Two New Jack Chick Comic Books


We continue to be amazed by Jack Chick. He was born in 1924, so he’ll be 92 this April. Although his output has been slowing down, and his “newsletter” hasn’t been updated for months, he’s still producing his unique material. We cheer whenever we see a new one

Today is remarkable, because Chick has just announced two new tracts. The first is Gold Fever. It’s about gold miners in the old West, mostly evil, godless men. One of them, just before he dies, gets saved by a preacher. Children may like the thing, but it’s not about creationism, or Noah’s Ark, or anything else we like to write about, so it has no appeal to us.

The second tract isn’t about creationism either, but it’s remarkable for its chaotic plot. The title is The First Jaws. We read the whole thing, and, like the tale of Jonah in the bible, we have no idea what it’s all about. The best part was the pic we copied and placed above this post. We particularly liked the “Yuuuck!” Very inspirational.

Aside from these peculiar products of his later years, it’s impossible to overstate the importance of Jack Chick. Kent Hovind cites him as an authority, and Chick cites Hovind. If you haven’t yet seen his comics, you can read them online using the links in this post: Creationist Comic Books. They’re classics — especially Big Daddy?

As we’ve done before with posts about Jack Chick, we’re declaring this to be an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. Talk about whatever you think is interesting — science, politics, philosophy, etc. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But beware of the profanity filters.

We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it!

    The LDS is telling BYU students to witness on Amazon after people dissed the Book of Mormon. I haven’t read it, but the article quotes Mark Twain, “If Joseph Smith composed this book, the act was a miracle – keeping awake while he did it was, at any rate.”

  2. As with Jack Chick’s latest, this isn’t about creationism but does seem somehow of associational interest: Clear Proof U.S. Government Promotes Witchcraft.

  3. Gotta love the total ignorance of, well, just about EVERYTHING, but especially science. Surviving three days without air, steeping in gastric juices in the digestive tract of a…shark? Whale? The drawings aren’t clear. One looks shark-ish, the other whale-ish. But in either case, no wonder he looked awful!

  4. Another interesting book out his week The Thomas Jefferson Bible

    AiG representatives should be expressing foam orally and such once they read it.

    Yeah, I’d want Kent H citing me as an authority on my resume.

    “Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast”

    How positively Trump-like!

  7. The apocryphal story of the British sailor who survived being eaten by a whale/shark has been thoroughly discredited as a story made up for tourists.

    Also, Jack’s version of the story doesn’t make much sense. Nineveh is nowhere near the Mediterranean Sea.

  8. Also, nice touch by Jack in quoting the non-authentic long ending of Mark at the conclusion.

  9. A bit of a shock! If you Google “geologic column”, page 1 of the results are dominated by ICR, and others!!
    (There’s just one talkorigins article among them.) This doesn’t help students get good information on this topic for sure.

    Something must be done!! Bloggers all put your SEO hats on and publish articles that will dilute the crap in search results, please!
