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.

Hey guys! Cotton Flubbernote is coming to town!

Both these characters have ridden this month, but not with these specific covers:

I have a feeling someone might have posted this earlier. If, so, I apologise...

Here's another version of that Julie Wood cover.  It's also a foreign-language cover, but wouldn't really be eligible for December as it's neither Christmassy, nor a super-hero translated from English.

Two motorbike covers from ACG.

What the blazes has "Doc" invented?

From his position, it looks as though the motorcycle cop had been sitting astride his bike while facing backwards.  The UFO was probably trying to save him from having an accident.

Batman & Robin's love of motorcycle sidecars came long before the TV show!

Another Scout... another sidecar.

Welcome to the World of Wheels.
