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.

I bought this book in 2009. Great book - contains a number of artefacts - and shows our hero on the cover.

That's actually the cover of Justice Volume 1.

Getting near the end of the month, so just going to post some of my favourites between now and Thursday.

Here's Superman 139, featuring Supes with a tail. Cover by Curt Swan.

Superboy #151  "I just killed Lana Lang!"

Action Comics #370. "Superman's lost Century!"  Despite this not being an imaginary tale, this story did not make much impact on the whole Superman story.

Always front and center in the JLA (or maybe "front and a bit to the right").

The GCD tells us this story has never been reprinted in the US.

Superman #160 - When Superman Lost His Powers! 

Two Brainiac covers, his first appearance and a later cool cover
