TBT: Super Adventure Annual #9

This is the cover to another Australian SuperAdventure Annual book, a double (sometimes even triple)-length collection of DC stories reprinted for the Down Under market.

The Shrine has covered this series before (here and here), and while the insides are always faithful reprints of the original American comics, the covers are ten pounds of confusion stuffed into a five-pound bag: what, exactly, is going on here?

The Flash appears to be jitterbugging, while a mis-colored Green Arrow and Speedy chat with an even more mis-colored Aquaman! Meanwhile, Superman blithely takes off while Tommy Tomorrow(?) lurks in the background. And the whole scene seems to be taking place in a church, or maybe the United Nations.

All I know is, the Shrine wouldn't have it any other way!

Obviously, the Flash has vibrated to another strange parallel world and is desperately trying to get back to Earth-One.

Who is that in the foreground? Pete Ross?

I think it's Jimmy Olsen. They just miscolored him too!
