder) Woman.

November-December 1953:

November 1958:

Actually, this isn't the first time Steve Trevor has been set that sort of problem.  There are a lot of covers with Wonder Woman doppelgängers.

March-April 1950:

Richard Willis said:

Superman Red and Superman Blue, meet Spider-Man Red/Blue and Spider-Man Blue/Red.

Doom's body language is like, "I'm an enormous jerk, and I love it!"

Wonder Woman also had to contend with a “triplicate man”.

I always wondered about the Trigger Twins? Did one of them hide all the time? Didn't everyone know that they were twins? How did they get away with their act?
