The Pope quits, and comics react
These days, it doesn’t take long between a news story breaking and a couple of comics artists posting some sketches in reaction. Here’s a couple that have shown up from members of the sketch blog Drawbridge, 2000AD mainstay Simon Fraser and Tim “Fahrenheit 451” Hamilton. Fraser isn’t the first comic artist to point how just how downright … Emperor Palpatine-like … Pope Benedict XVI had a habit of looking. To Hamilton, however, it seems like just another occasion to display his ongoing preoccupation with Moebius-esque conical headgear.
