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.

G.I. Joe's Mutt and Junkyard! Mutt's the guy and usually it's him that needs the muzzle!

Casper goes through another solid object, but why the heck is he afraid of a dog?

Okay. He may not be the title star, but we have yet to see this pooch in April...

And the book Garfield and Odie are looking at in the first picture is actually the first issue of the title, so you have 4 for the "price" of three.

I had this Odie ready to go.

Considering how many are on the cover for issue 8, I think the world can handle more than one Odie Richard, even if Garfield can't.

Gives extra meaning to the term "anthropomorphic"...

Parapets:

Two completely unrelated comics, from two different publishers, featuring a pug.  They both have the same creator, Mike Norton, who has written "I really didn't want to be the 'pug guy' ", but also "while I still love making all kinds of comics, it turns out that I AM the 'pug guy' ".

"Mistress says K-9 qualifies for 'dog cover month' and Master agrees!"

Talking of K-9, here's another Liberty Meadows cover with Oscar the sausage/wiener dog.
