A Demon's Nightmare
Jack Thomas Chick is an American publisher, writer and comic book artist, known for his controversial and fundamentalist comic tracts. Born in Los Angeles, California as the son of commercial artist Thomas Chick, he was converted to Christianity in the late 1940s. In 1960, he began writing, drawing and publishing his so-called 'Chick tracts', in order to promote Protestant evangelism from a fundamentalist point of view, dealing with subjects like abortion, homosexuality, non-Protestant religions, rock music and the theory of evolution.
Chick wrote and drew all the initial comics himself, starting with 'Why No Revival?' and 'A Demon's Nightmare'. He established Chick Publications in 1970 and hired Fred Carter to help on the artwork two years later. Besides over 200 small tracts, Chick published comic book series such as 'Crusader Comics', dealing with the occult, Bible prophecy and evolution, and a series about the testimony of anti-Catholic activist Alberto Rivera. Chick's work has been translated in more than 100 languages.
