Chick Tracts: Dark Dungeons (1984)

Jack Chick started publishing what are now known as “Chick Tracts” in the early ’70s, and his lunatic company is still cranking them out today. I remember them circulating at school, scaring the shit out of all the kids—which was (and is) the whole point.

Dark Dungeons is actually pretty mild compared to the others, and it’s a perfect distillation of the hysteria surrounding D&D at the time. (You might also remember Mazes and Monsters, a 1982 TV movie starring Tom Hanks as an obsessed, possibly schizophrenic college student who starts to believe the game world is the real one.)

These are just a few panels. You can read the whole thing at Chick Publications.
