Mighty Mouse 3-D Comic Cover VintageThe 3-D RARITIES collection is scheduled for release in 2015. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at some of the incredible restoration work being done on the bonus features. 3-D RARITIES will contain two dozen restored images from original 1953 3-D comic books. Utilizing the 3-D Film Archive’s unique anaglyph extraction techniques, these images truly look better than ever before.

Below are three of the newly-restored images. On the left is a page from a faded comic book. On the right is a restoration done by the 3-D Film Archive.

If you have 3-D glasses at home, be sure to place the blue lens over your right eye!

Please note: This red/blue anaglyphic image is for comparison purposes only. The restored images will be presented in full HD on 3-D RARITIES.
