3-D: WHACK! "3-D-t's"

What did people in the comics industry think of the 1950s 3-D fad?
I'd say this 1953 tale from the all-3-D first issue of WHACK! (St John's MAD comic clone) explains it pretty well.
(And, yes, you need those 3-D glasses!)
Penciled by Norman Maurer, inked by Joe Kubert, the writer is unknown, though it could be Maurer.
Next issue, there was a non-3-D sequel story about the collapse of the 3-D comic trend.
Talk about your short-lived fads!
We'll be presenting that story on Friday!
