Strictly speaking, this one isn’t about creationism — but who cares? If you like creationist goofiness, you like Chick comics. Even when they’re not about Noah’s Ark they’re still worth a look. This one is about Halloween.
Why Halloween? It’s because creationists don’t like it. This is explained in an old post we made about an article from Answers in Genesis (AIG), one of the major sources of young-earth creationist wisdom. See Halloween: The Creationist Viewpoint. They see it, not as a harmless night of fun for children, but as a godless celebration of evil that dates back to pagan times. AIG said:
The world of evil is very real, and we should not carelessly expose our children to it.
Jack Chick seems to share that view. In his new comic, a demon with “3” on his chest (indicating his rank in the devil’s hierarchy) sends a junior demon (named Stinky) to earth, as seen in the opening frames. His mission is to find a Halloween gift that Number Three can present to Satan, so that he can move up in rank and replace Number Two.
That’s the plot — evil doings down below. But Jack Chick is a clever fellow, and his comic has a surprise ending. We won’t spoil it for you. Well, why shouldn’t we? The tables are turned and the gift backfires!
Sure, it’s stupid. But it’ll only take a few minutes of your time to read the whole thing. Go ahead — you know you want to. Click here: Stinky.
After that thrilling experience, you’re going to want more. Here’s a post with links to the good stuff: Creationist Comic Books from Jack Chick.
