Welcome to the Jack Chick Knock-off Wing

Chick Tracts get read! So expect plenty of knock-off tracts to pop up and copy the same format. The following Christian comic tracts are similar in size and cartoon format to JTC comix. If you encounter comic tracts not listed here, please email info or send the actual tract so it can be included (address at bottom of page)

Another Gospel (by Gospel Tract Distributors, Portland OR) Topic: Jehovah's Witnesses are going to hell. Tract size, all text, no pix. Sports a pretty cool illustration of a hooded devil on the front. (Donated by Samson.)

At Last I'm Free to Live, The True Story of Tom Skinner (by Gospel Tract Distributors, Portland OR)- Black exploitation story of a black gang member who turns to football (and Christ) to get his life together. (Donated by Samson)

Bikers Weekend (by Chaplain Dann, La Verne CA) Crude artwork (dated 1983) from the same Dann featured in Chick tracts (THE LETTER, REVEREND WONDERFUL). In fact, whenever he appears in his own tract, Dann pastes in an his image from Chick's tract-- which only underscores how primitive his artwork is in comparison to Chick's. See also LONG WAY TO THE SON, THIS WAS YOUR LIFE, COWBOY'S LAST ROUND-UP, FROM CARL TO CARLA TO CHRIST, RAIL-ROADED, REVENGE SEEKERS, GOLDEN YEARS, and PARTY TIME.

Ruckman's Apocalypse This is not a tract at all, but a hard cover coffee table book published by Bible Believers Press, Pensacola Fl. What makes it Chick-like are the paintings by Peter Buckman, who is also an old time artist and preacher. He sells Chick tracts through his Bible Baptist Bookstore, along with his own tracts. When he preaches, he draws pictures for the audience. In this book, the "end times" are quoted on one side of the book, while beautifully painted in full color on the other page. By "beautiful", I mean in all it's bloody glory. It's a treasure trove of Hell fire & demons & even UFOs!

Could This Be You? (Life Messengers) Page one says it all. "This is the account of the remarkable and alarming vision, received by General Wilson Booth, founder of the Salvation Army." 32 pages, good line art illustrations except the last 8 pages of text. No date provided.

Cowboy's Last Round-up (by Chaplain Dann, La Verne CA) Crude artwork (dated 1981) from the same Dann featured in Chick tracts (THE LETTER, REVEREND WONDERFUL). Tells the story of how a friend rode Dann's horse, falls, and eventually gets saved.

End of the World, The (unknown origin) A professionally done 20 page tract with excellent art which stops abruptly in the middle and launches into 9 pages of preaching. Another odd aspect of this tract (besides its mysterious author) is that it features a panel stolen from Chick's THIS WAS YOUR LIFE (the scene of the funeral). Other than the heavy text ending and the ripped off Chick panel, this is one of the best imitation tracts yet.

Facts of Life, The (by Gospel Tract Distributors, Portland OR) Mostly text, but first third is a comic of a baby fetus dreaming of being born, when it instead gets aborted. The rest of the tract contains a few sketches and very graphic photos of dead babies. The ERA probably loves this one. (Donated by Samson.)

Finished Wonder, The (by Gospel Tract Distributors, Portland OR) Topic: Catholics are fooled to believe they are Christians. Tract size, all text, no pix. (Donated by Samson.)

Freedom Rider (by Christian Biker's Association, Ontario Canada)- Kind of one dimensional line art, but otherwise very similar to Chick format. Tells the story of a Motorcycle gang member who goes broke and returns home to become a Christian (like the rest of his family). (Donated by JP Arial)

From Carl to Carla to Christ (by Chaplain Dann, La Verne CA) Crude artwork (dated 1983) from a gay artist named Carl whom Dann saved. (The same Dann featured in Chick tracts like REVEREND WONDERFUL). Whenever Dann appears in the tract, the artist pastes in Dann's image from Chick's tract. The way homosexuals are presented may seem stereotyped and outrageous, but the story is autobiographical. The artist was busted for gay prostitution, then saved in prison by Dann. He drew the tract for Dann in appreciation for Dann's spiritual guidance.

God Is! (Life Messengers' series, printed by World Home Bible League, S. Holland, IL) Topic: God is great. Tract size, all text, no pix. (Donated by Samson.)

