Abstract
Combining a witty text with 580 dynamic images, this book plunges readers into the fascinating world of cartoonist Jack T. Chick. In over 40 years, Chick has produced over half a billion small religious pamphlets filled with comic book art and dire warnings against all in society the author deems unholy known as “Chick tracts,” along with comic books and newspapers, all designed to “scare hell” out of his readers. The photos display common and rare images from Chick's 170 titles, including both eye-catching cover art and startling interior pages; a fair and balanced text explores the substance of Chick's zealous and/or inflamatory work, in which no group is spared a judgmental examination. A history of Jack T. Chick and his fire and brimstone tracts reveals other graphic artists who have worked with Chick and lists resources available to collectors of their work. Chick literature is reviewed and valued. This book is a must for comic book fans, everyone interested in graphic arts, and anyone who has been exposed to even a single Chick tract.
