™ and ©2005 Robert Kirman & Tony Moore

Anything that portrays Jesus Christ as a spaced-out slacker dude with a finger up his nose and The Pope as a cussing, cigar-smoking, womanizing sadist will offend a lot of folks who claim Christianity in general or Catholicism specifically as their religion of choice. Most persons of such persuasion should steer far clear of Battle Pope, a sometimes funny comic book that revolves around a farcical brand of spiritual warfare in which Judgment Day cometh and God, displeased with The Pope and many other members of the human race, lets Earth be overrun by demons.

Fortunately for the potentially redeemable Pope, God calls upon The Holy Father, outfits him with muscles, weapons, and a costume, and sends him on a mission to battle the mother of all baddies: none other than Lucifer himself.

Robert Kirkman (Invincible, The Walking Dead) is responsible for this blasphemous (or harmlessly ribald, depending on your perspective) piece of work, which was previously published several years ago in black and white by Funk-O-Tron. Kirkman’s writing has come a long way since.
