AUGUST 2012 UPDATE: Welcome Boing Boing readers! Read the Chick comic tract parody below and watch the short film Ivy League Exorcist: The Bobby Jindal Story on YouTube. Also, check out our production company web site. The site has a cool Ivy League Exorcist movie poster. We at CultJam Productions have some other film projects in the pipeline, so if you would like e-mail notifications of future flm releases or if you want to give CultJam Productions your feedback, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Also, to go to the front page of the blog, click here.
Here is the parody of a Jack T. Chick tract that we gave out at Comic-Con last week. Click on a page to enlarge. AUGUST UPDATE: Mitt Romney picked Paul Ryan to be his running mate so the tract is a little dated now but still enjoyable.
UPDATE 3: CultJam Productions created a new Chick tract parody called "Ivy League Exorcist." This new tract takes the basic idea of the tract below and adds new gags and the kind of things that Chick tract fans love.
What was funny about the whole thing was that some real fundamentalists showed up and we passed out our comix tracts near them. The fundies thought we were on their team! Model Jessie Hail has a YouTube video where she flouts the fundies; I am behind the guys with signs passing out faux Chick tracts to unsuspecting Comic-Con attendees:
UPDATE: A DERIVATIVE TRACT.
Some readers have noticed that the Chick parody tract “A Demon-Hunting Veep” has elements of various Chick tracts. Chick tract enthusiasts know that the cover and premise of the tract are derived from “A Demon’s Nightmare” (one of the demons is based on the demon in “A Demon’s Nightmare?” and the other demon is based on the protagonist of the eponymous “Stinky”). Page one has the title characters from “Gladys” and “That Crazy Guy!” burning in the fire and brimstone of Hell. Page three has silhouettes based on images from “The Story Teller,” “Fire Starter?” “Party Girl,” “Fallen,” “The Great Escape,” and “Last Rites.” Page four has Don (the band member from “Angels” who was into vampirism) and the pompous professor from “Big Daddy?” experiencing the eternal fires of damnation. Page five has supposedly satanic symbols from various Chick tracts and comic books—notably “The Last Generation.” Also on page five, the note that it isn’t necessary to burn the tract is a paraphrase of a line from “Spellbound.” The reference to “Satan’s Spiritual Structure” is taken from “Angel of Light.”
