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.

Ghostbusters in Italy.

China (okay, okay... it's actually San Fancisco's Chinatown)...



Herbie went to Canada to get a new coat for Mom

We could post any number of covers involving this character, who lives in some version of Africa:

I notice that we've had 12 covers set somewhere in England and four in Scotland, but none from the other two nations of the United Kingdom.  Time to rectify that.

Torchwood was based in Wales (Cardiff, to be precise), and this cover even features a bilingual English/Welsh sign.

In this issue of The Punisher, Frank Castle goes to Northern Ireland (also, another flag cover).

Some version of Rome

Most of Justice League Europe learning how to speak French...in France!

Plus Major Disaster has been working out!

Then Captain Atom is writing in the wrong language!

I posted this last month, but it's well worth posting again.
