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.

That sure looks like Minnie to me. Is it Mickey in drag?

Minnie is Mickey in drag! Seriously, I couldn't see the bow, and the costume looked like button pants to me. I was working off a small image that I blew up.

If you want multiple Mickeys, this comic promises 300 of them!

Okay, so I botched the mouse post. How about a pair of pre-Crisis Terra-Men?

An invisible Richie Rich doppelgänger?

It's been a while since I posted a Beano cover.

"C'mon, I know he's popular but this is ridiculous! What's next? He'll want top billing? Wait! Are you kidding me??!!"

Li'l Abner and his dopplegangster Gat Garson...

Look alike sons

Oh, Zero Hour is good for dopplegangers.

(There's a "flip-side" image of that Man of Steel cover, too, but I can't find it to post.)

I couldn't find this woman on a comic cover, but I found a picture and a bio on Comic Vine.


CHARACTER » Janus appears in 17 issues.

The former dispatcher of the top 10 precinct. A woman with two faces from Grand Central (Precinct 1), a world where the Roman Empire never fell.

Same here...
