Titan books has published a new collection of Joe Simon & Jack Kirby golden age comic book stories called Simon & Kirby Superheroes, which features an introduction by Neil Gaiman. Titan Publishing has kindly allowed us to present a complete story from the book.
In 1950, the Korean War whipped up fears of atomic warfare and communist
infiltration. Publishers geared up for the expected superhero rebirth, as
did Simon and Kirby. For Harvey Publications they produced Captain 3-D, an
experiment in multi-dimensional storytelling that rode the coattails of a
few adventurous movie studios. In order to read these comics, readers wore
special glasses with green and red lenses that gave the effect of characters
virtually leaping off the pages.
For this book, Captain 3-D has been restored for the first time ever to its
original art and in full-color, with the team's dynamic art figuratively
jumping off the page -- no special glasses required, thank you. But it was a
short-lived movie craze, and 3-D comics faded quickly.
Captain 3-D is also notable for some of the very first work a young Steve
Ditko produced in comics.
