WARNING: The full graphic novel has blood, violence, gore, as well as nudity with women

The final entry of our Pride edition of Nerdcore Friday is Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Le Pape Terrible (The Terrible Pope). I couldn’t find the English translation of books three and four, so we’ll have to make do with the original French version.

The blurb:

On August 18, 1503, Pope Alexander VI died of a mysterious illness. At dawn, the race for the papal throne began, and to win it, nepotism, debauchery, and poison became commonplace. In addition, Cardinal Della Rovere, the sworn enemy of the Borgia clan, intended to ascend to the supreme function, even if he had to sell his soul to the devil.

Artist: Théo Caneschi

Publisher: Delcourt (2009 in French and 2012 in English)
