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.

Anyone know Jack Staff? I've never read the comic though, in its world, Staff has been super-heroing since the Victorian era without aging.

I do not know Jack Staff, but I do remember Union Jacks.

It was self-published during the b&w boom and was supposed to be three issues, IIRC. I really enjoyed the first issues, but unfortunately it was the last. My submission for today...

I always enjoyed Jack Staff.  It was “modern” but I definitely got a Silver Age vibe from it.  It benefited from being read in large chunks.

Three of a kind...

And there was a fourth one, as well!

What's the secret of the laughing fish

Another Wonder Woman question, another Joker (sort of) question.

Not a question per se but it combines the two previous covers.

Two goodies from the Atlas days

A second magnate launches today, accompanied by the youngest and oldest people to go into space (thus far).

Still no sign of these guys, though:
