The Grand Comic Book Database project is an attempt to collate every Comic Book cover from every publisher. They currently have scans of 200,000 Comic Book covers that you can browse through by title/publisher etc etc at:-

I’ve noticed recently more comic covers from other countries are starting to appear on the GCD but here is a cover they are unlikely to have. Red Comet 8 was published by Atlas Comics (no relation) in the UK in 1962. It contains black and white reprints of  stories from Fiction House’s Planet Comics from perhaps 10 years earlier. The cover however doesn’t seem to have been lifted from an issue of Planet Comics
