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.

Justice League of America #137 (D'76) with the Justice Society and the heroes of Earth-S especially the Marvel Family versus King Kull (a preview for next month!) but the day was saved by Johnny Thunder!

I've always wondered about the art here. The spectator superheroes wear expressions of concern, but they're raising their hands as though they're cheering on a high school sporting event.

Well, they didn't get their money's worth, let me tell you!!

Jason and the Argonauts

The Bride of Jungle Jimmy

Heh. I bought that one and read it for the first time just a few months ago.

Here's a "Joker" cover.

The Joker made several appearances in Justice League of America but only made the cover twice with #34 and #136 (and that was the Earth-Two Grinning Ghoul). But he really hurt the League in #77 both emotionally and geographically!
