His stuff is still pretty much what's used on most products and marketing, right?

I've been listening to a lot of comic book podcasts lately (there are so freaking many, one could probably find a podcast or two devoted to every title every released), and one group of podcasters reveres his work so much that they follow every mention of Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez' name with "hallowed be his name".

Some of the licensed stuff still uses his designs, though the New 52 branding pushed much of it aside for Jim Lee's new designs.

I always liked these crossover events, and I like the TPB collections.

I remember the novel and mini series of Thorn Birds was popular in the late 70's and early 80's..

I'm shocked that he actually posted. I don't think I've ever seen you post in Comic Talk, Geofferson.

Chester Brown did an illustrated Book of Mark, with Jesus angry all the time.

Re: Religion in Comics

Jack T. Chick has passed away at the age of 92. His Chick Tract releases are some of the most shocking, paranoid and laughable comics ever released. I just found out that his publishing office is in the next city over from where I live.

Some have said that he was the most successful underground publisher in comic history.

Bleeding Cool


Here's a good site that reviews and dissects his Tracts, showing the differences between the original and revised versions - Tract Dissections
