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.