Golden Years (By Chaplain Dann, La Verne, Ca.) Crude artwork dated 1986 "by Dann and Rob." Bill is a prison guard who retires and plans the good life. A co-worker stores some stolen coins in Bill's safe. The co-worker dies and robbers break into the safe. The cops catch the intruders and spot the hot coins. Bill is arrested and is sent to the same jail where he worked. He finds some of Chaplain Dann's tracts and becomes saved. Dann prays for him to be exonerated and Bill is soon released.

Good News by Campus Crusade For Christ, copyright 1970. It is the same size,shape,number of pages,format as chick tracts. It is completely in color and written for children. The general story is the good news of God (how to get to Heaven).

Have You Been Brainwashed? (Gospel Tract Distributors, Portland OR) Dr. Gish gives a lecture a college explaining how Evolution can't be true. Originally 1986, revised 1994. (Donated by Samson)

Here's Happiness (by Life Messengers, Seattle WA) A cartoon tract about two men on a plane talking about the afterlife. This tract is available with a white or Negro cast. 32 pages of good line art, except for the last 2 1/2 pages of tiny text.

Hijacked! (Living Waters Publications, Bellflower CA) Comic style tract telling the story of of a surviver of a Hijacking where everyone is sucked out the plane. Only those who believed the warning of the pilot (who was killed for warning them) had a chance to put on parachutes. 30 pages, glued spine (no staple). Illustrated by Richard Gunther. (See also Killer on the Loose.)

Hippy Come Home (1968 Rusthoi Publications). 24 page comic tract (3 9/16" wide x 4 1/4") with red 2nd color tract. The artwork looks similar to Archie comics, but the story is much darker. See plot and pictures.

Hooked For Good, The True Story of Sammy Hall (by Life Messengers, Seattle WA) Comic strip style story with decent art showing Sammy go from nobody to rock superstar to rock bottom... then saved by Jesus.

How To Know You're Going To Heaven (Solid Rock Baptist Church, NJ). Comic strip tract comparing the reader's spiritual birth to that of a baby being born and growing. (Donated by David Spallone.)

I Did It My Way (Christian Publicity Organization, UK. Circa 1970s or 80s)

I Discovered the Real Person and Power Behind Witchcraft (Life Messengers, ©1986 World Home Bible League) "This is the true story about Ben Alexander, who was a spiritualist medium for several years. He is an authority on the occult and witchcraft." 32 pages with good line art, except the last 3 1/2 pages of text.

It's Much Later Than We Think (Gospel Tract Distributors, Portland OR) George refuses to believe in heaven in hell. His son dies and goes to heaven, but when George dies, he winds up in a rather warmer climate... (Donated by Samson)

I Was Buried Alive! (Life Messengers, Seattle WA) The true story of Gene Neill, a big time drug dealer who was sentence to 50 years solitary confinement in prison. He found Jesus and was set free (in more than one way). 32 pages.

Killer On The Loose! (Living Waters Publications, Bellflower CA) Comic style tract telling the story of Ray Comfort and his efforts to help victims of drug abuse and demonic possession. There is also a section on the subliminal demonic messages in rock music. 30 pages, glued spine (no staple). Illustrated by Richard Gunther. (See also Hijacked.)

Left Behind (Christian Media, Jacksonville OR) A tract that contradicts Chick's view of the rapture, but goes to great lengths to look like a Chick tract.

Lenny (Christian Publicity Organization, UK. Circa 1970s or 80s).

Living Water (Harvest Ministries, Riverside CA) Cartoony style tract playing up the water metaphore. "God is like a cloud, as much vapor (ourselves) as we give to him is as much rain (blessings) He will give to us..." etc. etc. 2.5" x 4.25 inches. Art by Greg Laurie.

Lonely Cabin on the 40-Mile (Gospel Tract Distributors, Portland OR) Well illustrated comic strip tale of three tough guys who get snowed into a cabin during the 1800s, and how the only thing they have to read is a Bible. Can you guess what happens? (Donated by Samson)

The Loner (By Chaplain Dann, La Verne CA). A faux autobiographical story about Dann's early cowboy exploits, when he first started breaking horses at the famous Matador Ranch in Channing Texas. According to the tract, rookie Dann becomes the victim of hazing by the other hands. He's beat up and left bleeding on the side of the road. The daughter of the manager nurses and ministers to him, and Dann turns to Christ. That girl later becomes his wife (though that future is not mentioned in the tract). Her name is Esther, and many of the images have her actual photograph pasted in over the illustration (as does Dann). Although Dann did in fact work as a cowboy at the Matador Ranch before WW2, and cowboys did play cruel jokes on one another, the plot is fictional. Dann didn't meet Esther until after the war when he was discharged from the Marines.

