Comic Book Newstand Time Machine
I post a lot of comic book related items on the SSS, but I am not a comic book collector or expert. I just think they are fun windows on the past. That being said, the site I recently found is neat, neat, neat, NEAT! On the Newstand section of Mike's Amazing World of Comics, you can enter any month and year going back to 1934, and it will generate a gallery of comic book covers that were available at that time.
