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 Sinister Six

More scarecrows

Are we still doing Scarecrows? All right.

Not "Batman Vs Scarecrow" but "Batman turns into a Scarecrow"!

From Gold Key - The Space Family Robinson!

When I started reading comics regularly in 1973-74, I loved finding those late 60s/early 70s "Giant" DC books and Superman #222 (Ja'70) was a big favorite with the Action Ace's "Secret Family"!

There was one of the best Imaginary stories with "The Sons of Superman!", "The Sweetheart Superman Forgot!", "The Mystery of Superboy's Sister!" and "Superman's Lost Brother!" which would be of interest to Legion fans!

Premier issue of The Silver Surfer - I remember buying this - and devouring every word...

My Atlas "S" is Scorpion, both the Chaykin original and the super-hero revision.

Blood on the plough....

We could spend forever discussing the oddities of this cover.

Showcase features a Space Ranger...

While this space-themed Showcase (I recently bought this one) predates Mos Eisley.

Strange Tales #1(JUN51)-pre-Code

and Strange Tales #35(APR55)-first Code approved issue. Note how large the seal is.
