We haven't come across one of these since Pennsylvania.

    haha! i’ll leave the same exact comment that I left when you saw one in Pennsylvania on your walk across the USA:

    Jack Chick is a true American oddity. He’s perhaps the most published cartoonist/comic stripper in history (more than Charles Schulz with Peanuts), he’s apparently some sort of billionaire, has a publishing factory near los angeles with like 50 employees, and he’s never been seen or photographed. There’s only grainy photos of him from high school yearbooks.

    I bought a whole pack of this filth at a “Christian” bookstore years ago. The clerk said, “don’t you just love these?”

    Well, no. But they are fascinating. One of them demonizes Jehovah’s Witnesses, and once when a Witness at my door attacked my church, Presbyterian, for considering the issue of gays, I thought of running into the house to get it for him, in exchange for his pamphlets.

    Jack Chick would make a great subject for an investigative reporter.

    Someone used to leave these in the stalls in the toilets at the plant I worked in-a clever scheme, because you invariably read it as you sat there.

    Going to the Pennsylvania link for these and seeing the photos on the right side made me nostalgic for your/our trip across US. It was truly awesome. And I enjoy learning about NY every day. Is it possible when you’re titling the photos that you could put a small q, bx, b, m, or s at end so we would know where you were?
