Publisher's Description

John Paul II was one of the most beloved popes in history. Here is his complete biography told in the graphic novel format. For the first time in beautifully illustrated comics, the entire story of his incredible life is told -- from his youth and inspiration to join the church in his native Poland, through his heroic defiance of the communist regime which first brought him international attention, and to his leadership as Pope.  His inspirational quest for peace and world understanding touched millions, reaching far beyond his faithful followers.  Ages 8 and up.
