Spy Pope!

 This is the phenomenon known as Spy Pope!  Okay, so maybe there's no such thing, but why not?  Why can't the dude who doles out crackers and blesses babies do more?  Why does he have to be so old and  hobbly?  That doesn't have to be the case.  He could use his high position to do some good.  He could use his big silly hat to house a camera and other spy stuff.  Anything less is just a waste of a pope.

I was listening to the 'Doug Loves Movies' podcast.  It's Doug Benson's podcast and he had John Lithgow, Paul F. Tompkins and Jimmy Pardo on the October 1st taping.

He's been getting some really good guests lately - so I've been listening quite a lot more.  Anyway - on this particular podcast they were talking and somehow they got off topic and were talking about making a movie staring the Pope as a spy and how he'd have a camera coming out of his big hat.

It sounded like a funny idea, so I did a quick sketch of it - and liked that, so I did a little more, and filled out the scene.  It's still pretty rough, but I liked it.

Who needs James Bond when you've got Spy Pope on the case?
