Battle Pope

God enlists the Pope to kick ass and take names as the Devil makes another play at conquering earth. In additon to infallibility, the Pope now has muscles and guns (and JC as a sidekick). Unfortunately, Battle Pope is neither very sacriligeous (although your mileage may vary) nor very funny. I suppose if this is your first exposure to a crude version of God / Jesus / Santa Claus /the Church then you may be thrilled by the naughty depiction. For me, I've seen it enough times that it no longer has much cache. I'm typically a fan of Kirkman's writing, but here his jokes seem well-travelled. On the positive side, Tony Moore's art along with Val Staples's coloring is lively and works well with the material, keeping it lighthearted rather than dark.
