Fosdick's "Joan of Arc" triptych.

New Wave science fiction author Philip Jose Farmer offered a more interesting bad Joan in his two novels Image of the Beast (1968) and Blown (1969). His scenario imagines a race of powerful aliens who reincarnate throughout history, inspiring mortal legends about vampires, werewolves, ghosts and similar monsters. A modern Los Angeles detective learns that two such creatures were Joan of Arc and Gilles de Rais. Madly in love, they resolved to reincarnate as a single being after their deaths. Their rebirth has backfired, however, resulting in a monstrous shared form: Gilles’s bearded head is now the size of a golfball and barely sentient, capable only of biting people and gibbering in archaic French. It dwells in the reincarnated Joan’s uterus and sometimes emerges from her vagina, at the end of a fleshy, snakelike tube. This proved to be the two books’ most famous image, and 1970s French editions featured a version illustrated by Moebius:

The Literary Image of Joan of Arc: ..

What we don’t know about Joan of Arc could fill a server farm. Yet the basic facts of her life are simple enough that they’ve continuously inspired children’s books. A teenage peasant who never held a formal position of power, she is more famous today than the French king she fought for or the English king she opposed. (Charles VII, to us, is simply the king who met Joan.) She has spawned movies, plays, fashion lines, advertisements and 1920s flapper hairstyles. Christians, feminists, transgender activists, neopagans, leftists, the French Resistance and Marine Le Pen supporters have all revered (and repurposed) her story.

Joan of Arc was naive, a holy fool – if she wasn’t in secret extremely shrewd and pragmatic. The saintly ‘voices’ she claimed to hear were schizophrenia – if they weren’t ergotism, or epilepsy, or purely a rhetorical device.
