Chick Trope: Hot Chick on Chick Action

Occasionally, you’ll be reading through a Chick tract, and you’ll stumble across one of the characters reading a Chick tract! Elaborate metafictional construct, or blatant product placement? YOU be the judge!

Trust Me

I’m not sure if this really counts or not, since there is no Jack Chick tract entitled Jesus Loves You. Yet. But this would not be the last time Chick visited the idea of leading prisoners to the Lord through comic books…

The Bull

Here we see the titular “Bull” consigned to solitary confinement (or “the hole”). Fortunately, somebody was kind enough to leave him the Chick tract Somebody Loves Me, which is the heartwarming story of a child who gets beaten to death by his father and dies alone in the street. Hallelujah!

The Little Princess

Chick loves leading people to the Lord with dead children. The Little Princess is the story of a terminally ill girl whose last request is to go trick or treating. Fortunately, some elderly neighbors drop a copy of Chick’s Happy Halloween into her candy bag, thus saving her from an eternity in hell when she dies later that evening.

Somebody Goofed!/Oops!


Here we have an interesting parallel example in Somebody Goofed! and Oops!, which was the exact same story as Somebody Goofed!, only (and I quote) “adapted for Black audiences.” Jack Chick never actually published a tract entitled You Must Be Born Again, so I don’t know if this one counts. However, I’m assuming the You Must Be Born Again tract in the second panel is one that was specifically adapted for Black audiences…

The Letter

Here we see a kindly man trying to lead a hateful woman to Christ with the help of Somebody Loves Me. Personally, I like to think the man is a slimmed down and freshly toupeed Bull, recently paroled and trying to share the very same tract he found in his prison cell. Which means that rude lady will probably be lying in a shallow grave by the side of the road within a few hours.

Angels?

A Christian rock band (with their hit “We’re Gonna Rock, Rock, Rock, Rock with the Rock!”) sells out to a sinister agent named Lew Siffer (get it?) and descends into the kind of madness that could only be pulled from the wrinkled ass crack of Jack Chick. The band falls apart. Bobby dies of AIDS. Jim overdoses. And Don, somehow, becomes a vampire. Fortunately, one of Tom’s fans slips a copy of Chick’s The Contract into his pocket, and he comes to Jesus (as soon as he opens the thing) and rebukes Mr. Siffer. No idea what happens to Don.
