The 3-D Zone

 3DZO   (3-D Zone, 1986-1987)

ô and ©1987 Sparks Comics Company

(From the Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

The brainchild of Ray Zone, this series contains artwork from many of the greatest names in comics, including Basil Wolverton (#2), George Herriman (#5), Joe Kubert (#8), Bob Powell (#10) and Harvey Kurtzman (#15). Unfortunately the artwork has been doctored to be in 3-D. The original pencils and inks are in black, and red and green shadows have been added to create depth when the reader uses a pair of 3-D glasses. This process makes the pages difficult to read without the glasses, so if you canít see in 3-D (or indeed have no particular desire to experience the artwork in 3-D) then the title will have little interest for you. Zoneís handling of the process is first-rate but ultimately rather pointless. Since most of these stories were never intended for 3-D, the individual benefits are minimal. ~NF
