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.

A cover for the 6th:

Characters wearing question marks from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

The cover I most wanted to post this month doesn't actually exist. I think it was an ad, actually, for a Dr. Blasphemy t-shirt. Why I didn't buy one when I had the chance I will never know. Here's is Dr. B's only cover appearance,

The Flash always seems to ask a lot of questions!

I was struggling a bit to find a romance cover covering this month's theme, until I came across this.  You don't hear many girls issuing this plea!

This was posted last month but it seems appropriate to post it again.

How about this one?

I remember seeing this in an in-house ad in some other, then slightly older DC comic and finding it rather unsettling. Of course, I was a pre-schooler (or maybe in kindergarten) at the time:

A unique question cover triptych.
