    this reminds me of a moment where a usa dennis the menace and far side cartoon had their captions 'accidentally' switched, and both panels were massively improved.

    usa dennis had dennis eating food at the dinner table with his annoyed parents, going 'oh no, not hamsters again'. the far side had snakes at a dinner table with a bowl of dead rodents and a snake going 'good thing i learned how to make sandwiches or else we'd have starved to death by now'.

    why do i remember this crap

    oh crap - i can't remember which one had the drunk thinking about hiccuping. it was just a little background event. i don't recall the construction guy getting impaled though.

    i know jack chick had two ghost artists who were way better than himself, and he had a stroke and you could just tell by looking at his art when this happened.

    There are a lot of weird deaths in JTC's work - I already mentioned the foreman (Hi There is the white version and Wassup is for black people), that guy in the Last Generation tract getting tortured to death by microchip-enhanced . . . something, and getting eaten by people after he dies. In this one Latin American Communist tract the good guy (from Chick's perspective) who was the evangelist in the family gets necklaced (killed by having burning tires around his neck).

    Speaking of reoccurring characters - does any like Little Suzy or does everyone else think she's obnoxious too?

    I think I mentioned this back on KF - in the tracts for black people, God is black (his featureless face is black).

    ^ it seems i may have some catching up to do, but i recall his 'black audience' tracts had the 'stippley' ghost artist. the better of the two, i recall. could have been the artist's own call, idk.

    You mean Punky Brewster? She's in one of my favourite tracts. The one with the cute Muslim boy her token friends fawn over (a rare case of Jack showing an evil person as attractive). His mom tells him and his sister that they have to leave for the airport RIGHT NOW at the end. Subtle.

    I found a chick tract in a park once. I think it was called "The Beast" or some shit,

    Pull up them pants, kid.

    I also remember this one for having the creepiest example of Jack's "cute" eyes:

    hey, thanks

    The second panel is from a second edition, because in the first one the lady gives the dying boy a tract and then lets him die in the gutter. They added the "I'll go for help!" speech balloon.

    Speaking of edits, in the early version of The Last Generation when the man and woman get raptured and their clothes are left behind, you see the lady's bra on the ground. People were outraged and they changed it in later tracts.

    You know who the only people who ever talk about the KJV are? Philologists, Theologians, religious leaders of the Abrahamic faith, and fanatical Christians who REALLY think they got it right with that translation. I don't get how apathetic Christians who can barely be fucked to read scripture in the first place are actually going to have an opinion on the translation they're reading.

    (Yes, this is the part of Jack Chick's worldview of which I find myself incredulous.)

    Are these the first tracts since JTC's death?

    How the fuck do you make a Chick tract without Jack Chick? That just feels cheap and hollow.

    I know, right?
    I think there have been a couple between his death and now, but I do know Help is the first one since then with Fred Carter's...distinct style.

    Chick should be replaced by someone with a slightly different style. Have Alex Jones write the tracts and @Blank can provide the art.

    My exact reaction when I read that.

    Fun fact: I actually have relatives in the ministry so I probably totally could do something like this and people would think it was completely legit.

    He didn't actually make all of them when he was alive and some of them were just TL;DR versions of those godawful conspiracy theory books he published.

    my eyes rolled into my head reading "the last generation" I have to admit that if the opportunity presented itself, Chick would have made the UN "one world under god" and it would look no different than what he was warning about.

    This was JTC's idea of hell

    I would venture to say that JTC's idea of heaven would be hell to far more people than he would be able to comprehend

    I think someone else said it, but it's odd how Americans in Chick Tracts are always so ignorant of Christianity. Even though statistics show that about 70% of Americans identify as Christian.
