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.

Perhaps the weirdest gun of all! And how can Doc even lift it since it's comprised of six compacted Metal Men?

A gun-themed story (part two of two) with art by the late, great Marshall Rogers.

This is a big gun, though not impractically so:

The series also features Easter Egg cameos of nearly every famous time-machine from pop SF.

Another "Hulk with a gun" (and another "three of a kind").

Why does Hulk need gun, when Hulk's strength is strongest weapon there is?

This is another Spider-Man gun-themed story. I remember liking it when I read it, but I no longer own it.

Big Guns, Death[something] and co-stars.

"Deathblow": (plus Grifter)

"Deathlok" (plus Siege)

"Death's Head" (plus Death's Head II):

Not the subtlest of covers, is it?

We could probably fill the entire month just with Rocket Raccoon! 

I had a vague notion of a "Thor-ish" cover in mind, but I thought it was a Thunderstrike. I'm pretty sure Thor #435 was the one I was thinking of. Actually, Thunderstrike has one that will fit the bill, too. 

Oh! That one reminds me...
