    I am finding this one hard. And so many good covers already posted.

    I'm going with the MAYDAY! route. An early Joe Kubert. The best image i found had the bonus of including page 1 from the book, also by Kubert.

    There came a time when the name edhopper died! The final moment came with the fatal release of indescribable power--which tore every post that bore the name edhopper asunder--split it linto a new identity, and filled CBR with the blinding death flash of it's destruction! In the end there was a new user name, spinning slow and barren, clean of all that had gone before, adrift in the fading sounds of binary thunder...THEN----THERE WAS KIRBY101

    "Doves cry, are you going home alone?
    Squad flock, migrate for the summer
    Duck out for, for some hot weather
    Birds of prey and I'm shaking off my feather
    See the water foul, swing on a creeper
    Like starling dictating love on my speaker
    Hot flamingo, go bird emoji yo
    Monogamous like a swan, going with the flow"

    So agree... I can't give another meaning to the 1st of day of May, a day to remember the 1st May 1886 in Chicago and the even older eight-hour day movement!

    So I'll go with that 1906 cover for L''Assiette au Beurre, an illustrated French weekly satirical magazine . Technically not exactly a comic book, I know, but it fits the theme so well! Look at all the beautiful flowers on this allegory of workers' demand for :

    "8 hours of work, 8 hours of leisure and 8 hours of rest!"




    Of course one day those flowers will become cherries. Then it will be "The time of the cherries", "Le temps des cerises" (you can check the link for the meaning and the history of this very old (1866) French song)

    When we'll sing the time of the cherries
    And joyful nightingale and mocking blackbird
    Will all be in a festive mood.
    Beauties will have folly in the head
    and the lovers sun in the heart.
    When we'll sing the time of the cherries
    Whistle much better the mocking blackbird

    But it's so short the time of the cherries
    Where we both go pick while dreaming
    drop earrings...
    Love cherries with vermilion's robes
    Falling under the leaf in drops of blood
    But it is so short: the time of the cherries,
    Coral earrings we pick up while dreaming!

    When you'll be at the time of the cherries
    if you're scared of love sorrows:
    Avoid the beauties!
    I who do not fear the cruel sorrows
    I'll not live without suffering one day...

    When you'll be at the time of the cherries
    You too will have love sorrows!
    I'll always love the time of the cherries
    It's from that time that I keep in my heart
    An open wound!

    And Lady Fortune, being offered to me
    will never be able to ease my pain....
    I'll always love the time of the cherries
    And the memory I keep in my heart!



    You can find several versions of the song clicking on this link to the site where I found the English translation. .

    There is also a very nice version of it in the wonderful movie by Hayao Miyazaki Porco Rosso, you know, the one where the hero Porco Rosso is an "Italian World War I ex-fighter ace, now living as a freelance bounty hunter chasing "air pirates" in the Adriatic Sea. However, an unusual curse has transformed him into an anthropomorphic pig". (I quote wikipedia). He even says in it : "I'd much rather be a pig than a fascist". The singer is Gina, and they both have a complicated and very beautiful love story. You can watch the full scene here.

    Dance 'round the Maypole
    Dance 'round the Maypole
    Over the green fields
    And down to the hay
    Lift up your hearts
    And dance 'round the Maypole
    Run to your true love
    And dance all the day




    So there's flowers, dancing, a maypole, creepy puppets...

    Um, creepy puppets are a traditional part of spring celebrations, aren't they?

    @seismic-2, The Darknight Detective, Scott Taylor & Abe: You guys rock. Long Live International Solidarity!
    There are many ways to kill. One can stab a knife in your guts; take away your bread; deprive you of the cure for your illness; put you in a miserable housing; torture you to death with work; take you to war; etc.
    Only a few of these are prohibited in our country.
    - Berthold Brecht
