Political cartoonist Ted Rall discusses his latest in a collection of graphic biographies, this time focused on Francis, the People’s Pope. Rall presents the life, ideas, and political impact of the most progressive spiritual leader in the Roman Catholic church’s history. Raised Roman Catholic himself, Ted Rall is able to bring depth to his latest graphic biography as perhaps no other writer or comics artist could. Rall's art is always attuned to the human comedy, his protagonists funny at the same time as they provide a serious account of some of the most pressing issues and struggles of our times.

**Ted Rall** is a political cartoonist, graphic novelist, and columnist. He has illustrated bestselling graphic biographies on Edward Snowden, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, and Pope Francis. He is also a winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award and a Pulitzer Prize finalist. Photo: Wikimedia Commons
