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.

Since this is Heavy Metal, is it humping the spaceship?

An Alley Oop cover showing the time machine and two others showing time travel adventures.

Okay, I confess, this isn't a comic cover.  It's an actual photograph I took some years ago at Wookey Hole (no, not Wookie Hole!), Somerset, England.  But it fits with the theme, doesn't it?  March's "Cats" theme, too!

That cat looks exactly like our cat's brother, which disappeared about five years ago.

(I wonder how it got all the way to England?)

...and here's an Alley Oop cover showing dinosaurs. I have always loved that tagline: "The adventures of a time-traveling cavemen."



The scientist's name, BTW, is "Wunmug," Hamlin's take on "Einstein."

Flash and the Cosmic Treadmill.

Forget the time machine. Who wants to take the risk of projecting your whole self through time? Get the next best thing - a time telescope!

My visit to Wookey Hole was in 2007.  If it is your cat's brother, the photo has both the "Dinosaurs" and "Time Travel" parts of this month's theme covered!

For many years, Adam Beach tried to make a live-action Turok movie a reality. Announcements would be made, he was to star, and then it would be mired in development hell. Although the original character is something of a stereotype, Beach recalls him fondly because he was the only FN hero he knew in comics. He could read it and see a lead who looked like him:

It's raining dinos, Hallelujah! It's raining dinos...



A Flash cover that features both "Dinosaurs" and "Time Travel".
