RIP, Jack T. Chick

At the 2015 SWPACA meeting in Albuquerque, I met a fellow who was writing his Religious Studies Ph.D. dissertation on Jack T. Chick. Some people have all the luck!:
Chick’s tracts had a disturbing power to make you see the world through his eyes, a squirrelly and sweaty vantage point where everything is a demonic conspiracy to rob you of your soul. Chick started off as a garden variety magazine cartoonist in the Virgil Partch mold, but stretched that genial idiom to encompass nightmarish Boschian imagery.
