Chick’s views have been spread mostly through the tracts and more recently, online. His company, Chick Publications, says it has sold over 750 million tracts, comics tracts and comic books, videos, books, and posters designed to promote Evangelical Protestantism from a Christian fundamentalist perspective or point of view. They have been translated into more than 100 languages. Chick was an Independent Baptist who followed a premillennialdispensationalist view of the End Times.

Controversial evangelical cartoonist Jack Chick died in his sleep at the age of 92 on Sunday, with secular news sources highlighting his legacy of offending Roman Catholics, Jews, Muslims and others, though supporters remembered his “soul-winning” mission.
Jack Chick passed away on the evening of October 23, peacefully in his sleep.
He was interred in a small private ceremony. He only became ‘offensive’ in this crazy day and age???
