Cartoonist Jack Chick has passed away at the age of 92, according to a Facebook post made by Chick Publications.

Chick was known for his small comic strip booklets, called "Chick tracts," that warned of social dangers through the lens of Chick's fundamentalist Christian beliefs.

Chick tracts warned of the dangers of everything from rock music, to Freemasonry, to Catholocism, Judaism, and Islam. One of Chick's most famous works, "Dark Dungeons," which espoused Chick's belief that roleplaying games such as Dungeons & Dragons were tools of Satanism, was adapted into an independent short film in 2014.

Chick Publications estimates that it has printed over 800 million copies of its well known tracts.
