Jack Chick Meets the Elder Gods

Posted by on January 24th, 2011 at 9:12 AM

The “anti-idiotarian” blog Armed and Dangerous has been blessed by the artist Howard Hallis with a painstaking parody of Jack Chick bringing his gifts to bear on behalf of the Lovecraft pantheon. Just click here and you’ll find the comic along with a helpful text by A&D. Click here and you’ll find Mr. Hallis’s web site, which at the moment features some striking collages he has created.

A few years back I told a friend that nobody cared about H.P. Lovecraft anymore. My reasoning was that I hadn’t noticed his books when looking at the fantasy/horror sections of bookstores. I really was wrong, wasn’t I? On the other hand, I don’t know that people still read him, just that his creations come in very handy for pop culture jokes.

… Oh wow, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls tarot cards.
