[T]his magazine has always been a pioneer. . . . It did so [published horror comics] only after extensive research into just what the public wanted . . . and we've gone in for similar research into the matter of 3-Dimension comics. We found that the usual type which required the use of cumbersome and artificial glasses was definitely hard to read. This . . . has been overcome in the new and astonishing system which we developed . . . TrueVision!

Adventures Into The Unknown # 51 ( 1954) letters column

ACG artist and writer, Harry Lazarus

With the release of the 3-dimensional motion picture Bwana Devil in 1952, 3-D became one of the best-remembered fads of the 1950s. Then as now, imitation was common in art and literature, and comic book publishers were quick to exploit the craze. Three Dimension Comics (featuring Mighty Mouse) was published in 1953 by St. John, and the floodgate for 3-D comics was thrown wide open.

The American Comics Group walked through that gate into a new dimension of publishing with Adventures Into The Unknown
