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.

Another Owl and (Pussy)cat.

Due to having been to busy to post for more than a week earlier this month, I find myself with a backlog of "Origin" covers to post. Today is the last day of the month. I don't usually like to post two covers in a row (unless a day has passed), but I plan to paste an origin cover ever hour (or after someone else has posted, whichever comes first) throughout the rest of the day. Help me out by posting some "Origin" covers... chances are you will be helping me whittle down my list. I've gotten some mileage out of The Cat lately, so here's her's.I'll be back in an hour (or less).

Origin issues, I’ll see what I can do.

OK one more.  The exciting origin of Nukla.

Here are two different Captains America: the original and the "Captain America of the 1950s."

Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species:  A Graphic Adaptation

Another two-fer: the origins of the original Human Torch and Toro.

Adventure Comics #380: "The Amazing Space Odyssey of the Legion!" 

This was the last Legion story in Adventure as the series was relegated to being the backup in Action, which was always a mistake in my mind.

A western-themed two-fer.

Obsidian: the Origin.

Yet another Infinity Inc member treated horribly Post-Zero Hour!
