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.

Second only to Giant-Size X-Men #1 in the "Most Important Marvel Comic of the 70s", Daredevil #158 began a new era of story-telling, regardless how you feel about Frank Miller now.

This is the worst cover that I've so far come across in my quest for gravestone covers.  What on earth is going on here?

Summer seems to be well and truly gone 'round here, but I did find a couple of haunted house covers that throw back to August's theme:

A great Steve Ditko cover with a haunted house. A Haunted cover re-purposed from a Many Ghosts of Dr Graves cover

This isn't exactly the most likely location for a haunted house.

Still, that would probably make it easier to haunt Space Knights.

Gold Key had some interesting haunted houses:

The house in the background must be haunted! Besides this guy lives in a cemetery! 

Love that "Spirit" cover. Never seen that one before.

My latest offering - I posted this earlier in the year, when we covered "people carrying people", but I make no apologies for posting it again, coz it's a great cover!

"Beware the creatures of the night - They have lawyers!"  I wonder if Wolff & Byrd have any connection to Wolfram & Hart?

I doo believe it's time for this gang to make an appearance:
