This marvellous Lego Pope was custom built by a reader, Bob Toomy, and very generously donated to me. He makes his own Lego comics, one of which is Supe Kitchen, which also features this exact same Pope figure in an early story.

I've also gone back and retconned this Pope into comic #1639, where previously I had a rather boring generic old man.

2018-09-15 Rerun commentary: The Pope is wearing a mitre. Another possible choice would have been a camauro, which probably could have been well approximated by a LEGO Santa hat.

I'm pleased to say that my ongoing attempts to teach myself Italian mean I can read[1] the Italian dialogue here without needing the English subtitles.

[1] And understand, you pedants.
