Director: Kurt Kuersteiner | Producer: Dan Wester
Focus Years: 2008 | Country: United States
The world's largest underground publisher - you have never heard of it! For nearly forty years, Chick Publications under the leadership of Jack T. Chick has published nearly one billion religious tracts (palm sized comics) that are now distributed in over 100 languages around the world. In the process, Jack Chickâ€™s name has become revered in the world of fundamentalist teachings, reviled among dozens of major religions and banned as hate literature in several countries including Canada. Outside the world of religion, the tracts have become highly valued pop culture collectibles with presentations in galleries from NY to LA and a permanent collection in the Smithsonian. Notoriously reclusive, Chick Publications for the first time let camera crews in to meet the creators of the infamous works as well as noted authors, artists, critics and collectors who have covered the history of all things Chick. Included here are the art, artists, writers, controversies, death threats, witch spells, illuminati, Catholic assassins and more!
