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.

George Washington yet again.

The legendary Marvel Team Up #74 (O'78) where Spidey meets The Not-Ready-For-Primetime-Players! It has never been reprinted so here's John Belushi tangling with the Silver Samurai!

Never reprinted but already posted! Still, the battle's fun to see.

We're now up to seven presidents (Washington, Lincoln, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Obama), and I've been searching for a second prime minister to go with Churchill.  I've found one, but I think it's fair to say that neither author, nor artist, nor protagonist of this comic were exactly a fan of Margaret Thatcher.

You want Margaret Thatcher...?

The commercial is amazing. I never saw it before.

To be honest, not really ;-)

She hasn't caused any problems in the last six years.

Theodore Roosevelt and an elephant point guns at Deadpool.

The making of showcases some interesting pre-CGI-era filmmaking:

Jerry Lewis, like Bob Hope, had a DC comic that lasted for years (starting as Martin and Lewis, of course). He met a number of DC superheroes along the way:

Wonder Woman was in her early 1970s de-powered, de-costumed period when she appeared:

Let’s add to the list of presidents.
