about True Bible Church
The True Bible Church! comic zine project (2104) deployed the mass promotional methods of Evangelical Christianity to stage a new kind of global graffiti—a graffiti that isn’t about defacing property but still questions authority and infiltrates public spaces.
Operating from the heart of Bible Belt U-S-A, we tapped a group of core backers via a Kickstarter campaign to serve as prankster evangelists to help distribute faux religious tracts around the world. Our 20-page zines look like the Evangelical cartoons of the old-school Chick publishing empire, yet each satirizes contradictions in Christian thought and behavior.
Backers received packs of our first three booklets to disseminate how and wherever they can imagine—in truck stops and churches, coffee shops and geocaches.