Long Way To The Son (by Chaplain Dann, La Verne CA) This was apparently drawn by Dann (dated 1983). The artwork is crude but the fact that it's the same Dann featured in Chick tracts (THE LETTER, REVEREND WONDERFUL) makes it of special interest to Chick fans. In fact, whenever he appears in his own tract, Dann just pastes in an his image from Chick's tract-- which only underscores how primitive his artwork is in comparison to Chick's. See also BIKERS WEEKEND and THIS WAS YOUR LIFE.

Lost and Found (Gospel Tract Distributors, Portland OR) Crude style comic characters explain the importance of Jesus to kids. (Donated by Samson)

Madman ("An Incessant Design Publication")

My Search (by Life Messengers, Seattle WA) Text heavy tract with charcoal illustrations strewn throughout. (Donated by JP Arial)

Nothing (by Published by Jon-Mikel Gates, date unknown.) The contents of this comic aren't a parody but the format does mimic Jack Chick tracts perfectly. The interior story is actually about the last days of St. Thomas Aquinas. Written and drawn by Jon-Mikel Gates. Specs: 5 × 2¾", 20 pages.

Party Time (By Chaplain Dann, La Verne, Ca.) Tells the story of a clean cut boy who falls in with the wrong crowd and suffers the near fatal consequences. David graduates Christian high school with honors. His father gives him a car. Instead of going to college, he starts to party with porn queens. He doesn't "do it" with them, however, so when the car goes over the cliff, the tart dies but he is spared. He brings other sinners to Christ at the funeral.

Rail Roaded (by Chaplain Dann, La Verne CA) Crude artwork (date unknown) from the same Dann featured in Chick's tract, REVEREND WONDERFUL. Whenever he appears in the tract, Dann pastes in his image from Chick's tract. This is the story of a fellow who is framed and goes to prison, but prayers are answered when Chaplain Dann visits the framed convict and he is soon released.

The Revenge Seekers (By Chaplain Dann, La Verne, Ca.) In this story, Cowboy Dann is a gunslinger who is shot by outlaws. He is rescued by a couple and nursed back to health. When he leaves, the outlaws arrive to rob the couple and burn down their church. Dann returns and sets out to catch and kill the thieves. The bandits find a Bible in the loot and become saved. Dann catches them but they have changed. They all return to the newly rebuilt church and live happily ever after.

Ronny Reb (by Life Messengers, Seattle WA)- Very stylized cartoons, ala Rocky & Bullwinkle. Tells the tale of a hippy who winds up getting taken to hell by the Serpent (devil).

The Snipers (Christian Publicity Organization, UK. circa 1970s or 80s)

A Skateboard Tale --And Or Something More! (Gordon and Smith Skateboards, San Diego, CA) A 20 page comic style tract where one skateboarder explains Jesus to another in "Skateboard Land". Illustrated by B. Stoke. 3" x 4.5 inches.

The Stranger (by Community Baptist Church, Abbotsford B.C.) A 40 page tract with low-to-medium quality artwork. Pretty corny plot too: A couple picks up a bible fanatic hitchhiker on their way to a cabin, where he starts his converting efforts. Meanwhile, a "killer grizzly" is warming up his taste buds for some good atheist meat...

Tell It Like It Is, The Real Issue (by Bible Baptist Bookstore, Pensacola FL)- full color paintings by Peter Ruckman face full pages of text explaining various portions of the King James Bible.

This Was Your Life (by Vol. Cowboy Chaplain Dann, La Verne CA) This was apparently drawn by Dann (dated 1985). The very crude art version of the famous Chick tract story, only featuring an Indian cast. It's by the same Dann featured in Chick tracts (THE LETTER, REVEREND WONDERFUL). Whenever he appears in his own tract, Dann pastes in his image from Chick's tract-- which only underscores how primitive his artwork is in comparison to Chick's. See also BIKERS WEEKEND and LONG WAY TO THE SON.

To Moroni With Love (by Gospel Tract Distributors, Portland OR) Topic: Mormons are deceived. Tract size, all text, no pix. (Donated by Samson.)

Two of A Kind (by Gospel Tract Distributors, Portland OR, reprinted Life Messengers, Holland IL)- Tract about an atheist lecturer who is challenged and humiliated by a Christian in the audience and compared to an insolent brat.The last half of the tract is packed with text with only a few illustrations.
