A Christmas Carol - Jack Chick Style!

If you're like me, it's just not Christmas without A Christmas Carol. It's the ultimate story of repentance and redemption without being too preachy. That is, until Jack Chick gets ahold of it. Here is Chick's rendition of Charles Dickens' classic story.

Uh, wait, where does it say any of this in the original Dickens novella?

A few panels ago Scrooge said he didn't care about God. Why is he suddenly concerned about Judgement Day?

Was that supposed to be a joke?

Is it just me, or does Scrooge look like Tiny Tim (the singer)?

Wait, is Chick trying to reconcile Dickens' view of judgement with the Bible? In fundamentalist circles, ain't that considered . . . blasphemy?

That's it? No Ghost of Christmas Past? Or Present? Or Future? Just a simple prayer and every thing's okay? Dickens is tossing in his grave!

And I thought the Jim Carrey Christmas Carol was crappy!

Merry Christmas, anyway.
