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.

Tomahawk #118 (Sep-Oct 1968)

Texas Rangers in Action  Publisher Charlton Date: Sep 1967. Cover art - Pencils: Charles Nicholas (signed) | Inks: Vince Alascia (signed) 

General Luis Abajo is a downer

The Flintstones was an homage to Jackie Gleason's The Honeymooners. Similarly, the Top Cat show was an homage to Phil Silvers' Sgt Bilko show. Both were early prime time cartoon shows.

Adventure #372, Timber Wolf joins the LSH.  Neal Adams cover.

I LOVED DC's Tarzan with Joe Kubert at his finest! Especially enjoyed the 100 Pagers with reprints of Congo Bill, Rex the Wonder Dog and Detective Chimp!

I knew about the Terrible Trio of the Fox. the Shark and the Vulture but never read an actual comic with them.

All I know is that those masks look very uncomfortable!

I see your DC Tarzan, and raise you the Gold Key version, which introduced me to the character:

I think I read their second appearance but not the first. This cover is one of the ones I was going to post.
