Chick did, at least, give his approval for the production of Dark Dungeons which is utterly hilarious (and surprisingly faithful to the original tract) and makes me want to see anything with Anastasia Higham.

Mertseger--

Though Fred did start changing before he died. IIRC, there was some kind of LGBT organization across from his home, and he got to know people a bit. He started accepting them.

Which got me to drop my fantasy of how he'd meet God. He was already beginning to get the point.

FWIW. Good to see you. [Smile]

Here is a live action version of Big Daddy, the anti-evolution tract, which follows the original very closely(both visually and dialogue-wise), and is quite professionally made.

Hard to tell whether it's meant ironically or not. Going by the guy's other videos, I'd wager he's not a fundamentalist. My guess is that the video was made as a film-school project or something.

I met cartoonist Dan Clowes once, and got in a weird chat with him about how Chick impacted his artwork. Clowes had done a couple tract parodies in his comic. Despite the cringe worthy subject matter, there is something arresting about the way Chick and his cronies use the comic book medium that other artists have sought to duplicate. Maybe the film short is another indication of Chick's artistic impact.

(Somewhere in my stuff I have a first edition copy of Eightball #1 with Clowes' signature and "I [heart] Jack Chick" scribbled on it.)

The style of Chick tracts is an awful lot like the old "Tijuana Bibles", when you come right down to it... (don't google Tijuana Bible at work).
