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 don't actually know Tyrant. That's either one small tyrannosaurus or one honkin' big bird.

Shockingly the proposed Captain Comet/Tommy Tomorrow team-up book, Cliched Future Adventures, never materialized!

What's the matter?  Tyrannosaur got your tongue?

(I'm assuming that the bird is a Roc)

Any comment on these "Dinosaur" covers would appear to be entirely superfluous!

Is he pointing at her right boob because he doesn't think we can see it?

I figure this crypt is a kind of time machine.

I don't know why the "Isle of Hercules" would be a lost world, but I applaud the artist for depicting a sauropod with its tale stretched out behind, rather than dragging on the ground. Very forward-thinking.

(I realize it was probably that way to show the dino fleeing, but still)

Some strange looking dinosaurs




Can't believe we haven't seen the Dinobots yet!
