Now I'm really curious. In my experience, I knew of them as early as '72, '73, and you say you found 'em in the 60s. Now I'd love to watch a good intensive doc about this so-called "Chick Publications." What kind of a name is that, anyway? Dangdest thing, really.
I always wondered why the people who drew them and inked in the lettering didn't take a run at real comix... at least they would have had more latitude. Seems to me they were deliberately funky-looking publications to as to reel in the unruly youth, get 'em on message good and early. It's amazing they're still around.

Yep. Check out the beliefs section, esp. the "doctrines to be rejected"

If she is invisible how can she be pink? Obviously she exists in the electromagnetic spectrum outside of visible light, perhaps as radio waves. Unless radio waves are pink. Maybe all these wireless routers are painting us all pink and turning us into pinko commies!!!

She exists in the electromagnetic spectrum?? Your ignorance of gods and goddesses is deep and piled very high. She, as all gods are, lives in a plane of existence where mortal man's tools of detection will never pry. Her pinkness is known to us by faith alone. Logic tells us that she must be invisible since we cannot see her.
If you believe in a god that lives in the electromagnetic spectrum you are praying to a false god. Do not be deceived and instead eat pepperoni pizza. Her commandments that you must follow are few and also cured and fermented. Forget these electromagnetic waves or upon her return to earth you will be trod upon by her holy hooves.
Maybe. Duct tape a large pepperoni to the effected region for three days and do not, whatever happens, go to a chiropractor. She has appeared before them and it wasn't pretty. Her hooves are like razors when she is displeased.
If you dream of a pink pony with fermented meat breath do not open your eyes.
T'is a good question! they may have been leaving them on Stage-Coaches for all I know.
As for the Short Pulp & Funky good may to get "The WORD" out to a wide variety of people relatively cheap... short punchy message to get 'em thinking, rather than some rambling tome few people would ever read.
LOL Case in point: The Gideon Society give out entire Bibles 4 FREE. yet relatively few people have ever gotten passed the handful of worn-out stories we all grew up (and weary of) reading.
Leaving them in Bus Stations & on Subway Seats was a stroke of genius if you think about it.
