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!
MichelePennsylvaniaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5ExcellentNovember 23, 2016MichelePennsylvaniaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have bought this for each of my children and all the other kids on my Christmas list! Highly Recommend this bible! My kids are 2, 4 and 6 and for a year now the two oldest ones look at their Bible in their beds with their flashlight every night and never get bored of it. Excellent artwork!
Mother of 35 Stars Out Of 5Good buyNovember 2, 2016Mother of 3Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I ordered this Bible as a Christmas gift for my 11 year old daughter. She has an extremely hard time understanding her KJV that she has completly given up on reading it all together. This action bible was recommended to me by many people. I've skimmed through the Bible and it looks like it will be great for her. It is very well put together and half the price on this website than other stores. shipping was as expected. I'll be looking to purchase again when my 2 boys get older.
RedBeardBibleMan3 Stars Out Of 5Great Looking...but content lacks.October 30, 2016RedBeardBibleManQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3When I was a kid, my father had a Children's Bible that he read to us every night. It had color illustrations that pulled no punches. The Valley of Dry Bones had a gruesome picture of the actual valley filled with bones and skulls, cool stuff for an imaginative kid, this action bible reminds me of that, which is a good thing! The pictures and action are great, but, that Children's Bible from my childhood, also had literal text that told more detailed stories and gave actual biblical detail so that I heard the entirety of what was being illustrated. I still remember the great picture of Esther pointing out Haaman as the man threatening her people and his look of shock and fear, it caused me to have a 3D view of the Bible that stays with me till this day.
The Action Bible brings Bible stories to life in some good ways, but there is a lot of scriptural content that is missing that will draw the student or child to search further. It is a good entry level and probably a great reading to kids at night story book, but out side of that I can't see it being very functional.
For what it is, it will be a powerful tool, but it MUST be used in conjunction with the actual scripture itself. I suggest pairing it with a New Living Translation, because the storytelling style would be similar.
Toddly5 Stars Out Of 5Well worth the money.September 20, 2016ToddlyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Some persons view telling the Bible's story's and truths through this type of artwork as being "disrespectful", but those same persons may have taught Sunday School or a midweek youth class with much less visually appealing artwork or by using the old flannel board teaching method or have/do condone that methods. What is the difference there other than that this Bible story compilation tells the stories of God's truth in a more beautiful and visually descriptive manner that is excellent in it's genre? The illustrations are gorgeous and his style of art is wonderfully executed. There are some pieces of artwork in this book that are totally stunning and that caused me to stare at it in sheer awe because of the intricate work that must have taken hours upon hours to complete. He visualized so much and I'm sure, being an artist myself, could not fully implement all that was before his soul's eye. He truly shared part of his soul with us via this his paramount artwork.
Although this book skips through and vaguely covers the Word from Creation to Tribulation, it is NOT God's Word. However, it CONTAINS God's Holy Word; but it is not a type of or version of God's Holy Word. I do not see why it claims to be a Bible, because it is not a Bible. It is however a fascinatingly and gorgeously illustrated book of illustrations that graphically tells the reader Bible storys galore.
I would think that any one, a young child aged 5 to an adult, would be able to enjoy this book for what it is. I would encourage parents of younger children, aged 5 to 10 years old, to bring this book forward in attempt to do two things:
1. To give them, or allow them to use, a book to read that will encourage their interest in the Bible to flourish & grow, and
2. To help prod new or intermediately skilled readers onward toward better reading skills through a fun and exciting way.
(Not to mention sharpening the pencils of their imagination).
If you can pick this Bible up for $20 or less, in my opinion, it is a great bargain and even at $30 it is worth the money but that is pushing the envelope on price.
If you desire a Bible with words to guide your mind's eye then look elsewhere. But if you want a book that is a collection of biblically based graphic art at its best then look no further, you've just found it.
I gave my copy to a missionary who was very interested in it, therefore I am going to purchase this enjoyable book on this site at HALF of the cost of what I paid for it in a store's book section a couple of years ago.
I hope that this review has helped you in your decision of whether to buy this finely illustrated and scripted book or not.

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" .
