DC Super Friends: Joker's Joyride

Courtesy F.O.A.M. member extraordinaire Russell Burbage, here are some scans from yet another DC Super Friends tie-in book, "Joker's Joyride."

As you can guess, this book features Batman and Robin mostly, but Aquaman does appear in it, piloting his super-cool Aqua-Sub, no less:
He also shows up in the big group shot along with the rest of the Super Friends, helping put out some fires via a fire hydrant, a perfectly logical thing for a Sea King to do:
When the DC Super Friends action figure line was put out to pasture, I thought that meant the end of DCSF merchandising entirely. But I keep seeing more stuff come out--even after the cancellation of the comic book--so I guess the DCSF line is still thriving, at least in some ways.

Thank Neptune for that, and thanks Russell!

There are quite a few story books out there featuring the DCSF characters, but this and the one with the Riddler are the only two I've seen that feature Aquaman. Did I already send you scans of the Riddler book, Rob? If not, I'll get on that tonight. :-)

The DC Super Friends line continues on in the Imaginext line, although it's mostly Batman-themed. And there is a new series of figures that is in-between the size of the original SF figures and Imaginext.
