365 Days of DC House Ads, Day 198: Joan Jett Attacks!

House ad for Strange Adventures #220 (October 1969); printed in Teen Titans (1966 series) #23 (September-October 1969)
Ad designed and lettered by Gaspar Saladino

From the era when Strange Adventures was cover-billed as Adam Strange Advemtures, here’s Allana and Mister S. versus the Beast from the Runaway World. Run away! Run away!

And, since "The Beast from the Runaway World" was a reprint from Mystery in Space, that makes this not only a double-barreled cover-stravagnaza on tonight's 365 Days of DC House Ads but also a new rare sighting of a Same Story, Different Cover!

Which is not to be confused with The Beast from the Runaways World:

Or, indeed, The Beat from a Runaway World.
