Comic Cavalcade #14

Comic Calvalcade was another DC anthology title that came out in the early 1940's. This particular book featured Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and The Flash who shared silly adventures on every cover. I bet all the super villains wouldn't be so concerned with these three if they saw them spinning in circles wearing roller skates. Ah, the innocence of the 40's! I love this cover for so many reasons. I don't think the publishers today would ever have their major heroes doing stuff like this. It's great. In addition to the main three, this issue also contained tales of Johnny Everyman, Hop Harrigan, and Sargon The Sorcerer. Cover by E.E. Hibbard, who was the artist of The Flash at the time. Cover dated April/May, 1946.

This is one of my favorite silly Golden Age covers!
