Jack Chick

The storm is over, only one silent penultimate panel today.

Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis.

Today's Mallard Fillmore:

I don't know about that, Mallard, (that article about anti-Christian slurs that you referenced mostly talked about a couple of South Park episodes.) But you might be happy about what I found on the bus today--

A genuine Jack Chick comic!

Yes, these are all available online now (, but there's nothing quite like the excitement of finding one of these things in the wild. (I ran across the entire length of the bus to get to it before someone else sat on it.)

While this particular edition called "The Choice" is relatively tame (no wild-eyed and drooling Muslims or Catholics to be seen,) it is delightfully full of Chick's trademark insanity.

Really, out of context, this might be mistaken for the work of someone like Daniel Clowes or R. Crumb. (But for the bad word processor lettering.) If only Chick wasn't sincere.

And, this--this is just classic.

Jack Chick is simply an American treasure. Where would we be without him?

I love Jack Chick! Some friends of mine made 9 film adaptations of his tracts. You should check it out over at It's a hoot!

"American treasure" -- I love it!
