Pop Culture Fix: This “Warrior Nun” Scene That Never Got Filmed Is Pretty Dang Queer & Cute

Someone sent me and my wife anonymous donuts this morning! Thank you if you’re out there! I hope they’re not POISONED!!! Here’s your midweek Pop Culture Fix!

+ Warrior Nun showrunner Simon Berry posted a couple of pages of a scene that never got filmed, and therefore didn’t make it into the show — and it is pretty dang queer and cute! I actually started making a silly stick-person comic book page out of it, but ran out of time — don’t worry, though! You can see my extremely professional art below!

+ ART!

  1. Love the Warrior Nun Art – pretty good. Everyone loves a visual. We will continue for as long as it takes to see Ava and Bea together again with all their sisters and crew. Thanks for covering #SaveWarriorNun!
