Flavour of Pope

For over a decade, Will O'Donnell and Bart Rucinski have been shoe-horning Pope references into their art, work and casual conversations. After they met at the University of Manitoba these two have since  taken on work in feature films, television, video games, comics . . . and now the ULTIMATE medium . . . Pope-themed card games!
Under the banner of Yak and Shadow, they have created the comics One Shot Left, Pseudo Snipe Hunt and their populate convention series, Pope Vs. William most recently spent 8 seasons as a writer and performer for the satirical television show The Week Thus Far, and appeared in the film The Editor. Bart had a hand in creating the recent Warhammer Game: The Horus Heresy: Drop Assault and keeps nimble as a lifelong member of internationally renowned dance group S.P.K. Iskry.

"People always ask, 'why the Pope?' and we always say, 'Because no one else is doing it.' You can get any Marvel or DC character from any artist at a con, but who will give you the Pope? We will; that's who." -Bart & William
