A craze that never caught on. Huh.

The title page of this titillating 3D comic book declares, “HERE IT IS!  The Ageless Story of Love In A New Dimension.” The comic comes with cheesy cardboard 3-D glasses that say on the tab, “hold in left hand.”  And presumably, you’d be holding the comic in your right hand.  So if the stories are as exciting as the title claims there’s not much you can do about it.  Thankfully, this is from 1953, before there was sex.

    I don’t remember 3-D comic books like this.

    I love “Closer to Life Stories In Closer to Life 3rd Dimension”. That was as close as I was getting in those days.

    The guy has a Robert Mitchum meets Jack Lord look to him.

    Is this a full-size comic book? It almost looks like it could be a little booklet.
