I lived through the 3-D comic book craze of the early 1950s as Joe Kubert developed the process for St. John. One of the happiest moments my
father and I shared was when he brought home an advance copy of the first 3-D comic, Mighty Mouse, for me. After that I bought them all as they came out (and still have them) but never have I seen the art and 3-D look as fantastic as it does in Craig Yoe's new book. My son inherited my love of 3-D and now does 3-D and CGI as a supervisor at Dreamworks on the Kung Fu Panda and Monsters Vs Aliens movies. Do yourself a favor and get this book. It captures an age and time that will never come again.

I was looking forward to a book about 3-D comics, but this isn't the book. I would like to see a 3-D comic checklist, (even though I have my own) one should have been in this book. I love the 3-D lenticular cover, but the 3-D anaglyph reproductions in the book are not the best. If some how original source material could have been found, instead of grainy fifty+ year old comic book scans, it would have been a lot better. There are a couple errors in the text of the book, which I send to the author, but did not receive a reply - I would hope they could be corrected, if ever there is another printing.

Format: Hardcover
There is much to enjoy here in this new book. But I have three small disappointments. [1] This book repeated some stories (Tor, 3-D-Ts, Hidden Depths) that have appeared in Amazing 3-D by Hal Morgan and Dan Symmes (1982) at pg. 106-153. It's better to reprint rare comics that are not already available in any other books. [2] The stories at this book's end are not stereoscopic at all (in fact, it says "please remove your 3-D glasses"), and a waste of pages which would have been better reserved for real 3-D.

[3] There are distracting colored page numbers placed besides the 3-D panels. Maybe they were put there for design chic, but they subtly interfered with my involvement in the stories. (I whited them out, as there is no real need for page numbers in that section anyways, with no table of contents.)

Still, it's a book well worth seeing. I most liked the 3 Stooges, Stunt Girl, and The Diver.

Who doesnt like 3-D comics?!? Fantastic reproductions and in most better than the originals, I know because I've collected a few of these 50's comics. What I love best is that I can re-read them as much as I want without damaging my original copies! Excellent job of binding and great paper - glasses included.
Nuff said!
