Added DiffLines:

* CreatorBacklash: The company, as well as most likely Jack Chick himself, have banned a few Tracts over the years. The most infamous being "Lisa," for obvious reasons if you know what it's about. Another being "Wounded Children," most likely because, while it's stated in the Tract that being gay is the work of Satan, there's nothing in the Tract saying it's necessarily wrong either (unless you're Christian), as well as Satan actually being portrayed more positively than most likely intended, as he's apparently the only being who accepts David for who he is, who's not already gay himself, and actually tries to help him cope with life as a gay person in the 70s-90s, when the Tract takes place.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorExistenceFailure: While he was pretty reclusive all his life, it was announced via the website that Chick passed way on October 23, 2016, at the age of 92 (ironically close to Halloween).

* BannedInChina: The tracts are, in fact, banned in China.[[note]]There still exist both Traditional and Simplified Chinese translations of a few of the tracts, however. Either this was from before the tracts were banned in China, or the tracts were made for Hong Kong and Taiwan, but not mainland China.[[/note]] Also, a couple was found guilty of deliberately mailing certain anti-Islamic tracts to Muslims in Singapore, and convicted of sedition; the bookstore which had imported the Chick tracts for distribution was also dealt with. Some of his tracts have also been banned in Canada as hate literature.
