Author Bio

Sergio Cariello was born in Brazil in 1964 and started drawing as soon as could hold a pencil.  At the age of five, he already knew that he wanted to be a cartoonist.  And so did everyone else--he drew on church bulletins, napkins, and every surface wtihin his reach.  He currently resides in Holiday, Florida.

Sergio has worked for Marvel Comics and DC Comics.  He attended the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art as well as the Word of Life Bible Institute in upstate New York.

In February, 2006, he was contacted by David C. Cook to gauge his interest in a new project; completely re-illustrating Cook's classic Picture Bible.  What David C. Cook couldn't know is that Sergio had grown up in Brazil with a Portuguese translation of that very same Picture Bible.  He was reading the Picture Bible before he learned to ride a bike! Even though he knew as a kid that he wanted to be a comic artist, he never would have dreamed that he would one day get to work on the Picture Bible itself!

    I bought this for my friend's son. He's 11-years-old, and I don't think there's one person in his life, other than myself, who has ever talked to him about Jesus or God. With all the horrible news about what will come to pass this September, I decided that now's the best time to reach him, and I am so glad I bought this book! In fact, I loved it so much that I bought one for myself!

    Now, this isn't a clear-cut "God's Word" version of the Bible. At all. There are no "begets" or family history names. A lot of the old laws have gone unmentioned, however, what this Bible lacks it more than makes up for in comprehension and explanation. A great starter Bible for adults and kids. Sometimes pictures DO help!

    My 28 year old son saw the Action Bible on my kitchen table and said, "cool...i would've read the Bible alot more if you would've got me a Bible like that."

    You see my 28 year old son is a very talented artist and seemed very impressed by the animation in the Action Bible. I am very grateful to God and CBD for providing such a wonderful Bible at such a reasonable price for my grand daughter and grand son to learn about the loving character of our Mighty King Jesus. Thanx CBD.

    I got this for my son's 7th birthday. It has been such a blessing! I love the wonderful, comic book-like illustration. I also love that the stories are in chronological order. My 16-year-old son has been caught several times enjoying this bible as well. This bible story book has exceeded my expectations, and my children are learning the Word. For this I am grateful.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Sergio Cariello
Located in: Holiday, Florida
Submitted: March 25, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.   I was born in Brazil.At the age of 5 I already knew I wanted to draw comics.At 11 I had my first comic strip published in Local newspapers-Frederico, the Detective. At Caliber Press I penciled, inked and lettered the HP Lovecraft's Dagon, with writer Steven Jones.At Marvel I drew Daredevil,Conan,Thor, Captain America, Disney's Quasimodo,Spider-man, the Avengers and others.Drew Batman, Superman, New Gods, Young Heroes in Love, Superboy, Steel, Guy Gardner, Hawkman, Man called X, The Flash, Deathstroke,Wonderwoman, Green Arrow, Azrael and others for DC.Taught 7 yrs at the Joe Kubert School.Member of the National Cartoonists Society since 1995.Worked with Chuck Dixon and Beau Smith in the Wildcat mini-series.Dark Horse(Beau's and mine Badlander), Image(Spawn),Sojourn, Lady Death, Scion, Crux, and other Crossgen titles,Iron Ghost with Chuck and ATP) and many others. Currently working on the Lone Ranger(Dynamic Forces), Son of Samson with writer Gary Martin for Zondervan/ Harper Collins, and other gigs here and there.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  To do a Life changing, Eternal value, relevant project the way I love to do: Comic Book format. When they called me, offering me to do it, I could not contain my excitement to revamp the Classic Picture Bible I read when I was a kid. This has probably been the most significant project of my life. I wish I was given more time to accomplish it but I had to do it in 3 years.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Get entertainment and get inspired, hopefully get touched inwardly, reconnecting with the Artist of artists: Jesus Christ , who is present not only in the New Testament but in the Old testament as well. So I hope they gain life, full, never ending life.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I know the main Character, Jewish carpenter of this story of Love and redemption. Many times, while drawing the pages I found myself in need of applying the life teaching principals within this Divine inspired script in my own private world. One of the colorists got a personal life encounter with the messiah of the story. The subject matter taps into our soul in ways that can be revolutionary for our betterment .

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  From comics, strips and graphic novels: Hal Foster's Prince Valiant, Joe Kubert's Tarzan, John Buscema's Conan , Frank Frazetta's books , Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon and many others . In the movies side: Mel Gibson's "The Passion" and Franco Zeffirelli's "Jesus of Nazareth" .

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  They can learn more about me and my work in my blog, my website,or even chat with me in Facebook or twitter by just searching for me in the internet.
