...Chick is certainly an interesting corner of comics - He issues his comics to forward his beliefs , presumably sincerely held and believing that they will help other people .

  Now , his particular Christian religious beliefs conflict strongly with even the beliefs of many other stated Christians...This is the paradox , if that's the word?? , of free speech...

I was really emotionally traumatized by his stuff when I was younger...so much so, that I saw a Jack Chick comic on the sidewalk a couple of weeks ago and, honestly, had a mini-anxiety attack. 

Wait...Stewie being gay is in the Bible?!

I encountered his stuff as an adult - I have a huge collection of 'em, somewhere.  I could see where a little kid might be freaked out by 'em.

Wait...Stewie being gay is in the Bible?!

 

Yeah, right after the bit about the Rapture being last Saturday.

...Yeah , when I saw the subject of Chick I did immediately think of that !!!!!!!!!

  Being as I'm across the Bay from Oaktown , too...

I believe Lev 18:22 reads "Do not give affected dialogue to a child as one does a man; that is gay."

(Personally, I like the panel of the sinister Catholic priest (who looks a little like Norm Macdonald) with the giant, evil-looking Orthodox priest head taking communion behind him.)

...the sinister Catholic priest...

 

Ah, that brought me back to my schooldays.

 

And its Irish Catholics that are the most murderous and treacherous too. 

 

Go us.

Chick's world is a sad, frightening place.

Must be that time of year again...

 

I first came across Chick tracts in the 1970's, when they were been distributed around the church I had connections with at the time.  This was also when I first encountered Spire Christian Comics - as well as the Archie Faith comics, and I'm not sure which of the two I found scarier at the time...

It'sreally weird that this came up this week. I bought a collection of comics last week that included about a dozen Chick-produced comics from about 1970- 1980. Not the tracts, but full-sized full-color comics! King of Kings: The Bible in Pictures, and several issues of The Crusaders, all in Good or worse condition. The art is several notches above the tracts I've seen scans of, but the coloring is terrible.

 

Once I get them bagged and boarded, I'll take some pictures and post 'em.

Jack Chick stuff was waaaaaaaaay freakier than the Archie Spire comics.
