    @Oxbrow: That's so funny! Strangely, it could sum up Benedict XVI. If I remember right, they elected him as a kind of 'fill-in' pope who was not expected to last long because of his age. A stop-gap in the Papal succession, really.

    The being known as Squid Pope came from a higher dimension to feed on the emotions of human beings. It used its telepathic powers to become pope and using religion created a world of bliss and pain to feed on.

    -3- : I noticed ours are similar (tentacle monsters from higher dimensions) . But I really dig the trippy neon coloring yours has.
    Oxbrow : Creative idea. Reminds me of the William Hughes Mearns poem.

    Warren Ellis for Pope.
    Once I'd had this idea, well, I really couldn't resist. Pope Warren I. In my defence, he did kind of ask for it.

    That is beautiful! Gotta love Pope Ellis, too. The grinder symbol on the hat is a nice touch.

    "The grinder symbol on the hat is a nice touch."

    Wait... Warren's on Grindr?

    Oh, different spelling. Never mind.

    The moment I read the challenge I thought of the Pope Joan legend.

    By the way, what happened to that IMG code thing that we used to use to post entries? I didn't see it anywhere on my comment and had to post this as a direct link.

    My humble homage to one of the greatest Popes I know of, in this timeline or any.
    Pope Paul Pope I, AKA The Pulphope Pope; reign 2025 - 2075; born 1970, THB Timeline; replaced official Biblical Canon with official Comics Canon, only Pope to complete several highly acclaimed graphic novels during his reign.

    I would like to state for the record that this is not a serious attempt at this remake/remodel, merely a very stupid idea that occurred to me and wouldn't let me rest until I produced it. I apologise in advance.

    There, done. Please carry on with the real art.

    @Purple Wyrm: never mind it's not a serious R&R entry - it's too funny!

    Mr. Warning Si, if I have two ideas, can I post one on the artists' thread?

    @kmcleod, that is how people usually do it. @DBed, you rock. And @-3-, it's good to see you back.

    Elected John Paul Benedict I in March 2013 as the lone survivor of the College of Cardinals' ill-fated Transdimensional Gateway Experiment, retired for health reasons the same year and officially died in 2014, although rumors persist that he did not really die but pupate, and that he lies sleeping in his papal cocoon in a vault beneath St. Peter's to emerge one day and usher in a new age of glory and wonder.
