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.

Ultimate Avengers #18 (though the cover says Ultimate Avengers 3, Issue 5): Captain America is a vampire!

Next issue, Cap has got better, but now Daredevil and Hulk are vampires!

More Marvel Monsters

As if Spidey doesn't have enough problems with Man-Wolf and Werewolf By Night!

The character vermin is a were-rat, but close enough.

...and this character, Oursonette, is a were-bear.

Note that Oursonette is not the protagonist of this comic.  The actual protagonist is comic book artist Al Zura (Alain Zurakowski), shown here at his drawing board, while she is a character he created for Canadian wartime black-and-white comics

Guess there's always room for one more 'Doo:

I still have a bunch of werewolf covers, I haven’t even bothered to look for vampires.

How many vampires did Marvel have? Enough to give them their own Handbook!

As I noted early on this month, there were a lot of Marvel comics cover-dated December 2010 that had vampire variant editions.  Here are two more that I find particularly striking.

Pop-culture monsters never really die. Eventually, they looped back to this tale and gave it a sequel:

No flame wars. No trolls. But a lot of really smart people.The Captain Comics Round Table tries to be the friendliest and most accurate comics website on the Internet.
