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.

Two more with Johnny and Jim.

Guess what these three have in common?

Was this supposed to go on the Three of a Kind thread?

Three alt Fanastic Four members:

The alt-earth Thing is Reed.
Hockey-loving Gaard is Johnny.
Counter-earth’s Brute is Reed.

Love that Doctor Who cover - never seen that before!

Mine's a bit more well known...

"Love that Doctor Who cover - never seen that before!"

That is Dave Gibbons (if you haven't pegged it).

Archie meets Archie. I think they use Dilton's time-travel device to come to the present and beat up the Archie from TV's Riverdale.

(In reality, it's a light romp where 2005 Archie somehow wanders back to original Archie's time. It was probably the first time since I was a kid that I bought a comic at a grocery store).

More FF.  That’s not Ben Grimm.
