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.

Don't you just hate it when ants and all manner of creepy-crawlies turn up at your beach picnic?

Just 12 days to go to the end of August, and I still have over 20 covers to post! Go, me!

Susie should be kinder to Buzzy. Just look at how tense the poor guy is!

He's stiff as a board (so to speak).

What's even better than a day at the beach?  A day at the beach with free comics!

Dr. Spektor at the beach

Superman's not the best support for Aquaman at any age!

I'm hoping this cover hasn't yet been posted this month but I'm too tired to check.

Strangers in Paradise did a few beach covers:
