I was looking through some old comics when I thought of a new game. I call it Three of a Kind. Here's my first entry.

Well played, sir!

Three covers, from 1953, 1961 and 1988.  I do love Aquaman's pose on the JLA cover!

Those are a great connection. Nice job, Peter.

Dave:  That took some research!

Wot?  No mention of Big Eggo, the very first cover star of The Beano?

(Though perhaps it is better to forget a cover with that caricature on its masthead). 

I've heard of infinity covers, chess covers, injury to eye covers, headlight covers, women in jep and many, many others bases for collections. This is the first inkling I've had that there could be an Ostrich cover collection out there.

This thread sometimes truly boggles my mind, both for the cover combinations and that somebody knows of them!

Those weren't just ostrich covers, but "people riding ostriches" cover.  Oh, here are three more.

Years ago I was watching preparation for an ostrich race. One of the ostriches was angry and uncooperative. It kicked its prospective rider in the chest and he flew several feet into a wall. He apparently wasn't injured but the audience was suitably impressed.

I should have realised that!

If I had, it probably wouldn't have been possible to find a suitable Beano cover.  As the star of the strip, Big Eggo didn't tend to get ridden.  Congratulations on a delightful three-of-a-kind (twice)!

I guess I've just had my head in the sand about covers of this nature.

Wait, sorry? The door is where?
