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.

It's been a while since we last saw pirates on a beach.

Peter's last choice reminded me of this one...

The comic is from the 60s and I realize that's a mirror or compact or somesuch, but it looks very like a contemporary teen using her cellphone for the same purpose:

Tarzan liked "Crocodile Rock" but this is ridiculous!

Did you know that the Spanish for "Little Dot" is "Pil Dorita"?

And I think we can all agree that the Cap and Bucky are flying over a beach.

I was about to comment that, with Harley's skin colour, she really oughtn't be basking in the sun.  But then, I noticed that she has a tube labelled "SPF 100" on the cool box next to her.  So I guess she's covered.

There's no actual beach on this cover, but the special effects guys are doing their best!

Maybe more of a shoreline than a proper beach, but, hey, it’s Flipper.

A fight on the beach on Pitcairn's Island. This was the third book in the fictionalized trilogy that began with Mutiny on the Bounty. Pitcairn's Island was where the mutineers settled. Their descendants are still there.
