Did you really think that an anti-catholic Atheist cartoonist could've ever gained any infamy on the internet?

It fits in with your usual inversion (see also Carlin and the gay marriage storyline).

Coincidentally, even though they are perfectly serious, his comics are perfectly hilarious.

When I worked as a security guard, I worked with a guy who would leave these tracts around the main desk and locker room. Last time I saw him, he had quit his job, wrapped his tie around his head for a bandana, and was busking with his guitar in front of Atlantic Place to earn enough money to hitchike to BC.
Does anyone know who did the art for these? I've seen a couple, including this one, that remind me a LOT of Alfredo Alcala, which would be highly ironic. Ian, you know what I'm talking about...look at the art for the dungeon master, and the linework on the wooden surfaces. If that's not Alcala, it's someone from the SSOC alumni.

The artist is Jack Chick himself! Wouldn't it be interesting if "Jack Chick" was an alias for Alfredo Alcala? Or vice versa? :D

Different tracts have different artists, actually.
Some of them are really ironic, but I forget where to search to find the artist credits now . . . it's really hidden.

Really? I stand corrected, then. I guess Chick just writes 'em all instead.

Hmmm...if Wikipedia is to be believed (and generally, it is...), then the artist for "Dark Dungeons" was Fred Carter, who drew many of the Chick tracts. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Carter_%28artist%29
So, I guess I too stand corrected. I'd like to know if Carter was influenced by the Tribe or the Crusty Bunkers, though...there's definitely a South American feel to his art. I experience a rational disconnect looking at these tracts, as the quality of what I'm seeing and what I'm reading is at odds with each other.
I'm sure some enterprising soul out there could have fun doing a "Garfield Minus Garfield" with these comics.

It'd be really quite neat if someone would do a speech swap in most of these.
