BLACKHAWK in (almost) 3-D (1952)

The 3-D craze didn't hit the movies until 1953, and comics quickly jumped in. Along with real 3-D, comic book publishers experimented with some cheesy 3-D without glasses techniques (some of which you may have seen on this blog) that never quite did the job. But here, a whole year earlier, is a piece with many panels that almost make the grade. Most issues of Blackhawk from this period featured stories by both Reed Crandall and Bill Ward (doing his best Crandall impression). This one is uncredited, but looks to me like one of the Wards.

If only Lady Blackhawk were appearing during the Bill Ward years.
