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’ve lost track of what we posted so far, but it is nearing the end of the month, so it’s time to start clearing out the files







Three "Statue" covers from comics I've never heard of.

One more Super-Statue!

As you say, nearing the end of the month, getting rid of the last few covers in my collection.   Here's a strange Sphinx.  And is this a man or a woman, approaching the Sphinx?

Here's a rather creepy take:

And bonus dark-costumed Spider-man:

We saw Yank and Doodle ("America's Fighting Twins") at the Statue of Liberty earlier in the month.  Here they are at the Lincoln Memorial.  I've also found a cover showing them at the Liberty Bell, but sadly no more statues.

There aren't many Romance covers with statues, but here's one that's rather sinister.

Another living statue attacking!

Screaming Statues

If this cover has been posted before I apologise unreservedly, but, in my defence, it's been a long month. I never, ever spent this much time surrounded by the same four walls!

Nothing says summer like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer on vacation at the Statue of Liberty. But why does he need a flying machine?

The statue remains with us in Futurama's era:

We have not yet exhausted Spider-man's appearances with Lady Liberty:
