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.

Talk about being out of your element:

On another thread we've been talking about The Spectre, so.....

Is...is he impaled on that trident??  Because it rather looks as if he is.

Talking of being out of place. the GCD summary for the following story says "Alexander Cabot III takes the Pussycats to Cabotopia, a hidden city in Antarctica, to stand trial for plagiarism".

Antarctica?  With polar bears?  Next they'll be finding penguins in the Arctic!

That Josie cover reminds me of this one from DragonLance.

Sorry about the double post.  The site hasn’t allowed me to edit or delete for about a week now.

How long has he been just lying there?

So if Aquaman is covered in the snow, a form of water, can he still survive and be strong? Or are these concepts ret-conned away?

I don't see why not!

Plus he's highly resistant to temperature changes so he shouldn't get cold!

I found this.  Aquaman (and Namor) are used to cold temperatures.  A blizzard would be colder, especially with the wind chill, but he should be able to handle cold temperatures better than an average person in the same situation.


Here's the Arctic but no penguins in sight.

ps - loved the Aquaman cover!
