Comments

During the Golden Age most publishers produced anthology titles that showcased a variety of their characters, usually with one star—such as Green Lantern in All-American Comics or Wonder Woman in Sensation Comics. Comic Cavalcade, however, featured both those star characters as well as the Flash.

Initially published quarterly, the title went bi-monthly beginning with #14. It was revamped completely with #30 becoming a funny-animal humour book when superheroes faded from popularity in the post-war era.

Synopsis

Wonder Woman captures Mr. Kipp, a delicatessen owner and fifth columnist and as a result also captures a group of German spies disguised as fishermen disabling their U-Boat and preventing them destroying the Salem shipyards. She also rescues Tommy Royden, an american youngster who has been taken captive by the Nazi Spies.
