Chick self-published his first religious mini-comic, Why No Revival?, in 1960, while working for a tape recorder company. Initially working out of his kitchen, he became increasingly prolific throughout the decade, and officially incorporated Chick Publications in 1970. The anti-Catholic conspiracy theories that would become a prominent feature of his work were inspired by Alberto Rivera, a con man who claimed to be a former Jesuit priest with insight into the Vatican’s secret (and seemingly counter-intuitive) involvement in Islam, communism, abortion, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the Jonestown Massacre. With the help of Fred Carter—with whom he split drawing duties starting in 1972—and at least one more unknown artist, Chick produced over 250 tracts, which were translated into over 100 languages.
