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.

Read the "mammoth exploits" of Bulletman, Bulletgirl, and an elephant!

Two Adventure Superboy covers, published close together 

A couple of covers with miniature elephants.

This may be the first month since we went off-letters that I will be unable to post a crossover cover on the last day. That was my second option (first long taken) for "elephant/adversaries working together" for the 30th. I'm not certain I'll be able to find a third!

Great miniphants, though!

Sun Runners was a mid-80s sci-fi book published by First Comics and then Eclipse (were those the days!) which features an elephant-like alien race!

Pacific Comics.

Another Baby Huey.

When I was in college, I had a (pretty obnoxious) roommate for a time who, when he found out I liked comic books, made fun of me for supposedly reading Baby Huey. At that time I had never even HEARD of Baby Huey! Jerk.

Forgive me, but I'm picturing someone saying this to a documentary camera. It pulls out on, "at that time, I had never even HEARD of Baby Huey," showing the speaker sitting in a room filled with the world's largest collection of Baby Huey comics and memorabilia.

I stand corrected!
