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.

The Tick Summer 2019

A classic Kirby cover.

Life had other plans so am just now getting here for today, but my contribution is a title logo within the cover dialogue too.

The characters (and the readers) seem to accept those instances as part of every day life, but how would they react to comments like "Extra! All out action with the Huntress!" or "Approved by the Comics Code Authority"?

Hawkman and his logo find themselves in a tangle:

My very first Defenders.

The Logo as part of a statement! 

Jeff of Earth-J said:

DC once did a whole month of covers which incorporated the logo into the cover design.

Here are two covers from that month (February 2002).  There seems to be some rivalry going on between Robin and Superboy.

Another cover folded open. Did these ever show an actual page from inside?

Summer is most definitely behind us in this hemisphere:
