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.

Two motorcycle covers from the same issue of Flash - the wonder of variant covers!

Who can forget the two-comic run of this masterpiece (issue #2 appeared during this thread's "beach" run):

Red Wolf was a weird series. Based on a modern-day hero first seen in Avengers #80, the initial issues were set in the Wild West then it was thrusted back to the present where its protagonist was supposedly a different guy than the Avengers version but then they were the same guy! And the book was quickly cancelled!

As I comb through the web, there seems to be a preponderance of attractive women coupled with thrusting motorbikes.Is this just coincidence?

Most likely, yeah.

What else would it be?
