Get out the red/blue 3-D glasses (red on the left, blue on the right)...
...cause it's 3-D Week at all the RetroBlogs™!
Got your glasses on?
Here we go with the first 3-D comic book...
This tale was especially-designed for use as a 3-D story (unlike some comic tales that were adapted from 2-D to 3-D during the 1950s 3-D craze.)
In fact, this was the first 3-D comic.
And, it was a 2,000,000 plus-seller through two printings!
These days, most comics sell under 25,000 copies.
A comic selling 100,000 is cause for celebration!
Every company from DC, EC, and Atlas (Marvel's predecessor), to Harvey and Archie tried 3-D books, none lasted more than two issues.
But little St John, who did the first one also did the only ones that ran for three or four issues!

Support Small Business!
